I see your hand reach for me,
but I can't reach out to help you up
and pull you in, gracefully.
My hands are numb,
I just can't feel the warmth you gave to me.
December nights, days passed away...

And so I say to you,
Just go away.
I'm not waiting for tomorrow.
I need today.
Please.

I hear your voice call out to me.
I can't hear your cries.
I'm trying hard to block you out,
so save your lies.
I never liked a cloudy day
'til I saw your face.
You make me hate what I've become.

And so I say to you,
Just go away.
I'm not waiting for tomorrow.
I need today.
Please.

A million sighs, a million days,
a million ways that I could make you stay,
but I won't say.
But I can see for miles and miles,
and I can see it's not a cloudy day.
Just go away.

And so I say to you,
Just go away.
I'm not waiting for tomorrow.
I need today.
Please.
...Today
