And I begin,
In early moments
No easy moments
The three of us are sitting up till dawn
There are no outskirts
To New York City
If i'm leaving

Leave me gone
I only ask you when
Time wont tell you to
Leave me gone
I only ask you when
Time tells you to stop

Stop, the daylight
Coming past the ending
Like a mixture of everyone in the world
We're all watching a film
Shown on gravestones
Of us leaving

And the journey starts
Only as the journeys end
And finished it remains
And finished it remains...

Leave me gone
I wont ask you with
Time wont tell you to
Leave me gone

I wont ask you with
Time wont tell you to
Leave me gone

    General Commentapologies, it should be "there are no outskirts, to New York City".

    General CommentWow an amzing song can't believe not many comments! One of my fave Idlewold songs though the new album isn't as good as their old stuff in my opinion.
    I get the feeling this song is about death

    "Leave me gone
    I only ask you when
    Time wont tell you to
    Leave me gone
    I only ask you when
    Time tells you to stop"

    I think this is saying "once i'm gone just let me go" sort of thing. Mabe from the point of view of a ghost looking back on their time on Earth. Well that's my interpretation of this song when i hear it
