Lyrics: Don't Say You'll Go

Posted by Comrade , in Lyrics 05 December 2012 · 268 views

You know when you love someone and you wish you didn't? Someone who has said they love you and has taken it back? That bitter self-resentment that you get when you know you can't let go of something you hate? But you know how it's still the sweetest thing because love, as hopeless as it may be, is always beautiful and innocent in it's selflessness? In preparation to start tackling some more of my epic, this sort of stuff has been going around my head, trying to claw back some really bittersweet memories and feelings. It's uncomfortable, but I started writing, started humming, and this came together. I've drawn on recent positive feelings combined with some older shit. I don't know how seriously I take it, but I'd be interested to know how relate-able it is emotionally.


Don’t Say You’ll Go


All those empty bottles on the floor are a reminder

Of the memories we have that we don’t share

Every good time that we had and all the shit we used to blag

All the things I said to you and no one else

And what about all of the shit we put each other through?

Did making up mean anything to you?

Don’t make the mistake of thinking you need to remember

To know if you had the time of your life

Don’t say you’ll go, and I won’t say that I know

We fell in love one cold night in November


Don’t say you’ll go, and I won’t say that I know

We fell in love one cold night in November


You promised me something that you couldn’t give

You threw me on the street when you said you’d take me in

You didn’t know my name but you forgot it anyway

I don’t know what to say except I wish that you had stayed


Did I break your heart or did I open up the cracks?

Was there even something there to break?

You’re bleeding into me like a bittersweet addiction

I can’t come down from the highs for the lows

And the doubts are swept away by the sounds of yesterday

Either stand still or run away to your past

I’ve done everything I could do not to remember you

But your name is burned into my heart

Don’t say you’ll go, and I won’t say that I know

We fell in love one cold night in November


Don’t say you’ll go, and I won’t say that I know

We fell in love one cold night in November


You promised me something that you couldn’t give

You threw me on the street when you said you’d take me in

You didn’t know my name but you forgot it anyway

I don’t know what to say except I wish that you had stayed


Is this love or is it even something worse?

If this is winning then I don’t want to come first

I really liked this part.
That was really good though. I can also relate as I have written songs like this that also mention November. Seems like that is not a romantic's month huh?

Thanks man, I know right? For me the November line ties into something that actually happened in November, but I guess 'cause it's the start of the winter and summer has ended, it's just a month of ending and shiteness. I can see how romantics dig that.

I may or may not have cried a bit while reading this, you'll never know.

But I loved it, specially the last two lines. They set a bit of a chill down ones spine. Good job.
