Don't Leave Me

Album: Enema Of The State (1999)
  • Don't leave me all alone
    Just drop me off at home
    I'll be fine, it's not the first
    Just like last time, but a little worse, and

    She said that I'm not the one that she thinks about and
    She said it stopped being fun, I just bring her down
    I said, don't let your future be destroyed by my past.
    She said, "don't let my door hit your ass."

    One more chance, I'll try this time
    I'll give you yours, I won't take mine
    I'll listen up, pretend to care
    Go on ahead, I'll meet you there, and

    She said that I'm not the one that she thinks about and
    She said it stopped being fun, I just bring her down
    I said, "don't let your future be destroyed by my past."
    She said, "don't let my door hit your ass."

    Let's try this one more time with feeling
    One more time with feeling
    One more time with feeling
    One more time with feeling

    She said that I'm not the one that she thinks about and
    She said it stopped being fun, I just bring her down
    I said, don't let your future be destroyed by my past.
    She said, don't let my door hit your ass

    Don't leave me all alone
    Just drop me off at home
    And I'll be fine Writer/s: MARK HOPPUS, TOM DELONGE, TRAVIS BARKER

  • Arkady from London, EnglandMark: 'This song is about my herpes [an STD], it's called "Don't Leave Me" and it goes like this'
    -Mark, Tom And Travis Show
  • Weng from Los Angeles, CaTom DeLonge: "Mark wrote that song, so I can't really speak about what was going through his mind when he wrote that one. But I can judge on the lyrics. He wrote that song when he didn't even have a girlfriend, so I don't know who he's talking to. Sometimes you write a relationship song that really doesn't have that much deep meaning. I think it's just like that feeling when you're really in love with a girl, you're just thinking 'Please, please, please don't stop liking me.' That's the gist of the song. All the times you put your feelings into liking a girl, and she doesn't like you at all, and she thinks you're a scumbag. So therefore that song's like a prayer to a girl. Always hoping that you won't make the girl throw up forever, always hoping that the girls will love you. We speak for all males, we write songs hoping that girls will like us dirty rotten boys for a long time."
