Sung by Minneapolis-based singer Chandler Holman


I don’t want you to leave me
I don’t want you to stay
I want you forever
But just not today
I know you can’t hear me
When I’ve got nothing to say
But I need you to see me
Even when I’m far away
Sometimes I go missing
My mind goes astray
I’m awake in the night
And I’m so dead in the day
I know I can choose it
It’s not like there’s only one way
But I’m afraid if I lose it
Maybe I won’t be the same
And that’s why I stay

All alone, even when I’m right next to you
All alone, I’m thinking you feel it, too
All alone, I wish there was something I could do

When you stand in the middle
You see every side
And they see you back
In every crack you try to hide
I wish I had something to run to
But I’ve got no spaces left to fill
My escape never ends
And I won’t rest until
I no longer feel

I don’t want you to leave me
I want you to stay
But I told you I loved you
And you looked away.
