Please Say No Lyrics

by Jimmy Eat World

It was a freezing night and not a single cloud
I had a couple in me so I reached out and then I heard your voice
I felt you all inside
I pray for the distance to keep us in line

But there's things I've done you understand like no one else
There's pain I kept buried deep inside myself
I've been saying for forever "Hey that's not me"
But me with you is who I think I'll always be

Please say no
Please say no
Please say no
Please say no

Say anything you will except how you'd have me still
Say anything but no
And I'd go I'd go I'd go

It was the peak of the summer and I thought I'd drown
We couldn't get close, all the kids were around
But I could read you plain
You want a different life
Someday hell you might ruin mine

I've lately come to wonder what it might feel like
If one last time we went and did this right
And somewhere no one possibly could know our names
Somewhere no one bothers to remember a face

Please say no
Please say no
Please say no
Please say no no no no no

Say anything you will except how you'd have me still
Say anything but no
And I'd go I'd go I'd go

With you
With you
With you

Ooooooohh
Ooooooohh
Oooooooooooohh

If all you're really hoping for is peace of mind
Don't come to me with questions, you'll just waste your time
Exactly what you're looking for is what you'll find
All I see around me is a losing fight

Please say no
Please say no
Please say no
Please say no no no no no

Say anything you will except how you'd have me still
Say anything but no
And I'll go I'll go I'll go
Say anything but no
And I'll go I'll go I'll go
