You need someone to hold you
You need somethin' that you ain't been getting
Yeah, I could be the one
To tell you what to do, but it don't mean nothing
And you're holding on forever
But that something just ain't true


I'm just like you
And I know
It's what I'd do
Here I go


'Cause I couldn't stop the world, 'cause I loved you
I couldn't stop the world, and I don't want to
I couldn't stop the world, and I won't
'Cause it ain't enough


You had another bad day
You let me know that you just can't take it
I've given up on you
You live in truth and I know I can't fake it

'Cause the stars you see are on a dirty sidewalk
And they ain't polished and new


If they don't come true
And I know, it's what I'd do
Here I go


'Cause I couldn't stop the world, 'cause I loved you
I couldn't stop the world, and I don't want to
I couldn't stop the world, and I won't
'Cause it ain't enough


I'm not too young for the world
I'm not too young for the world
And I can't change for the world
'Cause I don't care for the world
I don't need to stop the world
It don't make sense, the world
