sometimes not being sure where you belong is the oddest feeling.

lyrics

(Please, Don't)
(Please, Don't leave me here)

I took a wrong turn or maybe two and got lost.
And every sign was a reminder of the hope that I'd forgot.
Every trail leading me as if I knew a lot.
Never asked if I was sure or not.

You never know,
just how these plans will unfold.
But even if it's hard
we dive into the dark,
find anything to hold,
and ask it where to go.

And I've oft
lost my train of thought
while trying to stay awake in airports
at 3 AM.
Tell me again
if the odds are shot.
I'd rather not
bet all I've got.

So I hold my breath
as we're hitting the road.
I'm still missing places I've never been
or never will again.
I'd face all my worst fears
if you leave me here.

(please) (don't)
Leave me here
(please) (don't)
Leave me here
(please) (don't)
If you leave me here.
(please don't leave me here)

It's hard to comprehend
just how much can go right over your head.
Machines bring you to tears
but you're the calmest that you've been,
oh, that you've been in years
when I fell and broke instead.

And I've oft
lost my train of thought
while crying into bowls of shin-ra-myun at 3 AM.
That's often when
I'll make my worst mistakes,
oh, can't you relate?

So I hold my breath
as we're hitting the road.
I'm still missing places I've never been
or never will again.
I'd face all my worst fears
if you leave me here.

(please) (don't)
Leave me here
(please) (don't)
Leave me here
(please) (don't)
If you leave me here.
(please don't leave me here)

We're a far cry from any goodbyes;
stuck on who really are the "good guys".
Without the black or white
ways to apologize.
I'll remember who'd never leave me to die.

So I hold my breath
as we're hitting the road.
I'm still missing places I've never been
or never will again.
I'd face all my worst fears
if you leave me here.

Oh, it's time to hit the road.
I'm still missing places I've never been,
or never will again.
I'd face all my worst fears
if you leave me here.

(please) (don't)
Leave me here
(please) (don't)
Leave me here
(please) (don't)
If you leave me here.
(please don't leave me here)
