this one is about feelings

lyrics

I need to get out of this city
If you’re gonna leave too then I’ll stay
I always say that I’m gonna leave
But I won’t if I don’t today
So my bags are packed but maybe I’ll wait until the morning comes

Oh just give me one good reason
Just give me one damn excuse
Well you know you’ll always make me sick
But I guess I’ll always stay for you
So my bags are packed but maybe I’ll just wait for that reason

Maybe you were wrong
Or maybe I’m just insane
Cause I’d leave you for a future I never had
And you would never get in my way

But once I’m gone you’ll wish that I stayed


I finally got out of that city
Lord, how I wanna come back
All that I have now are my regrets
And my bags that are already packed
That may be true but I’m waitin' on you to call
I said that may be true but I’m waitin' on you to call

I thought that my problem was this city
But this city's problem was me
I burnt all of the bridges back
And through the flames I can’t see
So I watched 'em burn now I’m just gonna turn and walk away
I said I watched 'em burn now I’m just gonna turn and wish I stayed

Oh, Maybe you were right
And I guess I’m just insane
'Cause I left you for a future I never had
And you would never get in my way

Well now that I’m gone do you wish that I stayed?
Now that I’m gone do you wish that I stayed?
Now that I’m gone do you wish that I stayed?
