Alive Like Me – Slip Away lyrics

I have a hold of everything I've ever wanted

Will somebody please tell me what to say?
I'm lost for words and I can't seem to find a way
Around the awful truth
The terrible truth is I'm tired of running from

You are, the only reason I would stay
And you are the only thing that's
Pushing me away

Will you please stop asking me to stay
When you know it has to
(you know its has to)
You know it has to be this way

I have a hold of everything
I've ever wanted
I won't let it slip away

I can't stand it when you're yelling over me
I try to speak, calm you down but it's killing me
To dance around the truth
The terrible truth is I'm tired of running from

You are, the only reason I would stay
And you are the only thing that's
Pushing me away

Will you please stop asking me to stay
When you know it has to
(you know it has to)
You know it has to be this way

I have a hold of everything
I've ever wanted
I won't let it slip away

I couldn't tell if you were glad that it was over
I should have stayed the night
Just one more night
To make sure that you knew that I'd come back
And I could see it in your eyes
If it was up to you you'd rather have me home
But it's not your choice
I wish I didn't have to do this on my own x2
I can't do this on my own x2

Will you please stop asking me to stay
When you know it has to
You know it has to be this way

(This way)

Will you please stop asking me to stay
When you know it has to
(you know it has to)
You know it has to be this way

I have a hold of everything
I've ever wanted
I won't let it slip away
