Lyrics

I know it's been a couple seasons too long
Since you last seen the leaves turning green
Waitin' for a change in the ozone
Standin' on the edge of eternity
The storm is only temporary though
I can tell you that without a weather man
You don't need a permanent solution
There's too many of us that'll hold your hand

Woa, brother you don't have to go
Woa, brother you don't have to go

The world is spinning ‘round on account it burns
Against the way the hand on a clock turns
Strugglin' to find why to coexist
Reachin' out to time that isn't relative
I wish you realized how much you mean
To everyone around you that you cannot see
Blinded by the flash of society
Sometimes it's hard to find the focus that you need

Woa, brother you don't have to go
Woa, brother you don't have to go
Woa, brother you don't have to go
Woa, brother you don't –

It makes me sick when I think that
One second goes by and you feel trapped
Stuck hidden inside what you built up
Anyone would grab your hand if you reached back
Think about all the lives you affected
Touched on someone else and their blessings
Made someone else laugh with a message
Changed somebody's day for the best of
Think about all the people that love you
There's always someone there you can run to
Always someone on the road that'll guide you
Closer than they appear in the rearview
And sometimes see through
I know it's tough tryin' to stay connected
When everyone's so damn neglecting
Like fuck the others, fuck the world
How dare you disrespect me
And I know it's just not possible
To understand about another man's pain
Are you selfish for wanting to leave?
Or am I for wanting you to stay?
I know it looks like a dead end
With no sign of revenge
But I know if you keep those legs goin'
You'll tread the water in the deep end
Just enough so your head breathes
Just enough so your eyes see
All those on dry land that are reaching out for you desperately
You think time ran out and you had enough
But think about what you do when you're leavin' us
You're takin' our lives with you brother
Maybe we need you more than you need us

Woa, brother you don't have to go
Woa, brother you don't have to go
Woa, brother you don't have to go
Woa, brother you don't have to go

Brother you don't
Brother you don't
Brother you don't
Brother you don't have to go
