Do your dance and hope someones watching
I hope that their eyes set you free
Though your freedom is my prison
Your happiness my enemy
Stake your claim and hit the city
Neon street lights are free
Though they'll cost your soul a fortune

That's less than you've taken from me
Yeah
That's less than you've taken from me
Yeah
That's less than you've taken from

All the post cards and the letters
All the boxes of memories
Take to flames like wooden hearts
The ash is no good to me
You are the single lonely magpie
At the side of the highway
I say good day
Salute to your feathers
As you're pecking out the maggots and flies of the roadkill
I am stood still

And this is now goodbye
Yeah
This is now goodbye
Yeah

I was hoping one day
I could be myself again
Slip my ankles from your shackles
Leave you holding only chains

When the dust has settled
All the anger and the blame
Packed away in cardboard boxes
I'll be ready for the change

I will run my fingers
Through the waters of our past
And disturb the old reflections
Nothing good could ever last

Like those childhood summers
The ones we thought would never end
'Til the winter froze our senses
We could no longer pretend

So I'll start pretending
We could ever make ammends
Our promises are best forgotten
We could never be best friends

I was hoping one day
I could be myself again
Slip my ankles from your shackles
Leave you holding only chains
