Say Something Before I Take Your Silence As Goodbye

Send me the letter before my address changes
Tell me your words before someone else does
Don’t leave when you want to stay
Get closer before I move away

Tell me about the days you thought of me
And the nights you missed me
Tell me about all times you wished I was there
And the times you thought I didn’t care

For once, don’t hold back
Forget about the rules
Don’t think about what could go wrong
You know we don’t live for too long

For once, don’t delete the message
Please press send
For once, get it all off your chest
And let’s put all doubt to rest

But say something before I stop listening
Before I take your silence as goodbye 
Look me in the eye and tell me everything
We never know what tomorrow may bring

But if you have a letter, send it
Because if I change my address
I might never come back
Because leaving is a one-way track

If you have a message, send it
Before I change my number
Do something and let me know how you feel
Before time goes by and someone else seals the deal.  Thought Catalog Logo Mark
