Please don’t go, please don’t leave me.

A mirror is harder to hold

Jon Foreman

you could stay a while longer
we could stay up and talk about last summer
we could go down to the water
watch the sunset going under
it’s not that i’m a stranger to lonely moments
i’ve had my share of those

please don’t go
please don’t leave me alone
a mirror’s so much harder to hold

i could try and point the finger
but the glass points in my direction
sure, you’ve got your sharp edges
but my wounds are from my own reflection
you’ve got nothing i could ever hold against you
i’ve got fatal flaws to call my own

please don’t go
please don’t leave me alone
a mirror’s so much harder to hold

i met a man who’s looking for perfection
said he’d never met a girl who’s good enough
his eyes are getting old like they’d love to love again
such a lonely man
such a lonely man

i see him in my reflection
taking steps towards me these days
so i hold you that much closer
and pray we don’t throw this away
it’s not that i’m a man who couldn’t love you
i know what these arms are for

please don’t go
please don’t leave me alone
a mirror’s so much harder to hold
a mirror’s so much harder to hold
please don’t go
please don’t leave me cold
a mirror’s so much harder to hold
