Love Has left The Room

  • The party is over
    But I can't get sober
    Obsession is towing me
    Deep down down

    Love has left the room
    It fled out the back door
    When all that I asked for
    Was forever more
    Or a real bye bye
    It didn't say bye bye

    And I'll let go if you just tell me
    Give back the pieces of dreams
    That you sell me
    They trick my mind

    I'll let go if you just let me
    I will forget you
    If you will forget me
    I'll slip your mind
    I will slip your mind

    Tie me to the mast
    Cast me in irons
    I hear the sirens
    They sing of desire
    The fatal kind

    This love is my last
    My final possession
    Most violent caress
    It's a beautiful mess
    And it's deep down down
    It's really deep down down

    And I'll let go if you just tell me
    Give back the pieces of dreams
    That you sell me
    They trick my mind

    I'll let go if you just let me
    I will forget you
    If you will forget me
    I'll slip your mind
    I will slip your mind

    Once it settles down
    And the fire has burned out
    What d'you think you'll find
    Poking through the embers
    Memories that sting,
    Little splinters of your doubt
    Things that you can live without

    So why die?
    Give back the pieces of dreams
    That you sell me
    And trick my mind

    I'll let go if you just let me
    I will forget you
    If you will forget me
    I'll slip your mind
    I will slip your mind Writer/s: NATHAN PETER LARSON, NICLAS PATRIK FRISK, NINA PERSSON
