Looks like you chose me. Feels like you’ve frozen me.
I got down to the bottom of it, down on my knees to see your point of view.
You fill your heart with kindness and starve your mind to blindness and walk away.
I can’t spell it out more clearly or say it more sincerely
You can’t walk away just like your friends.

Feel uneasy. Your eyes freeze me.
I got into the heart of it, into my heart to find my point of view.
Get away from all this madness, this soul destroying sadness and walk away.
You can’t spell it out more clearly or say it more sincerely
You can’t walk away just like, just like

Your friends will see you in a new light
And your friends will make it up tomorrow night
And is this, is this your very last goodbye? Goodbye.

You look so broke up. You look so choked up.
You get down to the bottom of it, down on your knees to find the way to go.
And get out there and fight it. It’s too late just to spite it and walk away.
Face it, face it. You can’t spell it out more clearly or say it more sincerely
You can’t walk away.
