  • I don't see you laugh
    You don't call me back
    But you kiss me when you're drunk
    I don't know your friends
    Don't know where you've been
    Why are you the one I want

    Don't put your lips up to my mouth and tell me you can't stay
    Don't slip your hand under my shirt and tell me it's okay
    Don't say it doesn't mater 'cause it's gonna matter to me
    I can't be alone with
    You've got me out on the edge every time you call
    And I know it would kill me if I fall
    I can't be alone with you

    Please don't chain that door
    I can't win this war
    Your body's like a pill I shouldn't take

    Don't put your lips up to my mouth and tell me you can't stay
    Don't slip your hand under my shirt and tell me it's okay
    Don't say it doesn't mater 'cause it's gonna matter to me
    I can't be alone with
    You've got me out on the edge every time you call
    And I know it would kill me if I fall
    I can't be alone with you

    Don't put your lips up to my mouth and tell me you can't stay
    Don't slip your hand under my shirt and tell me it's okay
    Don't say you're gone love me 'cause you know you're gonna love me and leave
    I can't be alone with
    You've got me out on the edge every time you call
    And I know it would kill me if I fall
    I can't be alone with you

    I don't see you laugh
    You don't call me back
    But you kiss me when you're drunk Writer/s: JOHN THOMAS HARDING, CATHY LEE GRAVITT, SHANE MCANALLY
