Always got one foot out the door
(Where you going?)
It’s making it so hard to say
(Goodbye)
It’s making it so hard to say
(Goodbye)

Only kissing me when she’s not around
(And when he’s not around)
You should stay, baby
One more night

Here we go, again
(I’m writing a note)
Making new plans
(I’m calling your name)
Changing seasons
(I’m wearing your clothes)
Holding new hands
(I’m wearing the pain)
Blue skies follow
(Standing alone)
Every footstep
(Step, stumble away)
I’m still waiting
(Not a word that I wrote)
Hoping I’m not wrong
(Not a thing that I said)

Second to the second
Oh, oh, oh
I’m sitting in a parking lot and where is god
I need someone to take the pain away

Always got one foot out the door
(Where you going?)
It’s making it so hard to say
(Goodbye)
It’s making it so hard to say
(Goodbye)

Only kissing me when she’s not around
(And when he’s not around)
You should stay, baby
One more night

Let your hair fall
(I’m writing a note)
Just like water
(I’m calling your name)
Come together
(I’m wearing your clothes)
Love each other
(I’m wearing your pain)
Work it all out
(Fighting the cold)
Soak it all in
(I’m getting caught in the rain)
Trust your instincts
(Not a word that I wrote)
Joy is waiting
(Not a note that I say)

Second to the second
Oh, oh, oh
I’m sitting in a parking lot and where is god
I need someone to take the pain away

Always got one foot out the door
(Where you going?)
It’s making it so hard to say
(Goodbye)
It’s making it so hard to say
(Goodbye)

Only kissing me when she’s not around
(And when he’s not around)
You should stay, baby
One more night

Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye

I swear I saw that sparkle in your eye
The last time you cried, the last time you cried

I swear I saw that sparkle in your eye
The last time you cried, the last time you cried

Always got one foot out the door
(Where you going?)
It’s making it so hard to say
(Goodbye)
It’s making it so hard to say
(Goodbye)

Only kissing me when she’s not around
(And when he’s not around)
You should stay, baby
You should stay
You should stay, baby
One more night
