She left a book for them to read
About the men she thought they could be
But I'm not all that, my sins gainst my friends
Have been done in the name of fun
The price that they've paid for the trouble I've made
It's been swift and it's been everyone

Don't let me in
Don't let me out
Don't set me free
Don't blame yourself
Don't let me in
Don't let me out
Don't let me in
Don't let me out

The honour I felt as a boy is gone
These toys love back and they're easily cracked
In the attic in the afternoon sun
And I am like that, my sins 'gainst my loves
has been loving the nights I'm alone
The price that they've paid for the nights that they've stayed
It's been swift and it's been everyone

I won't let you in
I won't let you in
I won't let you in
So don't blame yourself
I won't let you in
I won't let you in
I won't let you in
I won't let you out

But Soon, oh so soon, you'll be gone
I release you
If numbers on our phones disappear
Not an issue
My voice in your ear disappears;
Not an issue
Your eyes fade green to gray
I release you
I release you
I release you

Don't let me in
Don't let me out
Don't set me free
Don't blame yourself
Don't let me in
Don't let me out
Don't let me in
Don't let me out

Soon, oh so soon, you'll be gone
I release you

    General Commentit's taken a while but this song's really grown on me. obviously about someone who's sewn some reckless seeds that he's reaping now.
