If you're gonna fly away
don't fly without me
don't go no where
I need you, babe

Has the sun gone down on you?
Have you given up on truth?
I wish I could say all the right things
To make your pain go away

I wish you knew
How beautiful you are in every way
When the world is falling down
Just kneel with me and pray

[Chorus]
If your gonna fly away
Don't fly without me
Don't go nowhere
I need you, Babe
If you gonna leave this place
Take me with you
I could never live without you

So you'll take a thousand pills
Hoping to be numb
Lie awake in bed
Counting all that's wrong

No one understands
No one ever will
Trust me when I tell you
I know just how you feel

You had all these dreams
But you're in a small town
Oh, they kill them for you
You had nothing else to do
But use and use and use and use

[Chorus]

Just sing a song for me, baby
It's not as bad as it seems, no no no
What matters today
Won't matter tomorrow
Count all your blessing,
Settle all your sorrow

[Chorus]

If you gonna leave this place
Take me with you
I could never live without you
Oooo, I need ya

    General Comment:This song is someone singing to someone that is taking drugs and wants to commit suicide because are feeling worthless because they did not achieve their dreams,"so you'll take a thousand pills hoping to be numb", "You had all these dreams but you're in a small town Oh, they kill them for you. The person singing the song loves them and is trying to convince them to not do it because they will kill themselves to in order to be together, " If your gonna fly away
    Don't fly without me
    Don't go nowhere
    I need you, Babe
    If you gonna leave this place
    Take me with you
    I could never live without you"
