  • Like a ghost don't need a key
    Your best friend I've come to be
    Please don't think of getting up for me
    You don't even need to speak

    When I've been here for just one day
    You'll already miss me if I go away
    So close the blinds and shut the door
    You won't need other friends anymore
    Oh don't leave home, oh don't leave home

    And if you're cold, I'll keep you warm
    If you're low, just hold on
    'Cause I will be your safety
    Oh, don't leave home

    And I arrived when you were weak
    I'll make you weaker, like a child
    Now all your love you give to me
    When your heart is all I need
    Oh don't leave home, oh don't leave home

    And if you're cold, I'll keep you warm
    And if you're low, just hold on
    'Cause I will be your safety
    Oh, don't leave home

    Oh how quiet, quiet the world can be
    When it's just you and little me
    Everything is clear, and everything is new
    So you won't be leaving, will you?

    And if you're cold, I'll keep you warm
    And if you're low, just hold on
    'Cause I will be your safety
    Oh, don't leave home
    'Cause I will be your safety
    And I will be your safety
    I will be your safety
    Oh, don't leave home Writer/s: Dido Armstrong, Rollo Armstrong

  • Miriam from Boston, MaI always adored this song. It's serious, with a very spooky edge to it, without being creepy. It's very orginal and unique, althrough given the fact that this IS Dido, perhaps that is a given.
