  • Caught off guard
    All worked up
    The air is as dark and cold as night
    Let me go
    I'm not done
    I swear I'll take just one lifetime

    And I
    I won't lie
    I won't sin
    Maybe I don't want to go
    Can't you wait
    Maybe I don't want to go

    I should've asked
    I could've helped
    At least a fuckin thousand times before
    Will this offer
    Get me in
    Or does this prove that they gave more

  • Violet from Baltimore, MdThis is a pretty sad song when you listen to the words. It's like a final plea to god because he's isn't ready to leave. lyrics like "can't you wait? maybe i don't wanna go" emphasize the longing to live.
