I saw her wait, waiting at the bus stop
Watching as her tears dropped
Like pennies down a well, oh well
We can drink until the Sun comes up
I never let a good thing go
So I'll stay here if you're not leaving

I am on your side
This house is empty
We could cross the line
Yeah we could make a big mistake
The silence breaks and you hear me say

"Don't go, don't go, so far away"
(You don't have to go)
"Don't go, don't go, so far away"
You don't have to go.

I saw your man, a fast car and a dark sun tan
You said he's in a punk rock band
But baby, punk rock's dead
Oh well
We could drink 'til you forget about him
It's not like he waits up for you
I'm sure he'd do the same thing too

But I am on your side
This house is empty
We could cross the line
Yeah we could make a big mistake
The silence breaks and you hear me say

"Don't go, don't go, so far away"
(You don't have to go)
"Don't go, don't go, so far away"
You don't have to

I knew it was a crime
I did it anyway
I tell 'em we're like magnets,
I tell 'em I feel no shame
If I crawl into your blood
Can I sleep under your skin?
Come on let me in, don't make me wait

I am on your side
This house is empty
We could cross the line
Yeah we could making a big mistake
The silence breaks and you hear me say

"Don't go, don't go, so far away"
(You don't have to go)
"Don't go, don't go, so far away"
(You don't have to go)
"Don't go, don't go, so far away"
(You don't have to)
"Don't go, don't go, so far away"
(You don't have to)
"Don't go, don't go, so far away"
You don't have to go
You don't have to go.

    does anyone else feel like this line is a jab at SoCo? maybe not at the music they made, but at the fact that they came under scrutiny for trying to be a pop-punk band when Andrew has said he never really cared for punk music. i could be wrong, i just always think it's a tongue-in-cheek reference to SoCo whenever i hear that line.
