I don't know why
I don't know why
I'm so afraid (so afraid)

And I don't know how
I don't know how
To fix the pain (fix the pain)

We're livin a lie
Livin a lie
We just need to change (need to change)

Cuz we're out of time
We're out of time
And it's still the same

You can't stop the world
But there's so much more that we could do
You can't stop this girl
From falling more in love with you

You said nobody has to know
If it's time to go
And take it slow
But I can stop the world stop
If they finally let us be alone
Let us be alone

Hearin the noise
Hearin the noise
From all of them (from all of them)

And I'm on the edge
I'm on the edge
Of breakin down (of breakin down)

Like Bonnie and Clide
Let's ride
And take this town

So keep it alive
Keep it alive
Don't make a sound

You can't stop the world
But there's so much more that we could do
You can't stop this girl
From falling more in love with you

You said nobody has know
If it's time to go
And take it slow
But I can stop the world
If they finally let us be alone
Let us be alone

If the world wont take
That final blow
I'll turn the other page
I wont close the book

You can't stop the world
But there's so much more that we could do
You can't stop this girl
From falling more in love with you

You said nobody has to know
If it's time to go
And take it slow
But I can stop the world
If they finally let us be alone
Let us be alone

    The song is talking about how this girl wants this guy. She's falling for him more and more and he"s telling her to take it slow. She would do anything to just be alone with him
