I’d rather die
Than to need this
If I could just hold off
Tonight
I think
I’d be all right sleeping alone
I know I’d be all right sleeping alone
But no, no, no
This isn’t possible
No, no this isn’t possible
Just sit back and relax
But don’t worry I've
Never been one to notice much but
I’ll be the first to say
That this is crazy

But if it’s everything you’ll ever need
I guess it’s everything you’ll ever need

Just keep your voices down
Can’t you see these other people
Trying to sleep in this town
And you still
Get your thrills from
Coffee and pills and
Complaints about the noise I make

But no, no, no
This isn’t happening
No, no this isn’t happening
Sit back and relax
But don’t worry I’ve
Never been one to notice much but
I’ll be the first to say this is crazy

So if you don’t like then
Then you can leave
Nobody’s making you do this, no
If you don’t like it then
Then you don’t like it then

Hold off the cars
And get your radios on
They’ll never know what living does
Hold off the cars
And get your radios on
They’ll never know

Just sit back and relax but
Don’t worry I’ve
Never been one to notice much but
I’ll be the first to say
This is crazy

    General CommentALBUM VERSION


    I’d rather die
    Than to need this
    If I could just hold off
    Tonight
    By tomorrow you'll be gone
    And I'll be alright, alright

    But no no no
    Just isn't possible
    No nO, it isn't possible
    Just sit back and relax
    But don’t worry
    I've never been one to notice much but
    I’ll be the first to say
    That this is crazy

    But if it's everything I'll ever need
    It's everything I'll ever need

    Just keep your voices down
    Can’t you see these other people
    Trying to sleep in this town
    And you still
    Get your thrills from the
    Coffee and pills
    They complain about the noise we make

    But no no no
    Just isn't possible
    No nO, it isn't possible
    Just sit back and relax
    But don’t worry
    I've never been one to notice much but
    I’ll be the first to say
    That this is crazy

    Oh no
    They're not listening
    They'll never know whats happened
    Let go
    There's no problem here
    We're not hiding anything

    So sit back and relax
    Don't worry
    I've never been one to notice much

    Just sit back and relax
    But don’t worry
    I've never been one to notice much but I'll
    I’ll be the first to say
    That this is crazy

    But if it's everything I'll ever need
    It's everything I'll ever need

    General Commentgoing with promisexkept's interpretation, he really likes the girl but doesn't like the current state of the relationship. Very pretty song, lovely.

    General CommentThis is a must hear. its so uplifting...even if it may be talking about a hard part of a relationship.

    "You still get your thrills from the coffee and pills"
    when he sings that in the slower version i definately feel it .haha

    General Commenti think it's like this:

    "hold off the GUARDS
    and get your radios on
    they'll never know what HIT THEM
    JUST hold off the GUARDS
    and get your radios on
    they'll never know"

    General CommentTo me it sounds like he says
    "So sit back and relax Dont worry ive never been one to TAKE to much"
    I dont here "notice much"? I dont know maybe thats just me.
    Im not listening to the Album version im listening to the demo or the slower version or whatever it is.
