  • I took your council and came to ruin,
    Leave me to myself,
    Oh, leave me to myself

    I took your council and came to ruin,
    Leave me to myself,
    Oh, leave me to myself

    Oh, I was born to live without you,
    But I'm never gonna' understand,
    Never understand

    Oh, I was born to live without you,
    But I'm never gonna' understand,
    Never understand

    Hold me in your everlasting arms,
    Looked up, full of fear,
    Trapped beneath the chandelier that's going down

    I thought it over and drew the Curtain,
    Leave me to myself,
    Leave me to myself

    I hummed the 'Désirée' as you played the hallelujah,
    Leave me to myself,
    Oh, leave me to myself

    If you've been made to serve a master,
    You'd be frightened by the open-hand,
    Frightened by the hand

    Could I be made to serve a master,
    When I'm never gonna' understand,
    Never Understand?

    Hold me in your everlasting arms,
    Looked up, full of fear,
    Trapped beneath the chandelier that's going down

    Hold me in your everlasting arms,
    Looked up, full of fear,
    Trapped beneath the chandelier that's going down

    Hold me in your everlasting arms
