• Well you're just across the street
    Looks a mile to my feet
    I want to go to you
    Funny how I'm nervous still
    I've always been the easy kill
    I guess I always will

    Could it be that everything goes round by chance
    Or only one way that it was always meant to be
    You kill me, you always know the perfect thing to say
    Hey hey, hey hey
    I know what I should do but I just can't walk away

    I can picture your face well
    From the bar in my hotel
    I wish I'd go to you
    I'll pick up, put down the phone
    Like your favorite Heatmeiser song goes
    It's just like being alone

    Oh god please don't tell me this has been in vain
    I need answers for what all the waiting I've done means
    You kill me, you've got some nerve but can't face your mistakes
    Hey hey, hey hey
    I know what I should do but I just can't turn away
    (Away, away)

    So go on love
    Leave while there's still hope for escape
    You gotta take what you can these days
    There's so much ahead
    And so much regret

    I know what you want to say
    I know it but can't help feeling differently
    I loved you
    And I should have said it
    Tell me just what has it ever meant

    I can't help it baby, this is who I am
    Sorry but I can't just go turn off how I feel
    You kill me, you build me up but just to watch me break
    Hey hey, hey hey
    I know what I should do but I just can't walk away Writer/s: James Christopher Adkins, Richard E Burch, Thomas Darrell Linton, Zachary Michel Lind
