I begged you to stay Pleaded on my knees Became a person I didn't know One so heartbreakingly weak. Still cheap doors shut on me As I waited on the cold floor There were long corridors A mile to the train station So many associations you had to pass But there was no looking back. I faded into darkness As you fought your way back To a world so far You couldn't even see me Never once had to hear my screaming.
I get shivers down my spine now When I think about that day I want to go back and tell that girl To get up. Get up It's not worth it It's better this way You won't ever need a man That wasn't man enough to stay. But I think that's what's fitting now In a pitiful kind of way.
Though I'm sure you wouldn't admit I think you somehow knew If you didn't leave me at my weakest - The only moment I wasn't stronger than you - If you didn't get up And leave me then You'd never have been able to.
