Just so you know if it were up to me
I'd be living the high life,
But for know I'm taking steps in the wrong direction
just to get by,
So take it or leave it.
This one's for you, you know who you are.

Please leave well alone,
Just because I'm smiling doesn't mean I'm about to go.
Don't pick me up, I'm fine right where I am.

I'm gonna leave this town tonight and fall asleep to the sunrise
'cause I've got to change my life.
What did this to you?
I don't need to be told twice.
I'd be willing to give my life
just to say goodbye.
What did this to you?

Please leave well alone,
Just because I'm smiling doesn't mean I'm about to go.
Don't pick me up, I'm fine right where I am.

So many things could have made me this way
I don't regret a single day.
This is what I was made for. (was made for)

Just like you did before me, I'll follow suit.
I plan on being eveything you were to honor you.
I know you didn't live long, I cannot promise I will too.
I'm saying everything I can as a tribute.

I'm gonna leave this town tonight and fall asleep to the sunrise
'cause I've got to change my life.
What did this to you?
I don't need to be told twice.
I'd be willing to give my life just to say goodbye.
What did this to you?

I will carry on your legacy.
You made me who I am today.
I remember the first time I heard you,
it changed my life...

    General Comment"What did this to you?" is 'what did this do to you' and "I'm gonna leave this town and fall asleep to the sunrise" is "I'm gonna leave this town TONIGHT and fall asleep to the sunrise" just a minor change. love this song. thanks!
