lyrics

Please don’t turn the light on, if you’re going to leave. I don’t want my last memory to be your silhouette passing through a darkened door. So for my sake, won’t you kiss me once more so that I might remember you by the smell upon your neck and the way your hair tickles my forehead
and I know it sounds crazy, ‘cause you’ll be leaving me baby, but I gotta ask one thing, this one thing, I have to ask this one thing: Please be gentle as you walk away.

Don’t bother closing the door, I won’t need it anymore, I got nothing to protect or hide away. When you came into my life, it was an electrifying lightning strike and the thunder rumbled, kept us both up night and day. The years have gone by, we’ve struggled against a rising tide and somehow life has gotten in the way. When you came into my life it was an electrifying lightning strike the thunder rumbled, kept us both up night and day.
And that storm, it has subsided and it seems that you’ve decided on all those things I am too scared to say.

So please don’t turn the light on, if you’re going to leave. I don’t want my last memory to be your silhouette passing through a darkened door. So for my sake won’t you kiss me once more so that I might remember you by the smell upon your neck, and the way your hair tickles my forehead.
and I know it might sound crazy cause you’ll be leaving me baby, but I have to ask one thing, just this one thing. I have to ask this one thing:
Please be gentle as you walk away.
