Leave yourself alone

Not for nothing at all
Not for nothing did I call
Reason is, you’re often appalled
Hold on now John you never seemed cold
I thought you were in love
Then I guess that you’re not
Ah but then the first thing you wrote,
Was hold on now John, hold on now John now hold on

You don’t answer when I call
You don’t answer then
You don’t answer when I call
Leave yourself alone
Leave yourself alone

Cabbages and kings in your dreams
These are your dreams
Maybe they’re not quite what they seem
Hold on now John, the blame is undone.
Wash up the air, don’t drive that car
Never learn to play the guitar
And leave yourself alone, leave yourself alone
Leave yourself alone, and leave yourself alone

You don’t answer when I call
You don’t answer then
You don’t answer when I call
Leave yourself alone
Leave yourself alone

Sweeping up the ashes of rock
Sweeping up the ashes of roll
Years begin to take up their toll
Though not for some, you’ve never seemed cold

You don’t answer when I call
You don’t answer then
You don’t answer when I call
Leave yourself alone
Leave yourself alone
