I left and I left it all behind
I left you
I know that I never really really let you go
but oh, I’ve been trying

back then we could not have understood
the way love worked
then we had only our two hearts
to judge our love by
and oh, how we judged it then

as we struck out into foreign places
tried ourselves against the masses
judged our lives by others’ glances
and by our own fear

since then I’ve been looking long and hard
to find the answers
to the questions we could never
dare to ask then
how I wish we had asked them

as we struck out into foreign places
tried ourselves against the masses
judged our lives by others’ glances
and by our own fear

by our own fear
we were walking down a path of darkness
by our own fear
we abandoned those we loved
by our own fear
we left the road that led to freedom
by our own fear...

I left and I left it all behind
I left my heart there
and I’ll never get it back until I face you
and the love we left behind
we left our hearts there
and we’ll never get them back

until we strike out into foreign places
try ourselves against the masses
don’t judge our lives by others’ glances
or by our own fear

I left and I left it all behind
I left my heart there
and I’ll never get it back
until I face you...
