I got my phone, got my keys, got my money
Got my pride, got my self-respect
I'm going home, so please, please honey
Leave it out, what did you expect?

What was I thinking? - tell me
What was I drinking? - tell me
What was I thinking? - tell me, tell me...

If I could I would, but I just can't stay tonight
Oh no, If I could I would, but I just can't stay the night
I'm having so much fun I really wish I
Didn't have to run
So If I could I would but I just can't stay...

Understand, I'd be yours for the taking
If only things were not the way the were
It wasn't planned, but the mess that we're making
Doesn't make it any easier

How could we do it? - tell me
Could we get through it? - tell me
If it came to it? - tell me, tell me...

If I could I would, but I just can't stay tonight
Oh no, If I could I would, but I just can't stay the night
I'm having so much fun I really wish I
Didn't have to run
So If I could I would but I just can't stay...

It isn't easy, cuz I'm ready to go
Please believe me, I wouldn't say no
No, I wouldn't say, I wouldn't say no
I would if I could but I can't

Oh no, If I could I would, but I just can't stay tonight
No, no, If I could I would, but I just can't stay the night
I'm having so much fun I really wish I
Didn't have to run
So If I could I would but I just can't stay...
