  • You can go, you can leave this town.
    Forget about the people and the places,
    and the faces that have let you down
    You can hide, you can change your name
    But the fear will always find you,
    if it's coming from inside you,
    so you've gotta change

    So if it's the same to you, you could stay with me
    I could take you from your nightmares, and put you inside your dreams
    And you would see, I'm never gonna leave you

    Even when you feel so low like you might let go
    I will be the first hand reaching out.
    I will be the last one giving up on you

    Even when you feel your breath fading from your lungs
    I will be the first hand reaching out.
    I will be the first, last, first, last and only one.

    If you leave, tell me where you'd go?
    Would you lock yourself inside a place,
    so no one had the chance to face you on your own

    'Cause when we fall down, we can stay down
    But the freedom that we wanna find,
    is only found when we're off the ground.

    So if it's the same to you, you could stay with me.
    I could take you from your nightmares, and put you inside your dreams
    And you would see, I'm never gonna leave you.

    Even when you feel so low like you might let go
    I will be the first hand reaching out.
    I will be the last one giving up on you.

    Even when you feel your breath fading from your lungs
    I will be the first hand reaching out.
    I will be the first, last, first, last and only one

    So if it's the same to you, you could stay with me
    I could take you from your nightmares, and put you inside your dreams
    And you would see, I'm never gonna leave you.

    Even when you feel so low like you might let go
    I will be the first hand reaching out.
    I will be the last one giving up on you.

    Even when you feel your breath fading from your lungs
    I will be the first hand reaching out.
    I will be the first, last, first, last and only one.

    Even when you feel your breath fading from your lungs
    I will be the first hand reaching out.
    I will be the first, last, first, last and only one Writer/s: DOUGLAS HAMILTON BROWN, SCOTT STAPP
