lyrics

you took it all away
all the pain i didn’t want
took it all away
replaced it
caught me in your numbers
you made me slumber
you took it all away
took it all away
the pain I suffered each day
you took it all away
mathematics are so precise
the feeling is priceless

you took it all away
you took it all away
you took it all away
took it all away
you took it all away
i’ve got nothing left to say
you took it all away
you took it all away

one two three four
am I just a number?
gatefold cardboard cookie cutter?
surrogate for the one who doesn’t love you
sure that i will be your number two?
that ain’t me, no that ain’t me
i don’t want to be
puppet sitting on the side
third wheel on your rocky ride
you have the fun
while I abide
and take it in stride

you took it all away
you took it all away
i’m so grateful
you took it all away
i can’t ever repay you
for taking it all away
you made it worthwhile
by taking it all away
took it all away
by taking it all away
