Just Please Leave Me

Well it seems as though we've been foolin' each other again
And I can't find out really who is to blame
But from what I’ve heard we didn't try for another name
Do kings and queens always end up so lame
Do singers and poets always have to explain

Just please just leave me so you won't put me down
Just please leave me so i won't have to drown
Just please leave me so you won't let me down

Well your picture in my room has been drivin' me insane
And thoughts of you leavin' have been a'crawlin' all around my brain
And hopes of you stayin' have just flushed down the drain
When lovers die does it leave so much pain
Take a hammer to break away the chain

Just please just leave me so you won't put me down
Just please leave me so I won't have to drown
Just please leave me so you won't let me down

Well it seems as though we've been foolin' each other again
And I can't find out really who is to blame
However, from what I’ve heard, we didn't try for another name
Do kings and queens always end up so lame
Poets and singers always have to explain

Just please just leave me so you won't put me down
Just please leave me so I won't have to drown
Just please leave me so you won't let me down
