Pet the Dog: Listen to Music!

Only Leave Here

I find myself lost in the gears
that I am fixing.
I've seen the silhouette
of a thousand days gone by....

Take not from me
what might cause you any pain.
Only leave here
what can be used again.
Tell me nothing
I won't hear those lies again.
I've laid down for you,
it's time for me to stand.

At times it seems
the only warmth in the world
is in the belly of a mother.
In times as these we're lead to the things we love and rediscover truth.

Take not from me
what might cause you any pain.
Only leave here
what can be used again.
Tell me something
I can learn to trust again.
I've laid down for you,
it's time for me to stand.

The days go with the times.
My face grows with more lines.
If what we give is left behind,
then give them our good.

Take not from me
what might cause you any pain.
Only leave here
what can be used again.
Tell me something
I can learn to live again.
I've laid down for you,
it's time for me to stand.
