The little things, you do to me are,
Taking me over, I wanna show you
That everything inside of me oh,
Like a nervous heart beat, is crazy beating
I'm feeling stuck here, against the pavement
I wanna break free, I wanna make it
Closer to your eyes, get your attention
Before you pass me by

Back up back up take another chance
Don't you mess up mess up I don't wanna lose you
Wake up wake up this ain't just a thing that you
Give up give up don't you say that I'd be
Better off better off, sitting by myself and wondering
Better off better off, with out you boy

The little things, you do to me are,
Taking me over, I wanna show you
That everything inside of me oh,
Like a nervous heart beat, is crazy beating
I'm feeling stuck here, against the pavement
I wanna break free, I wanna make it
Closer to your eyes, get your attention
Before you pass me by

Back up back up take another chance
Don't you mess up mess up I don't wanna lose you
Wake up wake up this ain't just a thing that you
Give up give up don't you say that I'd be
Better off better off, sitting by myself and wondering
Better off better off, with out you boy

Don't just leave
Me, hanging on
Don't just leave
Me, hanging on

The little things you do to me are
Taking me over, I wanna show you
That everything inside of me you are,
Like a nervous heart beat, is crazy beating
I'm feeling stuck here, against the pavement
I wanna break free, I wanna make it
Closer to your eyes, get your attention
Before you pass me by

So don't just leave, leave me hanging on

So back up back up take another chance
Don't you mess up mess up I don't wanna lose you
Wake up wake up this ain't just a thing that you
Give up give up don't you say that I'd be
Better off better off, sitting by myself wondering(so don't just leave, leave me hanging on)
Better off better off, without you boy(so don't just leave, leave me hanging on)

So don't just leave, leave me hanging on
Don't just leave,
Leave me hanging on
Leave me hanging on
So don't just leave, leave me hanging on

    Colbie Caillat is the great new artist of our time. She's just seems so down to earth and cool. She sings on the positive things like love and happiness.

    The boy likes a girl but when they were together already he betrayed her. The girl then pleaded the boy to join her but he just keeps on pushing her away...

    I like this song alot, it's one of my fav songs by her.
    She has a nice voice and I can actually relate to the whole song. I like the way that the songs we like have something to do with us.
