lyrics

Couldn't believe that I had to go
You wanted me but you would not
Building a life
I couldn't let you alone
Yip yip yip yip yip
I plant some trees down into the grove
You pick the leaves and you burn them
Building a lie
It was the wrong season grown
Yip yip yip yip yip

You don't tell me to go
I know when I do know
I don't know when you lie
I don't know when you right at all, at all

How life is full of clowns
With their smiles upside down
We won but lost the fight
Now violence is alright downtown
What now?

We climb with ease up the red brick row
To see the sky like a curtain
Liftin a glow
And spit at people below
Yip yip yip yip yip yip

I had a reason, a firework show
Love has no season it
Bursts into life
Gives you no choice to be sold
Yip yip yip yip yip yip

Well you better believe that I had to go

You don't tell me to go
I know when I do know
I don't know when you lied
I don't know when you right at all
At all

Cause love is not a game
To later on explain
I loved you til I died
I loved you til my bones were smoke
We hope you choice

And if you didn't believe that I had to go
Well you better believe that I took it slow
To decide
