Leon Leaving the Table Liedtext

I’m leaving the table,

I’m out of the game.

I don’t know the people

in your picture frame.

If I ever loved you or no, no…

It’s a crying shame if I ever loved you,

if I knew your name.

You don’t need a lawyer,

I’m not making a claim.

You don’t need to surrender,

I’m not taking aim

I don’t need a lover, no, no,

the wretched beast is tame.

I don’t need a lover,

so blow out the flame.

There’s nobody missing,

there is no reward.

Little by little,

we’re cutting the cord.

We’re spending the treasure, oh, no, no,

that love cannot afford.

I know you can feel it,

the sweetness restored

I don’t need a reason

for what I became.

I’ve got these excuses,

They’re tired and lame.

I don’t need a pardon, no, no, no, no, no,

there’s no one left to blame.

I’m leaving the table,

I’m out of the game

I’m leaving the table,

I’m out of the game.
