Fighting to keep this alive Constantly fighting to keep myself going Dear friend, I haven't the slightest desire To help keep you going Keep to myself all the time (Kid it's better that way) Try to avoid all the lines (But I can't have you stay) And the things that they say Fighting to keep this alive (Kid it's better that way) Constantly fighting to keep myself going (But I can't have you stay) Please don't run from your problems You can't keep running, there's no place to go As you escape from your life This house becomes hollow And all we can do is just wait Sit here and wait for this train to arrive I've got my bags packed and I've said my goodbyes Constantly giving into these moments That just bring me down Just bring me close enough to stay around, to stay around Keeping to yourself is no way to live your life You can't fight what's coming And all that you can do is sit back and realize, we'll be there Cause you keep waiting for someone to save you Embrace you and take you away, far away Take you
so far from this place Running away, so far away Running away, so far away I can't stay, I can't stay with you here I can't stay, I can't stay with you here As you escape from your life This house becomes hollow And all we can do is just wait Sit here and wait for this train to arrive I've got my bags packed and I've said my goodbyes Constantly giving into these moments That just bring me down Just bring me close enough to stay around, to stay around But I won't stay around
