When I leave you
I will leave you
Things that might not help you
Things that might
Problems that I never solved
Dreams to keep you up at night
As I leave you
I will leave you
Things that stick for ever
Things that slide
Mysteries I swallowed whole

Happiness I couldn't share I will leave you
Promises I never kept I will leave you
Stories that I never told
Principles betrayed or sold

Love I tried to spread too wide I will leave you
Muscles you can grow in hate I will leave you
Summer darkness
Winter light
Young mans shame and
Old mans pride

When I leave you
I will hate to leave you
That's the heat that grows
With growing old

So never let me leave you
Never let me leave you
Cold
