Don't Go Away

Album: Black Butterfly (2008)
  • In my darkest state of mind
    I am riddled with despair
    When I try and close my eyes
    Your voice is all I hear
    I will think of you tonight
    I will hold back all my tears
    I've waited all these years

    Please don't go away
    You're making a mistake
    You and I were meant to be
    You opened up my eyes
    And made me realize
    Now its changing everything
    It's crazy how I feel this way
    I can't explain don't go away

    I see your shadow all the time
    I see your face inside my mirror
    Like a sunset in the sky
    You distract me from my fears
    I keep holding it inside
    And I wish that you were near
    It's better when You're here

    Please don't go away
    You're making a mistake
    You and I were meant to be
    You opened up my eyes
    And made me realize
    Now its changing everything
    It's crazy how I feel this way
    I can't explain don't go away

    All the things you said
    And all the games we played
    Will come back to you
    See the look in your eyes
    Oh, don't go away

    Please don't go away
    You're making a mistake
    You and I were meant to be
    Please don't go away
    You're making a mistake
    You and I were meant to be
    You opened up my eyes
    And made me realize
    Now its changing everything
    It's crazy how I feel this way
    I can't explain why I feel this way
    It's hard to say
    I want to make you see
    What you mean to me
