I took your counsel and came to ruin
Leave me to myself, leave me to myself
I took your counsel and came to ruin
Leave me to myself, leave me to myself

Oh, I was made to live without you
But I’m never gonna understand, never understand
Oh, I was born to live without you
But I’m never gonna understand, never understand

Hold me
In your everlasting arms
Looked up, full of fear
Trapped beneath a chandelier that’s going down

I thought it over and drew the curtain
Leave me to my cell, leave me to my cell
I hummed the dies irae as you played the hallelujah
Leave me to my cell, don’t leave me in my cell

If you’d been made to serve a master
You’d be frightened by the open hand, frightened by the hand
Could I be made to serve a master?
Well, I’m never gonna understand, never understand

Hold me
In your everlasting arms
Looked up, full of fear
I was trapped beneath a chandelier that’s going down

Hold me
In your everlasting arms
Looked up, full of fear
I was trapped beneath a chandelier that’s going down

Hold me
In your everlasting arms
