I thought I had it all fixed up
Then the past came in
I thought I had it all closed off
Then the truth came in
Leave it to love to tear me down
Leave it to you when you're not around

I hoped that everything would get back good
I hoped that I could keep you but I never could
See the answers in your eyes
Feel the truth inside your lies

Chorus:
And all the voices in my head
Just could not be chased away
Now my heart is filled with lead
You were too far gone to stay
Leave it to love to tear me down
Leave it to you when you're not around

I could never watch you losing your soul
You gave me one more time and then I let you go
Touch your skin and touch your scars
You can tell me who you are

Chorus:
And all the voices in my head
Just could not be chased away
Now my heart is filled with lead
You were too far gone to stay
Leave it to love to tear me down
Leave it to you when you're not around

Bridge:
And even in my dreams I can see your burning wings
Touch your skin and touch your scars
You can tell me who you are

Chorus:
And all the voices in my head
Just could not be chased away
Now my heart is filled with lead
You were too far gone to stay
Leave it to love to tear me down
Leave it to you when you're not around
