  • Get dressed in your bed, while she's asleep
    It isn't right, but it isn't hard
    Tell me, tell me, won't you understand?
    Show me, show me, show me a better plan
    It's summer lies, it's someone else's nothing
    Here it comes now

    You ask me to stay
    You ask me to stay
    You ask me to stay
    But there's a million reasons to leave

    Find a job, find a friend
    Find a home, find a dog
    Settle down, out of town
    Find a dream, shut it down

    Please, please don't point it that way
    It's just a trigger that goes once and you'll be unafraid
    I wish that I'd been noticed, but it never goes that way
    The silence that you brought has gone, gone, gone

    Tell me, tell me, won't you understand?
    Show me, show me, show me

    You ask me to stay
    You ask me to stay
    You ask me to stay
    But there's a million reasons to leave

    Show me what to say, show me what to be
    Show me what to see, show me what to be

    Find a job, find a friend
    Find a home, find a dog
    Settle down, out of town
    Find a dream, shut it down

    I don't wanna be in there with you
    I don't wanna be in there without your loving either
    I waited for your thoughts
    Can't wait no longer Writer/s: Albert Hammond, Fabrizio Moretti, Julian Casablancas, Nick Valensi, Nikolai Fraiture
