He’ll kill you if he catches you here
I have to send you away, my dear
And make him believe it for real
If he doubts me then what he will feel
Will lead him to trouble, will lead him to harm
And I can’t take the chance so I pull the alarm
And ring all the bells he hates to abide
I’m doing this to keep you alive
But he won’t understand and he won’t do
Anything that I tell him to
Makes it more difficult than it has to be
Just leave, dear God, if you love me
But he shatters the glass just so I know
That he’ll be waiting if I let go.
