Funny how time slips away
Looking at the cracks creeping across across my face
I remember the little kid living in here
He'll be living in here probably until I'm dead
Please don't leave me baby
Please don't leave me here
Sitting in a box away from the world out there
A world piled high with boxes just like this
But please don't ever leave me alone in here
Take me out shake of the dust, shake off the fear

Please don't leave me baby
Please don't leave me here
If you stay with me that don't mean we gotta stay the same
If you stay with me baby you and me will change the game

Well I don't know the man that's living in my head
Till you reach down and bring the light back in
No I don't know the man that's living in my head
If I don't know the woman sleeping in my bed

Remember how we used to kiss baby
Kiss like it was everything
Remember how we used to love baby
Love like it was everything

If you stay with me that don't mean we gotta stay the same
If you stay with me baby you and me will change the game
You stay with me I'll follow you and we can start again
I only got a minute or two to spare
And I got a whole fuckin' life to fit in there
So I waste time, stare at the TV set
Like I got dreams to kill and people to forget

Remember how we used to dance baby
Dance like it was everything
Remember how we used to love baby
Love like it was everything

If you stay with me that don't mean we gotta stay the same
If you stay with me baby you and me can change the game
If you stay with me, that don't mean I wanna stay the same

[Breakdown]

If you stay with me baby you and me can change the game

    The lyrics are "please don't leave me baby, please don't leave me [yet]" and "so [why] waste time staring at the tv set". Having listened so closely to dmb for many years, i almost guarantee the official lyrics will reflect my corrections to your lyrics.
