Put your arms around the one
Whose heart that you've just broken
And take them to the bottom again
Why don't you leave?

What you see when you're far away
Gets blurry when it's in your face
Find yourself someplace new to stay
Why don't you leave?

Why don't you pick up and go?
You've already let me know
That I'm nothing to you anyhow
Who is the weak one now?

You don't need me 'cause you don't need
Anyone in here can read the writing
On the hanging tree
Why don't you leave?

Once you tried to make some ground
And there you were backstabbing me down
You got lazy so you stuck around
Why don't you leave?

You were set free but you could not run
Must have mistaken weak for strong
The slowest reaction to the fastest gun
Why don't you leave?

Why don't you pick up and go?
You've already let me know
That I'm nothing to you to trust
And that is the truth about us

You don't need me 'cause you don't need
Everyone but you can read the writing
On the hanging tree
Why don't you leave?

Tonight I watched you from below
And I could tell you wanted to go
Just outside the law
Why don't you leave?
