lyrics

take back the distance, i'll never move
take back the logic, i have to prove
take back the furniture left in the room

take back the silence, i'll always hear
take back the tantrum,
i'll be sincere
take back the miserable parts of the year

cos i cant keep on loving you this much
it's of out question
so just that the ransom
cos i cant keep on wanting you so badly
based on assumption
that you're here for the ransom

take the confusion, leave it aside.
take all the effort, i never tried
take back the memory
frozen and dried

take all the images, only you own
take the illusion 'if only i'd known'
take back the bad seed now overgrown

cos i cant keep on loving you this much
it's of out question
so just that the ransom
cos i cant keep on wanting you so badly
based on assumption
that you're here for the ransom

and you march until the heels cut through the soles of our shoes
and we'd argue until our faces turned blue
somehow we'll slowly lose our direction
abandoning the truth, on lonely paths we choose

cos i cant keep on loving you this much
it's of out question
so just that the ransom
cos i cant keep on wanting you so badly
based on assumption
so just that the ransom
