Let the right one in
Let the old dreams die
Let the wrong ones go
They cannot
They cannot
They cannot do what you want them to do
Oh ...

Let the right one in
Let the old dreams die
Let the wrong ones go
They do not
They do not
They do not see what you want them to
Oh ...


Let the right one in
Let the old things fade
Put the tricks and schemes (for good) away


Ah ... I will advise
Ah ... until my mouth dries
Ah ... I will advise you to ...


Ah ... let the right one slip in
Slip in
Slip in


And when at last it does
I'd say you were within your rights to bite
The right one and say, "what kept you so long ? "
"what kept you so long ? "
Oh ...
