Lyrics

Let the right one in
Let the old dreams die
Let the wrong ones go
They cannot, they cannot

They cannot do
What you want them to

Let the right one in
Let the old dreams die
Let the wrong ones go
They do not, they do not

They do not see
What you want them to

Let the right one in
Let the old games fade
Put the tricks and schemes
For good, away

I will advise
Until my mouth dries
I will advise you to
Let the right one
Slip in
Slip in
Slip in

And when at last it does
I'd say you were within your rights
To bite the right one and say:
 "What kept you so long?
 What kept you so long?"
