Siv Jakobsen – To Leave You Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I have built myself a fortress
Where I’ve been hiding
Where I’ve been safe, sound
But now you’ve dug yourself a hollow in my garden
So you can swim in darkness
And I’ve placed myself beside it
To hold your hand if you come out, if you come out

[Chorus]
I don’t know for who I’m longing
Is it you or your reflection in my mind?
But I know now, what I am hoping for
Building cages ’round my chest to leave you out
To leave you, to leave

[Verse 2]
I must build myself a new house
With a fence and alarms
Round the edge so you can’t come

I’ll have torches in the ceilings
So I can swim in visions
Of you with your inside out
Naked and screaming and fighting me, frightening me

[Chorus]
I don’t know for who I’m longing
Is it you or your reflection in my mind?
But I know now, what I am hoping for
Building cages round my chest to leave you out
To leave you, to leave

I don’t know for who I’m longing
Is it you or your reflection in my mind?
But I know now, what I am hoping for
I’m building cages round my chest to leave you out
To leave you, to leave
