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 when I heard your voice
Felt you all inside
I prayed 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 know
When I go, I go, I go

It was the peak of 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'd lately come to wonder
What it might feel like
If one last time
We went and did this right
And so no one possibly could know our names
So no one bothers to remembers 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 know
When I go, I go, I go

With you, with you, with you

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 bag

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 know
When I'll go, I'll go, I'll go

Say anything but know
And I'll go, I'll go, I'll go
