Please Leave Me Behind

Verse 1
All right you fooled me almost every time
OK I fell for almost every line
That’s why I asked you nicely
Please leave me behind
Leave me behind
I’ll stay out of your dreams
If you’ll just stay out of mine

Verse 2
You pulled the wool over my eyes
You must has thought I was blind
Took me to the cleaners
Robbed me of every dime
That’s when I finally told
Baby, I’ve changed my mind
Changed my mind
I’ll stay out of your dreams
If you’ll just stay out of mine

Bridge:

Now a deal ain’t a deal and a deal ain’t real until it sealed
By more than something you just said
And when I go to bed it’s with a sense of dread that like the living dead
You’ll reappear inside of my head
In my head

Verse 3
I’ve turned the page, closed the book, moved on down the line
No regrets, don’t look back, just a big waste of time
But all the while I thought that deal
Was so well defined
So well defined
I’d stay out o your dreams and you’d stay out of mine
Now I’ve stayed out of your dreams
How come I still find you in mine?
