Rachael Yamagata – Sunday Afternoon lyrics

It's a choice
To stay
It's a dream
& I wanna wake
You have blood on your hands
And I'm feeling faint
And honey
You can't decide
I'm a drug
Ya don't wanna give up
Smoke your cigarettes
Make your love
You poured blood in my heart
And I can't get enough
I'm drowning, drowning
And you can't decide
It's not about geography, or happenstance
You need to fly, & take a chance
You don't need to soar to emptiness
Float on high, & forever dance alone
Your scared, scared, scared
Cuz I feel like home
Hear your voice
Knew right away
If you were here
Your eyes would say
There is blood on my feet
As I'm walking away
Rivers are red
Its starting to rain
I'm not gonna live for you
Or die for you
Won't do anything anymore for you
Cuz you leave me here on the other side
You leave me here on the other side
(repeat 3 more times)
Not gonna shed one more tear for you
Shed one more tear for you
I'm not gonna shed one more tear for you
At least not til Sunday Afternoon
Sunday Afternoon
Leave or Stay
Leave or Stay
