Lyrics


Don't pack the car, just get in
what a wonderful place this could've been
You wouldn't want it any other way (she wants you to stay)
to start again

We have loved, we have lost - now we'll tally up our costs
You see, the wind will dance away the branch that is not dead
We can't talk this out in a hurry, see the flames in the final fury
where forgiveness lies untouched under the covers of our bed

I should leave - I don't think I can stand it
I believe - you never would demand it
I can see all the lines drawn in the sand yet I don't recall ever feeling

And I insist - there's so little we know
Now I've been stripped - see me standing alone
And this life I've missed - is like an unlit road
And I've been tipped - by your porchlight (its cold)

Will we pass the test - will we hear that starting gun?
Life's a crashing jet - when it comes undone
And I know things can't ever stay the same
why don't you hurt someone else for a change?

I should leave - I don't think I can stand it
I believe - you never would demand it
I can see all the lines drawn in the sand yet
I don't recall ever feeling
Why don't you love me, save me from myself?
Need me, say there's no one else?
Hold me, fight away the rest?
I won't be your second best

And if you're gonna to say goodbye to it all
do it with a kiss, not a clenched up fist
Give me one more minute - I have to get this right
'cause this is my 'sorry' - it's my 'thank you'
it's my 'good luck with your life'

Why don't you love me, save me from myself?
Need me, say there's no one else?
Hold me, fight away the rest?
I won't be your second best
