Before I Leave Tonight

I thought I would say goodbye.
So we're at the end of the road
But there's too many ways to go
Tell me now because we really need to know
Don't act like you don't care
Because it's hard just standing here
With somebody who is drowning in there tears

There's more people
With love a plenty
But this one
Is taking more energy
To hold on to
To fix at night
Just to wake up to a fight

And now I know that this
Is just a mistake
And I know that you
Do nothing but take
But I still have feelings
But I don't know what to say
To tell me please
Do you want to stay
And if you don't then please
Say goodbye
Before I leave tonight

No more of this emptiness
No more of taking of all this
I'm not just for you to get your kicks
I'm not here for the fuss or the fight
But it's all my fault right?
No more of this
No more of you here
Come back when you even care

There's more people
With love a plenty
But this one
Is taking more of my energy
To hold on to
To fix at night
Just to wake up to another fight

And now I know that this
Is just a mistake
And I know that you
Do nothing but take
But I still have feelings
But I don't know what to say
To tell me please
Do you want to stay
And if you don't then please
Say goodbye
Before I leave tonight
