LyricsEdit

[Verse 1]
The city of angels is lonely at night
Keep myself alive by candlelight
Say she can't love you like I do
Look me in the eyes and say it's true
I ask myself, "Is this love at all?"
When I need you most, you let me fall
I'm always here at the side of your stage
Let you live your life, pretend I'm okay

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Don't you know that this ain't over?
I'll be okay
I'll hold you close, we'll stay forever

[Chorus]
I don't understand why you're leaving me
I don't understand how without you I can't breathe
Please don't, don't leave me here
Take my hand, I'm bleeding tears
I don't understand why you can't take me with you

[Verse 2]
You can pretend I don't exist
But you see my face every time you kiss
I hope you hurt and your walls fall down
When you hear the sound that I'm okay

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Don't you know that this ain't over?
I'll be okay
You can't hold me down, I won't stay forever

[Chorus]
I don't understand why you're leaving me
I don't understand how without you I can't breathe
Please don't, don't leave me here
Take my hand, I'm bleeding tears
I don't understand why you can't take me with you

[Bridge]
I watch you leave, walk away tonight
And I'm letting go for the last time
And through the tears I say goodbye
So breathe in, breathe in, breathe in, breathe out

[Chorus]
I don't understand why you're leaving me
I don't understand how without you I can't breathe
Please don't, don't leave me here
Take my hand, I'm bleeding tears
I don't understand why you can't take me with you

[Outro]
Don't leave me here
Please don't leave me here
I don't understand, how without you I can't breathe
Please don't, don't leave me here
Take my hand, I'm bleeding tears
I don't understand why you can't take me with you
