I won't be the circus for you to star in
I won't leave you roses to watch them die
You won't be the heartache that keeps me sleepless
You won't be the songs that I could never write

I don't want to stay, I don't want to fall
I don't want to have to see you leave me
I don't want to stay, I don't want to fall in love
Maybe I'm a fake, maybe you're a lie
Maybe our last chance died with last night
I don't want to stay, I don't want to fall in love with you again

I won't be a fortress for you to hide in
I won't be the first one you think to call
You won't be the regrets that I can't live with
And we won't be the last ones to ever have to lose it all

I don't want to stay, I don't want to fall
I don't want to have to see you leave me
I don't want to stay, I don't want to fall in love
Maybe I'm a fake, maybe you're a lie
Maybe our last chance died with last night
I don't want to stay, I don't want to fall in love with you again

When we're scared and lonely
We will tell ourselves we're only
Just a word from what we needed
But we know that this ain't right

I don't want to stay, I don't want to fall
I don't want to have to see you leave me
I don't want to stay, I don't want to fall in love
Maybe I'm a fake, maybe you're a lie
Maybe our last chance died with last night
I don't want to stay, I don't want to fall in love with you again

I can't stay
I can't fall for you again

    General CommentI don't believe that this is really a song about Christ. I'm pretty sure that it's about a relationship that he had previously been in where he really loved the other person, but that person wasn't fair or didn't treat him correctly and left him. After a long time apart, the other person comes back to him, and this song is kind of his struggle to stay away from the person. He doesn't want to go through that pain again.

    General CommentSo, I'm confused...is this a Christian band or what? Trying to make a connection here with the lyrics to something spiritual or faith-based but it ain't easy. Only thing I can come up with is with Christ's death and something close to what He may have been thinking as He was going to the cross.

    Dunno, just seems like another song about not wanting to get back together with someone who's hurt you before (possibly multiple times). If so, dunno what's so Christian about having that kind of relationship, surely it's not Christ-centered...
