I know the time to leave has come
I've found an open door
A false sense of freedom
in a jail I must explore

Because whenever I'm gone the strain is lighter
And when I return our eyes are brighter still
But with everyday we drift away
Young love can't fill the sky above
Whenever I'm gone I'm all alone

I never knew that happiness
and sadness were the same
I never knew that love was hate
and right was wrong to blame

Because whenever I'm gone the strain is lighter
And when I return our eyes are brighter still
But with everyday we drift away
Young love can't fill the sky above
Whenever I'm gone I'm all alone

I raise my eyes up to a world
(with you or without you)
And I see nothing there at all

Because whenever I'm gone the strain is lighter
And when I return our eyes are brighter still
But with everyday we drift away
Young love can't fill the sky above
Whenever I'm gone I'm all alone
