Elvis

I’ll go away
I’ll go on my wordless way
Don’t say anything
Say nothing, just leave me.

I’ve been merely, an actor
In your painful play.
But I feel too much to stay.
Just cast me out.

[Pre chorus]
You can have the dishes
You can have the jacked up car.
And take the book on meditation
I’ll just take home what I brought,

[Chorus]
My, big painted velvet Elvis…

Well take it away
Take it all away
Don’t leave anything
Leave nothing, except me

’cause I’ve been sadly misinformed
I thought it mattered a little more than this
I wish I was a thousand miles away…

[Pre chorus/ chorus]

Well I’m frozen here
Caged in silence
It’s better that I
Regret these words
Than to stand aside
And watch your tragic
Storyline unfold…
Just let me go

[Pre chorus/ chorus]

Well you took my heart
And you took my soul
And you used me,
I’ve had plenty of that.
It gets harder and harder
And farther and farther
From what I need for me.
