"Don't Leave Me" as written by and Billie Joe/kiffmeyer Armstrong....
I'll go for miles
Till I find you
You say you want to leave me
But you can't choose
I've gone through pain
Every day and night
I feel my mind is going insane
Something I can't fight

Don't leave me
Don't leave me

A blank expression
Covering your face
I'm looking for directions
For out of this place
I start to wonder
If you'll come back
I feel the rain storming after thunder
I can't hold back

Don't leave me

I'll go for miles
Till I find you
You say you want to leave me
But you can't choose
I've gone through pain
Every day and night
I feel my mind is going insane
Something I can't fight

Don't leave me

    General CommentWritten in seventh grade by Billie Joe about a girl who dumped him. That's what Billie Joe sad in some little video thing of Green Day when they were real young playing at a high school. Funniest thing, in the middle of the song, John's bass drum pedal broke and someone from the audience(which I presume was very small) had to jump up on stage to give the guys a new one.

    Wow, they certainly have evolved since then.

    General CommentCOME ON!!! of course it might not be as good as some other songs, BUT REMEMBER...this is their debut album...

    and they didn't have Tré, back then....(they once said that if they didn't have Tré, they wouldn't be THAT popular today...)

    so i guess we can thank them all...(BJ for most of the lyrics, Mike for some other ones and the super-Bass and finally Tré for some other lyrics and for being one of the best drummers i know...(he's in the top 100)

    Nyways...
