Yes - Leave It Lyrics




I can feel no sense of measure
No illusions as we take
Refuge in young man's pleasure
Breaking down the dreams we make
Real

One down one to go
Another town and one more show
Downtown they're giving away
But she never came back

No phone can take your place
You know what I mean
We have the same intrigue
As a court of kings

Ah leave it
Ah leave it
Two down there you go
McArthur Park in the driving snow
Uptown they're digging it out
Better lay your claim

Get home you're not alone
You just broke out of the danger zone
Be there to show your face
On another dreamy day

Ah leave it
Ah leave it

Goodbye goodbye goodbye bad
Hello hello heaven

Goodbye goodbye goodbye bad
Hello hello heaven
Ah leave it

Ah leave it

I can feel no sense of measure
No illusions as we take
Refuge in young man's pleasure
Breaking down the dreams we make
Real

Ah leave it
Ah leave it

Goodbye goodbye goodbye bad
Hello hello heaven

Goodbye goodbye goodbye bad
Hello hello heaven

One down one to go
Another town and one more show

One down one to go
Another town and one more show
Ah leave it

Ah leave it

Ah leave it
Goodbye goodbye goodbye bad
Hello hello heaven

Goodbye goodbye goodbye bad

Leave it

  7. onthee brink

    Half the budget on this video was spent on renting the suits.

  8. Gary McAleer

    This rendition lacks the audio quality and engineering balance of the CD version. Get the CD.

  9. Gabriel Garcia

    I always wonder, what this song is about,, what does it mean??

  10. רוברט ויינגר

    Those harmony vocals are simply amazing, the track is from the album 90125 one off the best rock albums of the eighties

  11. Alfredo Noyola

    I remember the video was not upside down....

  12. LifeThroughAutisticEyes

    Reminds me of Once In A Lifetime By Talking Heads

  13. Joel Caetano

    Amo Yes!

  14. John Brown

    I have no idea why this song didn't do better on the charts.

  15. Robbie Landrey

    I've been a Yes fan since I was in junior high (2009-2010) My Dad's probably been a fan since he was in junior high too. But that was waaaay back in the early 60s and 70s!

  16. Othniel Poole

    simple video but I always see something new in it when I see

  17. Richard James

    I ♡ Art of Noise

  18. Richard James

    Why is a phone a purple dot and a laptop an orange dot?

  28. Luy Conti

  31. Antonio Vilarim

    alguem setembr 2019.🎸🎸🎸🎸👍👍👍✌✌

  32. bukster1

    On that same music video episode that played this video was another one which was the farewell video for the Bay City Rollers. So when the announcer said they were playing a farewell video and this video has the lyrics, "bye bye band", I thought this must be the Bay City Rollers video. So I've thought for decades that this was the wrong band.

  33. Tony42898

    Is this what Squire's very last acid trip was like?

    Emmanuel Emmanuel

    😁😂🤣🎶🎵✌️🤘

  34. Oggatha Christie

    A great, kickass song that deserved a _much_ better music video concept.

    CM Rosary

    Context, context ... Bear in mind that at almost exactly the same time as this video was produced, we were subjected to _TRON._

    Oggatha Christie

    I hear you but I wish they got the same crew that did the vid
    for 'Owner of a Lonely Heart' at least. _That_ was a great video!

    Sailor Amarok

    Very hard to believe that the "Leave It" video was done by Godley & Creme, who had done quite a few famous and groundbreaking videos at that time for artists like Visage ("Fade To Grey"), Duran Duran ("Girls On Film"), Herbie Hancock ("Rockit") or The Police ("Every Breath You Take").

  35. RainbowDreams30

    This song is the fucking ish

  36. mileshedgehog

    This is the version they played on Friday Night Videos (for those of is with parents too cheap to get cable 🤣). Still funky ass song and captivating video lol esp starting at 3:16 🤣

  37. Square Candy Design

    surprised the "yesofficial" channel version of this has such bad interlacing.

  38. Warhawkbeyond2040

    Back when MTV was actually MTV and played real music

  39. strxwberry stay

    WHOS MANS IS THIS

  40. Bella Emanuele

    This is one of my favorite songs of all time :)

    Robert Schalk

    Mine too, Beautiful

  41. Shawn Hellion

    Same thing with a flock of seagulls,there was a better version of I ran so far away video,it was the five minute version, can't find it on YouTube

  42. Martin S

    Memories

  43. hw d

    新版本,发个这视频,是啥意思呀

  44. krissyrose14

    Just realized this mix is a little different from the album version. :) Certain instrument parts are more emphasized in this one over what's in the LP cut. :)

  45. Southsideman

    Great song; lame video.

  46. Mike Smith

    How about Gates of Delerium

  47. Marty Harris

    When this video came out on MTV it created quite a buzz because it was so unique and out of the box. Now a third grader could make this in 15 minutes on a smart phone. After all these years though its still a cool video and a great song!

  48. Victor Ortiz

    Very underrated band!!!!

  49. Victor Ortiz

    I always loved this song especially the drums & harmony!

  50. Jake Gam

    "🎶Ooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhh CLEAVAGE!🎵"

  51. Angela Baiers

    Seeing them tonight! Cannot wait!!!

  52. Jacob Flores

    I've only seen this one time...in 1985

  53. Fred Geno

    Well written song....is anyone listening?

  54. MrTormented75

    Love this song & the video. Sometimes you just gotta' leave it, or him/her, them. Can just imagine myself at a party back then loving life!

