Don't Go

Lately when I wake up
all the numbers on my clock are new to me
I gotta get more sleep
Stay up late nights
wasting my time
Planning out how
I can make you see
Just what you really need

A stomach full of worry never got me very far
I'll drive out my frustration in this godforsaken car
Somewhere deep inside of me
I know that you were part of the problem
But I still want you
No
Don't go

I know it's not healthy but
I'm kind of getting used to being sick
They don't make cures for this
I'll always be your backup plan
Silver medal, though I ran
The hardest and the farthest of them all

A stomach full of worry never got me very far
I'll drive out my frustration in this godforsaken car
Somewhere deep inside of me
I know that you were part of the problem
But I still want you
No
Don't go

And I can always count on you to count me out
Another broken heart that I could do without
I know I'll never be the one that you adore
So I'll turn around
And stand my ground
And settle down
And settle for

A stomach full of worry never got me very far
I'll drive out my frustration in this godforsaken car
Somewhere deep inside of me
I know that you were part of the problem
But I still want you
So
Don't go
Don't go
Don't go
