Lyrics & Music by Martin Shears

lyrics

We got a thing had the world on a string
Don’t say goodbye
We got a love they’re all in envy of
Don’t say goodbye
I know I’ve been a fool
It wasn’t kind to be cruel
But what we share there’s nothing can compare
Don’t say goodbye

So if you want me to crawl
I won’t say anything at all
And if you want me to bleed
Just cut out my heart
It ain’t something I need to be lonely

You had a light that never burned so bright
For all to see
There was a glow that always seemed to flow
Between you and me
It was a difficult day
That took your sparkle away
But if I can sing and light you up again
Don’t say goodbye

So if you want me to crawl
I won’t say anything at all
And if you want me to bleed
Just cut out my heart
It ain’t something I need to be lonely

What else can I do?
‘Cause every moment with you
Brings me closer to who
I’ve always wanted to be

If you want me to crawl
I won’t say anything at all
And if you want me to bleed
Just cut out my heart
It ain’t something I need
Oh I wish you believed
Oh baby don’t leave me lonely
