Its sitting by the overcoat,
The second shelf, the note she wrote
That I can't bring myself to throw away
And also
Reach she said for no one else but you,
Cuz you wont turn away
When someone else is gone

Im sorry bout the attitude
I need to give when Im with you
But no one else would take this shit from me
And Im so
Terrified of no one else but me
Im here all the time
I wont go away
Its me, yeah I can't get myself to go away
Its me, and I can't get myself to go away
Oh God I shouldn't feel this way
(chorus)
Reach down your hand in your pocket
Pull out some hope for me
Its been a long day, always aint that right
And no lord your hand wont stop it
Just keep you trembling
Its been a long day, always aint that right

Well Im surprised that you'd believe
In anything that comes from me
I didn't hear from you or from someone else
And your so
Set in life man, a pisser they're waiting
Too damn bad you get so far so fast
So what, so long
(chorus)
Its me, yeah and I can't myself to go away (2x)
Oh God I shouldntfeel this way
(chorus)
