Crystal Bowersox – Speak Now lyrics

There ain't no reason for me
To hang around this town no more
Gonna pack it up move on out
And start searchin' for the shore
Sell my life as I know it
To anyone with land to buy
Cuz it ain't worth much to me
To stay here and sit around and cry
But if you think you're gonna miss me
When I go speak now darlin'
Or you will never know

Well I don't care if you like it
Cuz honey this is not your life
I will never be held prisoner
I will never be your wife
I've learned that friends are overrated
Ohhhh and lovers come and go
But if all you do is dream about it
Well then you've got nothin' to show
But if you think you're gonna miss me
When I go speak now darlin'
Or you will never know

For once the engine starts turnin'
And the wheels they hit the road
I ain't ever comin' back to
This town called Chicago
Oh, I'm leavin' it all behind me
There ain't no place that I call home
Well I'm tearin' this heart right off
Of my sleeve and honey
I'm turnin' it into stone
Well I think I'm gonna miss you when I'm gone

So kiss me once, kiss me twice
Maybe I'll stay for just one more night
And honey, say what you feel
Please mean what you say
I wanna hold onto you for one more day
But if you think you're gonna
Miss me when I go
Speak now darlin' or you will never know
