When I was young
I used to think
Whatever happens
Is meant to be
You don't believe that
I wait around all day for you
You didn't show and then I knew
You were leaving

Wait around
There's something that I gotta tell ya
You won't have long to wait

You don't have to listen
You don't have to say goodbye
You don't have to leave here
Give me one reason why
You don't have to listen
You don't have to say goodbye
You don't have to leave here
Give me one reason why

What if I hust count to ten
Close my eyes and open them
Would you be here?
This is all so strange to me
My mouth has tried to hard to speak
But you don't see that
But you don't see that (you don't see that)

Wait around
There's something that I gotta tell ya
You won't have long to wait

You don't have to listen
You don't have to say goodbye
You don't have to leave here
Give me one reason why
You don't have to listen
You don't have to say goodbye
You don't have to leave here
That's why I'm here tonight

But you sit and watch me lye
As I think of what to say
Try to make sense of it all
Yeah



You don't have to listen
You don't have to say goodbye
You don't have to leave here
Give me one reason why
You don't have to listen
You don't have to say goodbye
You don't have to leave here
Give me one reason why
You don't have to listen
You don't have to say goodbye
You don't have to leave here
Give me one reason why
You don't have to listen
You don't have to say goodbye
You don't have to leave here
Give me one reason why
(Give me one reason why)

    My InterpretationI think this is such a beautiful song, I can't believe no one has commented yet on it. It's pretty obvious what its about but I could be wrong- What I THINK its about is a Boy who loves a girl and she might love him too but she's afraid to feel it so she's trying to escape the relationship and he's trying to convince her that its okay to feel such. I don't know it could be wrong, but I know this is kind of how I felt with my boyfriend.
