lyrics

(lyrics)

Everything's going to be all right
Let's give it a rest, call it a night
"Leave it up to me,
I can't wait for you to see"

Never before, never again
I won't follow you to the bitter end
"Leave it up to me-" no,
I can't take you seriously

And you want to buy just a little more time
Well you've worn my patience out this time

It's up to me
I can see it in your eyes again
Up to me
I can hear it, hear it in your lies my friend
You let me down again

Straight from the heart you say it comes
I want to believe but you leave me numb
"Leave it up to me" are you still reassuring me

Took a long time to see the game
I think I know you by a different name
"Leave it up to me-" no,
I can't take you seriously

And you're trying to buy just a little more time
Well I'm not feeling so free with mine
Free with mine
Free with mine

It's up to me
I can see it in your eyes again
Up to me
I can hear it, hear it in your lies my friend
You let me down again
You let me down again
