The Civil Wars – Go lyrics

Why do you keep looking out the window?
Is it something left behind or never found?
Do I even want to know?
Oh, if you knew what I was thinking
I wonder if they'd even draw a tear
Oh, there's just one way to find out

Go, go, go

Did sirens steal your heart when you weren't looking?
Where'd you learn to lie the way you do?
Looks like you've made up your mind.
I'd have to say I didn't see this coming
But who does?
You won't see me standing in the door, so

Go, go, go

I don't wanna hurt you
Do you ever listen?
I don't wanna run
You're not the only one
I don't wanna touch you
Eternally I'm broken
Oh, look what we've become
Look what we've become
I don't even care
They need you
I don't want to
Go, go, go

I don't want to stay/I don't want to go
