If you twist and turn away
If I could, yes I would
Let it go
If I could throw this lifeless lifeline to the wind
See you walk, walk away
And through the rain
And through the flame
If I could through myself
See you break, break away
And to the day
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
To let it go
To let it go

I'm wide awake
I'm not sleeping

Tell you what I would say
Bruised silken sky and burning flag

If I could, you know I would, if I could, I would

Revelation in temptation
Let it go
And so fade away
And so fade away
Oh now, and so to fade away
I'm wide awake
Wide awake
Oh, no, no, no
