Lyrics

[Verse 1]

I'll say it straight and plain

I know I've made mistakes

I've always been afraid

(I've always been afraid)

A thousand nights or more

I travel east and north

But please answer the door

[Pre-Chorus]

Can you tell me?

[Chorus]

You say that love goes anywhere

In your darkest time, it's just enough to know it's there

When you go, I'll let you be

But you're killing everything in me

[Verse 2]

Get down on your knees

Whisper what I need

Something pretty

(Something pretty)

I feel that when I'm old

I'll look at you and know the world was beautiful

[Pre-Chorus]

Then you tell me

[Chorus]

You say that love goes anywhere

In your darkest time, it's just enough to know it's there

When you go, I'll let you be

But you're killing everything in me

[Bridge]

I'm done, there's nothing left to show

I try but can't let it go

Are you happy where you're standing still?

Do you really want the sugar pill?

I'll wake up tomorrow and I'll start

Tonight it feels so hard

As the train approaches Gare Du Nord

As I'm sure your kiss remains employed

Am I only dreaming?

[Chorus]

You say that love goes anywhere

In your darkest time, it's just enough to know it's there

When you go, I'll let you be

But you're killing everything in me

[Outro]

When you go, I'll let you be

But you're killing everything in me
