Daniel

  • Do you still sleep without your pillows in the house on Cherry street?
    Do you hear the sea?
    And we promised we would meet back up in Autumn,
    But next spring came crawlin' on its knees.

    You couldn't fit inside my suitcase,
    And I didn't wanna be slowed down.
    Sometimes I wish that I could turn the clock around.

    Why Daniel? I wish you'd talked me out of it, through thin and thick
    Why Daniel? Why'd you let me walk away, I would've stayed.
    I convinced me if I loved you, I'd leave you, I was lying.
    You stood there with your palms out, your crying was silent
    Why Daniel? I didn't mean a word I said back then.
    Why'd you let me win?

    I remember when we spoke of flying North to Paris, France,
    Just to feed the birds
    And do you still have that old napkin you took home from the cafe,
    Where I wrote those 3 words?

    You couldn't follow me to LA
    I should have never took that job
    Now three years have passed and I still feel so robbed

    Why Daniel? I wish you'd talked me out of it, through thin and thick
    Why Daniel? Why'd you let me walk away, I would've stayed.
    I convinced me if I loved you, I'd leave you, I was lying.
    You stood there with your palms out, your crying was silent
    Why Daniel? I didn't mean a word I said back then.
    Why'd you let me win?

    Have you settled down with someone since I gave you time to grow?
    Do you ever think about me, was it easy to let go?
    I was such a foolish soul.

    Why Daniel? I wish you'd talked me out of it, through thin and thick
    Why Daniel? Why'd you let me walk away, I would've stayed.
    I convinced me if I loved you, I'd leave you, I was lying.
    You stood there with your palms out, your crying was silent
    Why Daniel? I didn't mean a word I said back then.
    Why'd you let me win?
    Why'd you let me win? Writer/s: DIA FRAMPTON, TOBY GAD, LINDY ROBBINS
