Give It Back – Throw It All Away

This is the tenth song of my Something to Remind You project
GIVE IT BACK!

Open your eyes to a dancer on an empty stage
You tore apart her play page by page by page
The crowd is gone
She’s all alone
With nowhere to call home

Another light shines on a screen behind your eyes
Every time you spark that flame your candle slowly dies
An empty room
A silent tomb
Is nowhere to call home

If her life is poetry
She’s verses with no melody
Your words – a waste of air
So close but never there
One day you’re gonna pay
For you threw it all away

Pain can be a pleasure but what if that was you?
Not a chance to stand the suffering that you put her through
An icy cave
A lonely place
Is nowhere to call home

If her life is poetry
She’s verses with no melody
Your words – a waste of air
So close but never there
One day you’re gonna pay
For you threw it all away

Give it back
Give it back
Give it back
Give it back
For you threw it all away

Give it back
Give it back
Give it back
Give it back
For you threw her far away

She cried for what has happened, for that different light
You lost your fucking mind to let her out of sight
An endless night
Of wrong or right
Is nowhere to call home

If her life is poetry
She’s verses with no melody
Your words – a waste of air
So close but never there
One day you’re gonna pay
For you threw it all away

For you threw it all away
For you threw it all away
Can’t you see?
You should be crawling backwards on bleeding knees
For you threw it all away
For you threw it all away
There’s no way back
