  • I had this thing to call my own
    Just one slip and it was gone

    A minor flaw and then it fell
    I brought this house down on myself

    I didn't know just what I'd done

    I didn't know just what I'd done

    I don't remember anymore what I used to be
    Where is the quiet piece of home where I could breathe?

    Just like a razor to my soul when I'm alone
    Oh, I had this thing to call my own

    I'm so confused, I cannot see
    This wave of guilt is drowing me

    It feels like blood is on my hands
    I'd give it all for a second chance

    I still don't know just what I've done
    I still don't know just what I've done

    I don't remember anymore what I used to be
    There was a fire burning strong inside of me

    Just like the soothing loving warmth of summer sun

    Oh, I had this thing to call my own
    I had this thing to call my own
    I had this thing to call my own

    I never meant to let you go
    I never meant to let you go
    I never meant to let you go
    I never meant to let you go
    To let you go, oh Writer/s: JAMES GERARD MCDERMOTT, SVEIN BERGE, TORBJORN BRUNDTLAND
