12 FLIGHTS UP

DON’T COME ANY CLOSER
I’M STANDING  ON THE LEDGE
I DON’T NEED YOU TO TELL ME 
THAT I’M TOO CLOSE TO THE EDGE.

I WANT TO TRY…TRY TO BELIEVE
BUT WE BOTH KNOW YOU LIE
PLEASE DON’T SAY ANOTHER  WORD
I DON’T WANT TO START TO CRY.

DON’T COME ANY CLOSER
STEP BACK …. PLEASE WALK AWAY
DON’T MAKE IT ANY WORSE FOR ME
THERE’S NOTHING  MORE TO SAY.

12 FLIGHTS UP …. 3 SECONDS DOWN
IT WON’T TAKE  ME VERY LONG
I’LL HOLD MY BREATH ….  I’LL SAY A PRAYER
BEFORE I HIT THE GROUND.

ONE STEP CLOSER, ONE STEP MORE
IT WON’T TAKE MUCH  TO  FORGET
I DON’T WANT TO REMEMBER
ALL THE THINGS THAT YOU HAD SAID.

NEVER DOUBTED FOR A MOMENT
THAT WE’D ALWAYS BE IN LOVE
HAD NO IDEA THAT THINGS HAD CHANGED
THAT YOU HAD GIVEN UP.

DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT
IT WOULD TAKE US WAY TOO LONG
DON’T WANT TO HAVE TO REMINISCE
ABOUT WHAT WE DID WRONG.

DON’T NEED AN EXPLANATION
NO REASON TO ASK WHY
GUESS IF IT IS MEANT TO BE
I’LL SIMPLY LEARN TO FLY.
