Dean Lewis – Straight Back Down lyrics
[Verse 1]
You know I find it hard to sleep when
I'm sleeping by myself
And I’m lying in the spare room
Thinking I should be somewhere else
You should know when we've been drinking
We can sabotage ourselves
Like smashing up the kitchen
Now, there's nothing that seems to help

[Pre-Chorus]
And I don’t want to wake you up
Tell you that I'm leaving town
I already packed my stuff
Can't go back now
But the way you look brings me straight back down
I don't want to wake you up right now

[Chorus]
I was ready to go, ready to go
I don't want to wake you up right now
I was ready to go, ready to go
I don't want to wake you up right now

[Verse 2]
You're breaking out the windows
While I was tearing down the doors
And now I'm picking up the ashtray
That you threw against the wall
’Cause we take, and we take just a little more
I have no idea what we’re fighting for
No we're standing right here outside your door
Now I know, now I know

[Pre-Chorus]
And I don’t want to wake you up
Tell you that I'm leaving town
I already packed my stuff
Can't go back now
But the way you look brings me straight back down
I don't want to wake you up right now

[Chorus]
I was ready to go, ready to go
I don’t want to wake you up right now
I was ready to go, ready to go
I don't want to wake you up right now

[Bridge]
'Cause I can't live with you, I can't live without you
You feel like home, you feel like home
'Cause I can't live with you, I can't live without you
You feel like home, you feel like home

[Pre-Chorus]
And I don't want to wake you up
Tell you that I'm leaving town
I already packed my stuff
Can't go back now
But the way you look brings me straight back down
I don't want to wake you up right now

[Chorus]
I was ready to go, ready to go
I don't want to wake you up right now
(Can't live with you, I can't live without you)
I was ready to go, ready to go
I don't want to wake you up right now
(Can't live with you, I can't live without you)
I was ready to go, ready to go
I don't want to wake you up right now
