“Leave Me to Love” Imogen Heap

Complications, more so I can say
Promises and deadlines make it hard to stay away
All these strings are attaching to me
And I can’t find the scissors

I’ll untangle them, we’re back in a knot
I can’t remember where I was, I forgot
Knitting it all, these holes that I need
To crawl through a brick wall
Is hard to say the least

Where’s that thought that thought uncomplicated things?
Where’s that peace of mind, that peace that made it easy?
Where’s that simple day that simply made it nice to be in?
Where did it go? Where did it go? Where did it go?

I got you a murky light, tell me what can you see?
A huge cloud of shit, hanging over me
Can you blow it all somewhere else?
It’s making it hell to distinguish myself
Tired of the tyrants who only think they’re the bee’s knees
Pissed with their patience, they constantly agree
“Yes sir, yes sir, three hundred bags full”
It’s easier to say yes than to say no to a fool

Where’s that thought that thought uncomplicated things?
Where’s that peace of mind, that peace that made it easy?
Where’s that simple day that simply made it nice to be in?
Where did it go? Where did it go? Where did it go?

Cover me in cyanide
Cover me in ink
Cover me in formaldehyde
And leave me here to think
Cover me in carpet
Cover me in tile
Cover me in everything and put me in a file

Strip me bare, don’t let me breathe
Strip me to my skin
Strip me so you can watch me clean off
All these things I’ve been
Strip me naked of these walls
Strip me of my rules
Strip me, boy and see how small I am without you

Inseminate the good now
Inseminate the pure
Inseminate all the shit that I’ve forgotten how to whore
Inseminate the natural
Inseminate the dirt
Inseminate the ineffectual
And leave me here to love

Leave me here to love
