  • You went and turned a red flag white
    Darling and you waved it
    You've always had a way with words
    Why can't you explain it then?
    I see your face in everyone baby and I hate it
    Who would have ever thought I'd had to erase it?
    Uh

    Every little thing is reminding me of you
    Yes, I'll set fire to my whole room (Ah, ah, ah)

    I don't want to let it show but I still love you
    And how do I let you know if I can't call you?
    And I don't want to be alone, no not tonight and I don't want to feel this blue
    How do I let you go if I don't want to?

    I double take at every phone that rings out of habit
    I can't shake the little things, they're harder to manage, whoa
    I can't bury the past, but I'll bury the hatchet
    Can we just pretend that this never happened?

    Every little thing is reminding me of you
    Guess I'll set fire to my whole room (Ah, ah, ah)

    I don't want to let it show but I still love you
    And how do I let you know if I can't call you?
    And I don't want to be alone, no not tonight and I don't want to feel this blue
    How do I let you go if I don't want to?

    So what are you doing tonight?
    'Cause I miss you and I
    And I can't even lie I need you
    I could get on a flight, I could make up the time
    I know I'm out of line, can I see you?

    I don't want to let it show but I still love you
    And how do I let you know if I can't call you?
    And I don't want to be alone at night and I don't want to feel this blue
    How do I let you go if I don't want to?
    Baby how do I let you go if I don't want to?
    How do I let you go if I don't want to? Writer/s: Alessia Caracciolo
