All Get Out - Let Me Go

You were sitting in your bed
You're grinning from ear to ear
I can smell the evening, somethings seem pleasing to you, only you
I was waiting up for you
I worried about you
I put them to bed, they missed their dad
Just where in Hell were you
The first step is always truth
That's my first suggestion to you
I can do my best if you'd get some rest
Then you tell me just what you do
I want to help you
I want to bring you back to life, but your sad sick brain knows one damn thing
And god it comes out every night

Don't let me go

Your choices, they're hard to make
You make this harder everyday
I'm sure I'm leaving, no more deceiving, or fumbling for words to say
I gave you everything I had
I loved you till the death
That heart's going to beat, you're able to breathe, but surely you're dead to me

Those shivers and shakes your body makes aren't going to go away
That's the price you pay for the games you've played
Nothings going to change
I can't help you
I can't bring you back to life
You can find your help from someone else who's there and who has the time
Don't let me go

You try to get dressed and you put your shoes on
Let's get to the car and let's make this right
The drive is short, but it sure feels long
That's just how it is when you're leaving home
This isn't the end of your life
It's more like a pause and soon there's a start
You'll be back on your feet again in no time
If you're not with me then to Hell, I'm not fine

I tried convincing God to change you
We had it out and he said no
He said a choice is a choice then he said you made it
He'd help you along but God why is nothing free?
You filled me up with hope God I've used it
I've used it all on you can't you see it?
There comes a time when you choose for another
So I'm making this choice for the three that we've made
You and me?

Don't let me go
