Leave Me Be

Song Description

This song is about finding somebody at a time when you want to be alone. Sometimes love can find you even though you're not looking, and in fact you're actively trying not to meet anybody. It's about reluctance and it is an acceptance that sometimes it's better to walk away from something before it gets complicated.

You took my heart somehow
But it wasn't beating.
You're in my mind right now,
But I'm just not thinking.

Oh you gave you everything,
But what I need.
Oh don't trust anything,
You've sown that seed.

I'm not thinking 'bout tomorrow,
I'm just thinkin' on what might have been.

Don't hand me no torch now
Cos I just won't see.
I am just burnin' here so quietly
So just leave me be.
I am the hopeless loser in love,
Don't make me feel again.
So pleeease, baby.
Leave me be, just leave me be

You clipped my wings that night,
When you said you weren't thinkin',
The way I feel for you it
It just won't sink in.

And I turned away again,
And shrank with dread.
I felt your eyes on me
They killed me dead.

I'm not plannin' for the future,
I'm just getting through the way I do.

The fire rages and you just stand still,
I'm frozen in time somewhere against your will.
The cracks begin to surface and your luck runs out,
But already the green shoots of freedowm defy your doubt.
