Not Now, Not Ever

[Verse_1]
Tonight her friend decided to end it all
with a bottle of pills and some alcohol
and she’s been crying all night long
and I can’t tell her that I love her ‘cause she’d just tell me that I’m wrong
And I can’t tell her the words that she needs to hear
Because they don’t seem to be working
and I can’t be there for her when she needs me there
‘cause what she’s telling me is hurting

[CHORUS]
And she’s so alone
in the same place I was
a few years ago
when I used to make cuts
on my arms
on my wrists
and she tells me that’s what she’d like to do
This girl who needs love but refuses the words “I love you”

[Verse_2]
I’m waging war, and I’ll never to quit
I’m in an uphill battle but I’m losing it
And I’ve been trying all night long
And I can’t tell her that I love her, but I’ll write it in a song
And I see can the darkness and I see her there
And what I try to say is worthless
But I don’t stop because she sees me there
And she’s telling me her purpose

[CHORUS]
And it’s that she’s so alone
in the same place I was
a few years ago
when i used to make cuts
on my arms
on my wrists
and she tells me that’s what she’s about to do
this girl who needs love but refuses the words “I love you”

[Bridge]
And I’ve told her so many times
exactly what she means to me
and she doesn’t even realize
exactly what it means to be

[CHORUS_Alt.]
completely alone
in the place that she’s been
since a few days ago
a few days ago when
she made cuts
on her arms
and she’s told me what she really wants to do
and I say, “don’t leave me now, or you’ll never know how much I love you.”
