Don't Shut-Up


You're horrible and irresponsible

You can't shut-up

But I don't want you to

That's the sad thing


Keep on talking

It's the only good thing about you

Don't go

I need to hear your voice


You're so not worth it

But I want you to stay

And keep talking

Put your arm around me

And just keep talking

Don't shut-up

No matter how many times I tell you so


I'll make excuses for you to stay

Express how much I want you to go

When really inside I'm bursting

I need you to be here

For me

With me

Although all we're doing is talking


And I know I seem distant

And I know I may even seem aggravated

But if only you knew just how I feel


You'd think twice about moving

You'd think thrice about staying

Would you stay?

Or would you go for you don't feel that way?

I shouldn't care how you feel


Cause you're so not worth it

But I want you to stay

And keep talking

Put your arm around me

And just keep talking

And please

I beg of you

Don't shut-up

No matter how convincingly I tell you so
