lyrics

Don't go to sleep
Don't want to stay
Don't go down there
It's not the way

Don't go to sleep
Don't want to stay
Don't go down there
It's not the way

It's not the way

I've been there before
I know where you live
I like to visit
Don't want to be a permanent resident

It's drafty and cold
I ache in my bones
No place to grow old
Don't want to be a permanent resident

I am leaving
Let me go
Don't want to stay here.... no more

Can't live this way
from dark day to day
Into the shadows
Don't want to be a permanent resident

No sign of light
no end in sight
A world veiled in nightfall
Don't want to be a permanent resident

I am leaving
Let me go
Don't want to stay here....

I am leaving
Let me go
Don't want to stay here.... no more


Don't go to sleep
Don't want to stay
Don't go down there
It's not the way

Don't go to sleep
Don't want to stay
Don't go down there
It's not the way

It's not the way
