tell me what do you do when you still get sad after you drink all night
after you find a cheap flight to where you swore you would be
for so many years after you knew you'd be dead, but you'd never make it through the night
now you're just a bitter man, and suddenly its happening again.
when you couldn't wait till the days got shorter but the nights they stayed long
when you spent all your time in my arms singing the same songs
when you kept rhythm with your heartbeat and I choked down the refrains
and the memory of simpler times got lost along the way
so were coughing out choruses cause i'm only honest when i sing
and i wanna tell you the truth darling, just don't believe a thing i say
don't go… just god, don't stay.
and i think i might be manic, but ill probably never sleep again
i could live off caffeine and nicotine like so many better men
and i swear if i could just fit into whatever mold that you melted
i think everything would get a little easier and the world would settle
but a lot of pressure to lay on you, fuck we both know you ain't no saint
you can sin as well as the rest of them, and love its getting late
so you should probably go before i say something that you'd regret
don't worry, ill call you tomorrow if i don't forget
and were coughing out choruses cause i'm only honest when i sing
and i wanna tell you the truth, darling, just don't believe a thing i say
don't go… just god don't stay.
