I'll Be Gone

If you think I'm gonna sit here

Till the morning light 

Waiting up just in case you phone 

If you think I'm gonna lie awake

Alone at night 

Wondering if you're ever coming home 

If you think I'm gonna waste

Another second of my time 

Then let me tell you that you're wrong 

You only come around here

When you want something from me 

Next time you want me, I'll be gone

 

Do you think I'm gonna listen to

Another of your lies 

Then find myself forgiving you? 

Do you think I'm gonna look into

Your ice cold eyes 

And let them hypnotise me like you do? 

Do you think I'm gonna waste my time

Hoping that you'll change? 

Oh, no I realise I don't belong

You only come around here

When you need me 

Next time you need me, I'll be gone

 

Don't think I'm gonna spend my life

Being yours when it pleases you

Oh, no I can't let it go on

You only come around here

When you want something from me

Next time you want me, I'll be gone

 

There'll be no more nights

Just sitting here staring at the wall 

Wondering what you'll have to say 

Wondering just what the hell

I'm doing here at all 

And why it is I love you anyway 

In many ways you're just like me

You're searching for a dream 

Oh, but I know I'm not the one 

You only come around here

When your so called friends desert you 

Next time they hurt you, I'll be gone
