Don't say goodnight
and walk away without that kiss that you owe me
Don't (don't) close your eyes (your eyes)
and say you don't want me, I wish that you'd want me now

You know that I promised, I'd always have an ear for you to lend,
but now your syllables are phrases I don't understand

Calling out in desperation
Fighting off this suffocation
Screaming out loud
wanting so bad to be heard

Don't say goodnight
and walk away without that kiss that you owe me
Don't (don't) close your eyes (your eyes)
and say you don't want me, I wish that you'd want me now

When the days ends and you're cold from standing out alone
The only voice of recognition is your own
Crying out in desperation
begging to be heard,
but only you can hear your words

You know that I promised, I'd always have an ear for you to lend
You know that I promised...

Calling out in desperation
Fighting off this suffocation
Screaming out loud
wanting so bad to be heard

Don't say goodnight
and walk away without that kiss that you owe me
Don't (don't) close your eyes (your eyes)
and say you don't want me, I wish that you'd want me now

Don't say goodnight
and walk away without that kiss that you owe me
Don't (don't) close your eyes (your eyes)
and say you don't want me, I wish that you'd want me...
Don't say that you want me, I (wish) know that you want me now
