This track was developed and recorded in the framework of BANDIT's 'Ghent for Music' project in cooperation with Moonbeat Studio.

Leave it speaks to the experience of living in a world that doesn't always feel ours, of being powerless in the face of love and loss, power and weakness; but speaking up nonetheless.

lyrics

Lyrics:

Leave it to the man to fight the truth
Like any other day he'll come for you
Like every other day he'll close the door
'Till you can feel the moonlight no more
Feel it no more

Says he knows me so well
Truth is so lost, he can't tell
Thinks he means so well
But I just gotta see it, I just gotta see it

Walk along and love in vain
Walk so far through the last train
In the big black city, in the small town
We can't find no limits, they're not around
They're not around

Says he knows me so well
Truth is so lost, he can't tell
Thinks he means so well
But I just gotta see it, I just gotta see it

Leave it to the man to wake up the fire
Leave it to the man to watch me closer, 'cause this' not over
Leave it to his dance, to confuse the liars, sweet-talk buyers
Leave it to the man to go and make me say, goodbye to you one day

Like every other life he lost a love
His heart in his hand he rose above
But all the magnificence in the world
It couldn't, it couldn't replace that girl

Says he knows me so well
Truth is so lost, he can't tell
Thinks he means so well
But I just gotta see it, I just gotta see it

Leave it to the man to wake up the fire
Leave it to the man to watch me closer, 'cause this' not over
Leave it, to confuse the liars, sweet-talk buyers
Leave it to the man to go and make me say, goodbye to you one day
