If You Can't Live Without Me, Why Aren't You Dead Yet?

Album: Anywhere But Here (2009)
  • Baby, I sorely miss the vibrant gleam that's in your eyes
    I'll write a song about it
    And maybe if the melody's just right
    I hope tonight it will find you
    It will remind you

    But what's holding me back is the thought of time we never had
    My world's hanging by three words that I can't bear to say

    When you hear this chorus
    Do you miss the way the world was spinning for us?
    Do you hurt the way that I do?
    After all this time you leave me broken
    This song is every word I left unspoken
    When you hear this, girl, I'm hoping that you'll think of us
    That you'll think of us

    Baby, I told myself that I'll be fine but it's a lie
    I don't wanna talk about it
    Memories, oh they cut like knives
    Deep inside I'm falling
    Baby, catch me if you can

    What's holding me back is the thought of time we never had
    My world's hanging by three words that I can't bear to say

    When you hear this chorus
    Do you miss the way the world was spinning for us?
    Do you hurt the way that I do?
    After all this time you leave me broken
    This song is every word I left unspoken
    When you hear this, girl, I'm hoping that you'll think of us

    When you hear this chorus
    Do you miss the way the world was spinning for us?
    Do you hurt the way that I do?
    After all this time you leave me broken
    This song is every word I left unspoken
    When you hear this, girl, I'm hoping that you'll think of us
    That you'll think of us

    Baby, I sorely miss the vibrant gleam that's in your eyes Writer/s: BOBBY HUFF, DEREK SANDERS, JAKE BUNDRICK
