The Love You're Given

  • Take all the love you're given
    Through the gap in the wall
    Seal it tight with the light blue ribbon
    Then unlock the door
    But your ego won't let you love
    And your fear is your downfall
    If you won't take the love you're given
    Then at least let me go

    Please let me go
    Please let me go
    Please let me go
    Please let me go
    Please let me go
    Please let me go

    I've been trying to give you my love
    But you won't let me, won't let me
    I've been trying to give you some space
    But you won't let me, won't let me
    I've been trying to save you the trouble
    But you won't let me, won't let me
    I've been trying to give you my love

    Don't feed the solace within you
    And allow it to grow
    'Cause when the leaves, the blossom become you
    They'll turn black and they'll fall

    I promise if you're gonna lock me out
    I will stand as your ghost
    If you take the love you're given
    I will leave you alone
    I will leave you alone
    I will leave you alone

    I've been trying to give you my love
    But you won't let me, won't let me
    I've been trying to give you some space
    But you won't let me, won't let me
    I've been trying to save you the trouble
    But you won't let me, won't let me
    I've been trying to give you my love
    But you won't let me, won't let me

    I've been trying to give you my love
    But you won't let me, won't let me
    I've been trying to give you some space
    But you won't let me, won't let me
    I've been trying to save you the trouble
    But you won't let me, won't let me
    I've been trying to give you my love
    But you won't let me, won't let me
    (Won't let me)

    I've been trying to give you my love
    But you won't let me, won't let me
    I've been trying to give you some space
    But you won't let me, won't let me
    I've been trying to save you the trouble
    But you won't let me, won't let me
    I've been trying to give you my love
    But you won't let me, won't let me
