Go Away

Album: On A Mission (2011)
  • I open my eyes, watch you lying there,
    The sun beating on your skin
    It became an unwritten rule with you
    Somehow I always seem to give in
    Why you got to be so strong
    Your stubbornness is cruel
    You know what I'd do for you
    And I know where you'd walk for me
    But we gotta speak it
    Oh so quietly

    If you could please just go away
    Leave me alone
    Yeah, fly away
    Into the stars
    Never see your face
    It would make my world such a better place
    It would make my world such a better place

    You open your eyes, watch me lying there
    What I'd give to know what you see
    What I'd give to know what you feel, know what you think
    If only I could step in your skin
    But you see I already know
    It'll end in tears
    When you carry out all my fears
    Being here's a dangerous game
    I'll end up insane
    And only have myself to blame

    If you could please just go away
    Leave me alone
    Yeah, fly away
    Into the stars
    Never see your face
    It would make my world such a better place
    It would make my world such a better place

    I know that you care
    But it's never enough
    I know you'll be there
    But it's never enough
    Please just play fair
    I don't ask you for love
    'Cause I don't need no empty words here

    I know that you care
    But it's never enough
    I know you'll be there
    But it's never enough, oh
    Please just be fair
    I don't ask you for love
    'Cause I don't want your empty words here

    Oh
    If you could please just go away
    Leave me alone
    Yeah, fly away
    Into the stars
    Never see your face (never see your face, oh)
    It would make my world such a better place
    If you could please just
    If you could please just
    If you could please just
    If you could please just Writer/s: Gene Chelonis Ridgeway Jones, Svein Berge, Torbjorn Brundtland
