I watched you steal away
A man's best years
With the drumming of his fingers
And the kicking of his heels

I watched you put away
Your sweetest sins
I watched tempters satisfy
With the sweetest taste of wasted time

Don't let me disappear
Don't let me fall apart
Don't lead me to the wayside
Just don't let me go
Don't let me fade away

I watched him travel down
A steady road
With no milestones
Just a gentle slope

Soft underfoot, no sudden turns
Warn of sliding down that safe and sound
But not too familiar road
This is all too familiar

Don't let me disappear
Don't let me fall apart
Don't lead me to the wayside
Just don't let me go
Don't let me fade away

Don't let me disappear
Don't lead me to the wayside
Anything or not a thing will do

I watched you steal away
A man's best years
With the drumming of his fingers
And the kicking of his heels

Without a twinkle in his eye
I watched him beg and plead
With moving lips and bended knees
Just to have you back

Don't let me disappear
Don't let me fall apart
Don't lead me to the wayside
Just don't let me go
Don't let me fade away

Don't let me disappear
Don't lead me to the wayside
Anything or not a thing will do

Be numb my heart
Oh, nothingness
Be numb my heart
Oh, nothingness

Don't let me disappear
Don't let me fall apart
Don't lead me to the wayside
Just don't let me go

Don't let me disappear
Don't let me fall apart
Don't lead me to the wayside
Just don't let me go
Don't let me fade away

Don't let me disappear
Don't lead me to the wayside
Anything or not a thing will do

    General CommentI watched you steal away
    A man’s best years
    With the drumming of his fingers
    With the kicking of his heels

    I watched you put away
    Your sweetest sins
    I watched tempters satisfied
    With the sweet taste
    Of wasted time

    Don’t let me disappear
    Don’t let me fall apart
    Don’t lead me to the wayside
    Just don’t let me go
    Don’t let me fade away

    I watched him travel down
    A steady road
    With no milestones
    Just a gentle slope

    Soft underfoot,
    No sudden turns to warn of sliding
    Down that safe and sound
    But all too familiar road
    This is all too familiar

    Don’t let me disappear
    Don’t let me fall apart
    Don’t lead me to the wayside
    Just don’t let me go
    Don’t let me fade away

    Just keep this off my mind
    Anything or not a thing will do

    I watched you steal away
    A man’s best years
    With the drumming of his fingers
    With the kicking of his heels

    Without the twinkle in his eye
    I watched him beg and plead with moving lips
    And bended knee
    Just to have you back

    Be numb my heart
    O’ nothingness

    Don’t let me disappear
    Don’t let me fall apart
    Don’t lead me to the wayside
    Just don’t let me go
    Don’t let me fade away

    They’ve got you wrapped around their fingers
    Because anything or not a thing will do
    (A dead fire in a cold room)
