lyrics

I gotta get out
Get out of this place
Cos if I stay here any longer
I’m staying with the wrong girl
You won’t recognise my face
I gotta get out
It’s different this time
But I can’t leave her behind

We had a promise now we’re tiptoeing around the pieces
Like the eggshells on the floor
And now the echoes of the past are louder than the present
I can’t hear her anymore

Don’t talk back this is the only language that she knows
It’s just your hair, it’s just your body, it’s just your clothes
I’m trying to do what I think is right
And if causing bruises is just something that she cannot stop
I see no reason why I should involve the cops
I’m here to save her soul tonight

Give her the space to be
What she needs to be right now
(I know you think that this is something that you gotta do)
(You wanna save her but who’s gonna save you?)
It’s gonna be ok
Though I can’t imagine how

I gotta get out
Get out of this place
Cos if I stay here any longer
I’m staying with the wrong girl
You won’t recognise my face
I gotta get out
It’s different this time
But I can’t leave her behind

I can’t imagine all the horrors on the troubled road
That could lead someone to here
And when you love someone you stick with them when times are hard
I’ve got to overcome my fear

It was a one-off and it won’t happen again
She said that she was sorry, can’t we just got back to when
I wasn’t scared to make her mad?
No, I could have stopped it if I wanted I’m just being weak
I had complete control of what happened out in the street
It’s nothing next to what she’s had

She’s lived this life for years
You’ve just had some tricky nights
(I know you think that this is something that you gotta do)
(You wanna save her but who’s gonna save you?)
Man up, blink back your tears
And just fold in all the fights

I gotta get out
Get out of this place
Cos if I stay here any longer
I’m staying with the wrong girl
You won’t recognise my face
I gotta get out
It’s different this time
But I can’t leave her behind

We’ve been through so much stuff
You don’t just leave when things get rough
Of course I’ll stick out
That’s the woman that I-
