Stay With Me

Come inside and keep me warm in the fading dawn.

When I walk through the horizon I am standing beside him.

We are slow dancing on a cloud.

I never felt so proud.

You are the one that I love

and I’m not afraid to say it out loud.

Don’t leave me when the sun goes down.

We are forever bound.

I want to keep you around

now that you’ve been found.

Stay with me, stay, stay, stay with me.

Don’t ever leave.

I won’t ever be able to sleep

if you don’t stay with me.

I don’t know how I got through

the loneliness I endured.

Don’t leave me when the sun goes down.

We are forever bound.

I want to keep you around

now that you’ve been found.

I hope you feel the same way about me

because if you don’t I will have to plead.

Stay with me, stay, stay, stay with me.

Don’t ever leave.

I won’t ever be able to sleep

if you don’t stay with me.

Stay with me, stay, stay, stay with me.

How Are You

I want to change my name,

want to move far away,

and want to leave all my troubles behind.

It’s depression.

Can’t you read all of the signs?

My constant companion,

can’t you leave me alone this time?

The pills don’t work at all.

Just hand out masks that wear a fake smile.

Don’t ask how are you

because I just might tell you the truth.

I feel like dying.

What’s the point in crying?

I don’t want to keep trying.

What’s the point in lying?

If you don’t want to know the truth

don’t ask me how are you.

Just kick yourself in the head.

Just let me lay in my bed.

My head keeps spinning.

Vertigo stop me spinning.

I keep hanging on to the walls

afraid I’m going to fall.

If you don’t want to know the truth

don’t ask me how are you.

Just kick yourself in the head.

Just let me lay in my bed.

How are you?

Let It Go

You’re out to hurt me for hurting you.

That was so long ago.

Why can’t you let it go?

I’ve told you I’m sorry.

Can’t we just go on living without the pain?

What do you want?

Do you want me slain in the midnight rain?

If you do I’ll take another train.

Let me off at the next stop.

Take me away from the piercing rain.

There’s a rainbow just out of my reach.

I’ll just sit here for a while

and reach deep down inside for a smile.

You’re silence hurts me

more than any words can say.

The deafening silence makes my head hurt

24 hours a day.

There isn’t a pain pill for the words you don’t say.

All I can do is pray.

You’re out to hurt me for hurting you.

That was so long ago.

Why can’t you just let it go?

Like a Loaded Gun

I’m trying to hold on baby

but the tears keep falling.

They’re falling like rain

because of all the pain.

I’m afraid that I have to let you go.

You’re like a loaded gun

so I’m going to have to run, run, run.

You’re ways aren’t any fun.

I can’t stop at this dock.

You like to hurt me at every stop.

No I can’t stop the clock.

I have to run, run, run.

I’m trying to hold on baby

but the tears keep falling.

They’re falling like rain

because of all the pain.

I was caught off guard for a second

and weak when I was accepted.

All the while I was being intrepid

putting aside all of my fears.

No I can’t stay.

I don’t like the games that you play.

You’ve hurt me for the last time.

I have to put you out of my mind.

I can’t hold on.

I’m getting off this merry-go-round.

No I can’t stick around.

My feet are on the ground.

I’m afraid I have to let you go.

You’re like a loaded gun.

I never know when you’re going to go off.

That’s why we always fought.
