Stop the World

Album: Here We Go Again (2009)
  • I don't know why
    I don't know why I'm so afraid
    I don't know how
    I don't know how to fix the pain

    We're living a lie
    Living a lie
    This needs to change
    We're out of time
    We're out of time
    And it's still the same

    We can't stop the world
    But there's so much more that we could do
    You can't stop this girl
    From falling more in love with you
    You said, "Nobody has to know
    Give us time to grow and take it slow"
    But I'd stop the world, if it'd finally let us be alone
    Let us be alone

    I'm hearing the noise
    Hearing the noise from all around
    I'm on the edge
    I'm on the edge of breaking down
    Like Bonnie and Clyde
    Let's find a ride and ditch this town
    To keep it alive, keep it alive
    Don't make a sound

    We can't stop the world
    But there's so much more that we could do
    You can't stop this girl
    From falling more in love with you
    You said, "Nobody has to know
    Give us time to grow and take it slow"
    But I'd stop the world, if it'd finally let us be alone
    Let us be

    I never wanna take that final look
    I'll turn another page
    Won't close the book

    We can't stop the world
    But there's so much more that we could do
    You can't stop this girl
    From falling more in love with you
    You said, "Nobody has to know
    Give us time to grow and take it slow"
    But I'd stop the world, if it'd finally let us be alone

    Let us be alone
    Let us be alone (let us be alone)
    Let us be alone Writer/s: Demitria Lovato, Nicholas Jonas, Patrick Bianco
