I don't want to hear you say you're sorry
And I don't want to wait for you to find some other way
'Cause I can see the tears before they fall into the water
Helplessly on your knees

And even though you feel
As though your world is caving in
It's hard to breathe when the soul's worn thin
Don't give in

You can't say you're not okay
When I am here beside you
Can't say your life was wasted, if wasted on love
Don't jump before you fall
Don't close your eyes and throw it all away
For one mistake

I don't want to lose you to a memory
You're everything I am I'd never make it on my own
So don't believe that no one sees
How beautiful you are to me
You can't just leave

'Cause even though you feel as though your heart is weak
That every beat is just a way to stay on it's own
But you are not alone

You can't say you're not okay
When I am here beside you
Can't say your life was wasted if wasted on love
Don't jump before you fall
Don't close your eyes and throw it all away
For one mistake

Turn away from all the pain
Your mind has come undone
Don't regret the things you said when you were young
Look around and see that only love remains
Through right and wrong
So everything you waited for is here
But you must stay strong
Hold on

You can't say you're not okay
You can't say you'll never make it

You can't say you're in the way
When I am here beside you
Can't say your life was wasted if wasted on love
Don't jump before you fall
Don't close your eyes and throw it all away
For one mistake
One mistake
One mistake
Oh no, no no no
Don't close your eyes and throw it all away
