Don't Go

Eight o'clock it's a Saturday night,
I should be with but you're nowhere in sight.
I'm gonna illuminate the city,
Don't think you can leave without saying goodbye to me.
If I'm lucky you're close by,
If not I'll search until I die.
You're the most important event that's happened in my lifetime,
I won't stop you from leaving but keep me close in mind.
This world wouldn't be in existence,
If it weren't for your excellence.
I'll vanish for you to stay,
No point in walking away.
I want you to know that,
I'd fight to have you back.
And if you get this message,
Please don't go!
I can lie and say I don't miss you,
Turn around, 'cause it's not true.
My heart knows you're the one for me,
I've reached my verdict and I believe.
I never completely thought this through,
I never though I'd go after you.
I never though I would scream,
Come back,
'Cause I need you.
Lying next to my answering machine,
Thought you'd call, must have been just a dream.
I check the messages for any sign of your voice,
"Zero Unread messages" you've made your choice.
I still don't think it was time to let go of your hand,
I respect your decision whether or not I understand.
I'm looking deep down inside,
For a reason why, putting everything else aside.
I'm going to pour out the feelings I have for you,
Listen to them all closely, there may be some you never knew.
With every word I speak, I mean,
See you in my dreams.
You've got your ticket in hand and all your bags packed,
I'm racing to stop you but the odds are stacked.
I want you to know that,
I'd fight to have you back.
And if you get this message,
Please don't go!
I can lie and say I don't miss you,
Turn around, 'cause it's not true.
My heart knows you're the one for me,
I've reached my verdict and I believe.
I never completely thought this through,
I never though I'd go after you.
I never though I would scream,
Come back,
'Cause I need you.
Your flight leaves in five,
Gotta persuade you to stay here with me so I can survive.
I don't have much time left you know,
My remaining few words conclude with "Don't go".
I want you to know that,
I'd fight to have you back.
And if you get this message,
Please don't go!
I can lie and say I don't miss you,
Turn around, 'cause it's not true.
My heart knows you're the one for me,
I've reached my verdict and I believe.
I never completely thought this through,
I never though I'd go after you.

Come back,
'Cause I need you.
(Please don't go)
I want you to know that,
I'd fight to have you back.
And if you get this message,
Please don't go!

Turn around, 'cause it's not true.
