LYRICS

  • Official

Listen… did you hear that sound
Somebody’s walking close behind me
I hear their footsteps on the ground

Looking… then I turned around
He stopped advancing in his footsteps
He lifted up his head and frowned

One last time
I want to feel you near me
Together as one

One last time
A hand to heal your pain
Take it and run

So I take his cue
I start to walk away
But he keeps calling out behind me
Like a voice of yesterday

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

I remember you
I remember you
My god your face is so familiar
I thought you’d never go away

One last time
No point pretending anymore
I found true love (six feet below)

Just one time
I want to hold your soul with
My bare hands and squeeze

So I cupped my hands
And I took his face
I said you gotta lighten up boy
Some things in life you must erase

Listen… did you hear that sound
Somebody’s walking close behind me
I hear their footsteps on the ground

Looking… then I turned around
He stopped advancing in his footsteps
He lifted up his head and frowned

One last time (ah, a-a-ah)
I want to feel you near me (a-a-a-ah)
Together as one (a-a-a-ah)

One last time (ah, a-a-ah)
A hand to heal your pain (a-a-a-ah)
Take it and run (a-a-a-ah)

So I take his cue
I start to walk away
But he keeps calling up behind me
Like a voice of yesterday

aaaaaaaa-aah ah
Loosen the noose up
Loosen the noose up
aaaaaaaa-aah
Loosen the noose
Loosen the noose

I remember you (I remember, I remember)
I remember you (I remember)
My god your face is so familiar (so familiar, so familiar)
I thought you’d never go away (I remember)

One last time (ah, a-a-ah)
No point pretending anymore (a-a-a-ah)
I found true love (a-a-a-ah)
Six feet below

Just one time (ah, a-a-ah)
I want to hold your soul (a-a-a-ah)
With my bare hands (a-a-a)
And squeeze

So I cupped my hands (u-u-uh, u-u-uh)
And I took his face (u-u-uh, u-u-uh)
I said you gotta lighten up boy (u-u-uh, u-u-uh)
Some things in life you must erase (u-u-uh)

aaaaaaaa-aah ah
Loosen the noose up
Loosen the noose up
aaaaaaaa-aah
Loosen the noose
Loosen the noose
