(featuring Cee-Lo Green)

So why would you stay if it's killing us both just to be here?
There's no more room to grow and you won't find yourself 'till you leave me.
It's a beautiful world outside these walls,
And I love you too much to hold you down
With my light shine.....
And it's blinding you...so
G'on....get away.....leave me be
'cause I don't wanna see your face around here.

So don't complicate it,
I don't have it in me to hate you.
I was there to be your freedom.
I just want to be your faerie.
And I try to teach you, but I can only stay for one more day
Then I am....
Gone....get away....leave me be
Cause I don't wanna see your face around here. (repeat)

There ain't nothing here for you if you stay.
And it's so hard to hear myself say
"go away"
Instead of " baby please stay just one more day"
I barely have the strength to leave you
And you don't wanna be with me
So go on (just get gone)
And leave me alone...

Cee-lo: that isn't true
Girl, how could you say what you not mean?
Oh we used to have such a hot thing
And I just can't go anywhere and be not seen
But for the love of you there's places I have stopped being
And don't make me start about the sweets and all the shopping
I mean God I even went out and got the ring
And it's no cliche
Love is blind it's in you Literally- stop seeing
But when you truly love someone, you wouldn't be shamed
And if I did not see you there, girl, I wouldn't have came
You must think i've got some strong shoulders 'cause that's where keep putting the blame
Whoever said fucked up your head
Talking bout if you love somebody enough that you wouldn't have pain.
