Get up, don't get up
I beg you to sit tight
Sweet girl, I'll be a ghost, girl
Forget it, I am fine

If anything, a witnessing
Is all I needed that night

Until I get what I'm to get
He'll keep being compelled to flee
Until I out his false story
He'll keep playing the guy who leaves

Brother, oh, brother
Solo you did bust out
All I knew was you didn't invite me
So begin seeds of self-doubt

There is nothing as harrowing
As how I translate facts

Until I get what I'm to get
He'll keep being compelled to flee
Until I out his false story
He'll keep playing the guy who leaves

Baby, oh, partner
How well you've played this part
Similar, oh, how familiar
Reluctant truth you impart

And how you served necessity
Repeat 'til she sees light

Until I get what I'm to get
He'll keep being compelled to flee
Until I out his false story
I'll keep blaming the guy who leaves