  55. cigoLxeL

    Me, hearing this on a store Muzak system for the first time: "Hm, it's obviously an 80's song, but it sounds a little too prog-rock to have come from an 80's band. I wonder if it's..."

    **

    Me: "Yes, it's Yes! How'd I miss this one for so long a time?!"

  56. TheWicklunds25

    What made this song so good in my opinion is the bass playing and the editing and remastering. A talented band.

  57. Kevin Krans

  58. /home/gligar13

    halycon on and on

  59. Chris Story

    I remember MTV played different versions of this video on April Fools Day with different fake title card on lower left screen.

  60. Symfonio Petalon

    This reminds me of the Sega cd

  61. badfishcrew

    great music, great band.. i'm now amused to think that at the time, this video was probably a massive breakthrough in digital technology

  62. Revi0li

    Fever dream shit

  63. Oliva Gina

    I need the JoJos and friends singing this song.

  64. Sean L

    Remember the fascinating hour long documentary on "The Making of..." because it was so high tech? LOL

  65. Leandro Buk

    Editor: - Hoy many visual effects do you want?
    *Yes* : - YES

  66. Les Blat

    Thank you to all the Yes men. Chris was Yes and the greatest bass player ever. Chris made it swing always.
    Think about it, in heaven Chris and Jimi jamming with Bob. Bet u Chris shows up late.

  67. Y Z

    This was a protest...Over being BANNED! The good CHRISTIAN FOLKS took offense to the video for OWNER OF A LONELY HEART because it depicted reincarnation (When he jumped off the building and turned into a bird , and flew away) ..and it got BANNED as religiously offensive...so they did this....on the next video...several versions...like..."OK...IS THIS CONSERVATIVE ENOUGH FOR YOU?"

  68. Tammy Nickelson

    Their voices are mind blowing one of my favorite bands!

  69. Rachelstorrersings

    One of my favorites ❤

  70. White Lion

    POSITIVE ADRENALIN PUMPIN ENERGY

    I can feel no sense of measure
    No illusions as we take
    Refuge in young man's pleasure
    Breaking down the dreams we make real

    One down one to go
    Another town and one more show
    Downtown they're giving away
    But she never came back

    No phone can take your place
    Do you know what I mean
    We have the same intrigue
    As a court of kings

    Ah leave it, ah leave it
    Dit, dit, dit, dit, dit, dit, dit
    Doot, doot, doot, doot, doot, doot, doot

    Two down there you go
    McArthur Park in the driving snow
    Uptown they're digging it out
    Better lay your claim

    Get home you're not alone
    You just broke out of the danger zone
    Be there to show your face
    On another dreamy day

    Ah leave it, ah leave it
    Dit, dit, dit, dit, dit, dit, dit
    Doot, doot, doot, doot, doot, doot, doot

    Goodbye, goodbye,…

  72. Michael Cox

    What an appropriately hideously awful video.

  73. Vann Jonquin

    I remember seeing this back then and thinking what a screwball video lol.. I was just a silly kid.

  74. Harley ROB Patriot

    Yes, sure did have a lot of great music!

  75. tea&terabytes

    This is my favorite 80s yes song

  76. Chris Hamilton

    This is all about Shea Patterson.com and an eternal message and offering he gave to the Negro!!!

  77. Faeron L.

    Me n the boys going through a paper shredder

  78. Galactic Scholar Consciousnesses

    The lyrics are prolific in the sense that it came out in 1983. The line "No phone can take your place...You know what I mean". THINK about it.🤔AND....it looks Trippy on your PHONE! (how ironic)

  79. gschneyer

    Weird how, at the time, this was cutting-edge effects. Today I can do it practically on my smartphone.

  80. Robert Mailhos

    Yes I cry when I hear this song 😪!!!!! does anyone else ???????

  81. snowpossum

    this video is hilarious.

  82. Dan Summers

    1:34 Why would they head-butt themselves in the groins like that? That had to hurt. :D

  83. Gavin Strawser

    Well, Y E S, but actually no

  84. Alex Dubler

    I love the quintet harmony! When you think that you wanna KEEP it, maybe it's time to.........

  85. Yossarian67

    Any other South Africans ever wonder if this is what Rabbitt would have sounded like if they had stayed together?

  86. Barry Osselborn

    THE BEST OF THE 80'S

  87. Michael Boyce

    MTV had a contest to see which version of this Video would be picked by the Viewers..Eventually,Version 12 was picked as one version was omitted Version 13.

  88. Mad Mike

    Rest In Peace: Chris Squire 1948--2015

    Thank You for inspiring so many of us to become musicians ourselves, through your creative works. "Leave It" is a complex rarity that, along with a handful of other truly versatile, eclectic songs, practically FORCED me to pick up a guitar & start learning

    Truly a "Top Lad" & a world-class international citizen. You will be sorely missed, sir

  89. Danny Hicks

    Man whyd there Bass player have to die while there still touring,guys one of the best bass pickers ever,and all around just a great elite melodic Bass master.Whol;e band is the shit though for sure.

  94. bozimmerman

    I'm having a hard deciding which video is worse: this one or Time Stand Still by Rush. They both beg you to cover your tv with a towel and just listen.

  95. Jesse H

    Wow. Thank you so much for sharing this. 😎👍⚔️

  96. Jeff sandrock

    A great flat earth song.

    Jeff sandrock
