lyrics

When you told me not to go
I nearly stayed with you
I would've kept my seatbelt on
Left the airport in your car
Instead I kissed you once goodbye
flew back to the east coast
Because I knew I wasn't home
When you told me not to go

Do you remember when
there was a moment we both sensed
that we were more than friends
We were not quite so shy
we held on tight and closed our eyes
as strangers passed us by
Roses beside the bed
Gave way to fears that filled our heads
And I could feel us grow apart instead

If I came back again
Would you be waiting when I land
Would you hold my hand
Could the tenderness
Be just enough to help forget
Everything I left
Look close and you will see
The limits to what we could be
And you deserve to find what you need

When you told me not to go
I nearly stayed with you
I would've kept my seatbelt on
Left the airport in your car
Instead I kissed you once goodbye
flew back on a red-eye
Because I knew I wasn't home
When you told me not to go
