You Should Leave Me Now


I didn't know 
If you'd come by today
Yeah, I'm doing alright
I'm doing okay
They left the curtains wide open
(I can) See the boats out on the bay
I close my eyes
And the breeze lifts me away

Jimmy stopped by
On his way to work
I teased him about his girl
You should have seen the smirk
A goofball big heart
You two are so alike
But you're not afraid
To look me in the eye

  chorus:
  You should leave me
  You should leave me now
  Go and leave me
  You should leave me now

Playing out the scene
From every broken dream
We haven't talked about it
But you're acting like we did
You say that it's okay
And that's your final word
But you can't pretend to me
This is what we deserve

Throw out all the cards
From all of my relations
So many complications
Too much information
Remember how we met
All the stupid things I said
How we'd get married
Who could see that far ahead

  chorus:
  You should leave me
  You should leave me now
  Go and leave me
  You should leave me now

    bridge:
    You're gonna need a story
    It helps to have a line
    You didn't see me much
    I didn't have the time
    Say my attention wandered
    Off the beaten track
    But don't say you never loved me
    At least leave me with that
    At least leave me with that

  chorus:
  You should leave me
  You should leave me now
  Go and leave me
  You should leave me now
  You should leave me now
