“Don’t Go”
[featuring Lights]

I was raised in the valley, there was shadows and death.
Got out alive but with scars I can’t forget.
This kid back in school, subdued and shy.
An orphan and a brother and unseen by most eyes.
I don’t know what it was that made a piece of him die,
Took a boy to the forest, slaughtered him with a scythe.
Stamped on his face, an impression in the dirt.
Do you think the silence makes a good man convert?

We all have our horrors and our demons to fight.
But how can I win, when I’m paralyzed?
They crawl up on my bed, wrap their fingers round my throat.
Is this what I get for the choices that I made?
God forgive me, for all my sins. God forgive me, for everything.
God forgive me, for all my sins. God forgive me, God forgive me.

Don’t go, I can’t do this on my own.
Don’t go, I can’t do this on my own.
Save me from the ones that haunt me in the night.
I can’t live with myself, so stay with me tonight.
Don’t go.
Don’t go.

[Lights:]
If I let you in, you’d just want out.
If I tell you the truth, you’d vie for a lie.
If I spilt my guts, it would make a mess we can’t clean up.
If you follow me, you will only get lost.
If you try to get closer, we’ll only lose touch.
Yes you already know too much, and you’re not going anywhere.

Tell me that you need me ’cause I love you so much.
Tell me that you love me ’cause I need you so much.
Tell me that you need me ’cause I love you so much.
Say you’ll never leave me ’cause I need you so much.

Don’t go, I can’t do this on my own.
Don’t go, I can’t do this on my own.
Save me from the ones that haunt me in the night.
I can’t live with myself, so stay with me tonight.
Don’t go, I can’t do this on my own.
Don’t go.
Save me from the ones that haunt me in the night.
I can’t live with myself, so stay with me tonight.
Don’t go.

[Lights:]
Don’t go. [x11]
