don't be scared to leave him
you've been sad all season
you should think of something to say.
maybe you could tell him
that from the day you met him
you've been liking him less and less.
things have got to change
'cause if they stay the same
you'll both get carried away.
he might really love you
and be crushed by the news
and you can take back everything you said
and if he feels the same way --
has been waiting to say
the same things but on a different day
you'll go your separate ways
and all your days with him will fade --
be carried away.

    General CommentThis song is so fucking good, especially live. Its about a girl that this guy feels for, and he really can't satnd having this man she's with, carry on this charade. Very well done.

    General CommentActually, there's nothing here to indicate that the narrator is interested in "the girl." Could be just a friend. But yeah, basically this girl is miserable in this relationship and wants out, and thus the narrator is advising her to do just that. Fairly simple stuff, yet good.
