Don't Tie My Hands

Long-lost, gone
I can tell by the way you carry on
And it's now I see
After all of this time what it's done to me
Can't you see? I can't go free
If you make me watch you cry one more time

Once more I walk away, once more I hear you say
Once more please try to stay, once more I may
Don't tie my hands, don't lock that door
Don't make me stand for this love anymore
Please let me leave, don't start making that scene
Don't crush me in between

No one I wanted more
I wanted to love, to be mine
Now it turns out I have to say goodbye
And I don't see why
I should have to watch you cry one more time


Commentary
The version of "Demos and Lost Albums" is longer and has these lyrics:
Long-lost, gone
I can tell by the way that you carry on
And it's now I see
After all of this time what it's done to me
Can't you see? I can't go free
If you make me watch you cry one more time

Once more I walk away, once more I hear you say
Once more please try to stay, once more I may
Don't tie my hands, don't lock that door
Don't make me stand for this love anymore
Please let me leave, don't start making that scene
Don't crush me in between

Stay strong now
If you keep it in mind, you'll pull through somehow
For it has to be
You'll get out of the habit of loving me
Can't you see? I can't go free
If you make me watch you cry one more time

Once more you say I should
Once more you know I would
Once more it's just no good
Once more I could
Don't tie my hands, don't lock that door
Don't make me stand for this love anymore
Please let me leave, don't start making that scene
Don't crush me in between

No one I wanted more
I wanted to love, to be mine
Now it turns out I have to say goodbye
And I don't see why
I should have to watch you cry one more time

Once more I walk away, once more I hear you say
Once more please try to stay, once more I may
Don't tie my hands, don't lock that door
Don't make me stand for this love anymore
Please let me leave, don't start making that scene
Don't crush me in between

Don't tie my hands, don't lock that door
Don't make me stand for this love anymore
Please let me leave, don't start making that scene
Don't crush me in between
