Hit The Lights

I can’t wait much longer out here on my own
‘Til my hands surrender and feet bring me back home
Swore that I could take it I was never givin’ up
Didn’t take too long to see that I’m all outta’ luck

Hit the lights and cue the water works
Watch the world go by like no one knows it hurts
There’s freedom somewhere out there but I’m stayin’ in tonight
So before you shut the door on me go on hit the lights

To love you drove me crazy to leave you broke my heart
Guess I thought you’d save me but I made it pretty hard
Last words you spoke to me still ringin’ in my mind
Never stay so long that you can’t leave it all behind

Hit the lights and cue the water works
Watch the world go by like no one knows it hurts
There’s freedom somewhere out there but I’m stayin’ in tonight
So before you shut the door on me go on hit the lights

Maybe you’ll regret it but I kinda’ think you won’t
You don’t seem to miss me and I probably shoulda’ known
That I’d stay stuck this way I don’t know what else to do
But that ain’t you
