Should I Go Away

Written By: Patrick Thomas

Should I Go Away @2002 Patrick Thomas

I look twice when I see you, I wonder where you’re from
It must be nice to be there, I wonder can I come

You seem to be so loving, love used to seem so far
Maybe when life gets cloudy, you’ll be my shining star

I don’t want to hold you back at all
But I don’t want to let you go, oh no
I don’t want to make life hard for you
I just want you to let me know
Should I, should I stay or go
Away, should I go away

I search for new beginnings, I know that they won’t last
All things must have an ending, but we still have the past

I think that what I’m saying is, I can’t tell right from wrong
In time we’ll see what happens, we’ll know before to long

I don’t want to hold you back at all
But I don’t want to let you go, oh no
I don’t want to make life hard for you
I just want you to let me know
Should I, should I stay or go
Away, should I go away

Should I go away to somewhere
So far away, in the atmosphere
And when I’m gone will you see I’m not there
And will you care

Maybe I’m not right for you
Maybe I’m not the one
I never want to hurt you
Maybe I should be gone

I don’t want to hold you back at all
But I don’t want to let you go, oh no
I don’t want to make life hard for you
I just want you to let me know
Should I, should I stay or go
Away, should I go away

I Don't Blame You

Written By: Patrick Thomas

I Don’t Blame You @Patrick Thomas 2001

You said that there was a time when I’d never let you down
You said I don’t have your back anymore cause you turn and look
I’m nowhere around
So now when I say hello you always say goodbye
We don’t seem to be the same anymore and you never look me in my eyes
What am I supposed to do I’ve got problems of my own
The hardest part of moving on is learning how to let things go

I don’t blame you at all
For changing my friend we are drifting apart
I don’t blame you at all
For changing my friend we are drifting apart

Then you said you need a job I tell you man no sweat
When you didn’t show up Monday morning When I ask you why you
Said you overslept

Then I saw your girl yesterday and she said that was all wrong
She said you passed out at her place drinking to many shots
And hits from the bong
You say I'm wasting all my time I said I’m writing hits
You say I don’t hang out anymore but
You’re always with that bitch

I don’t blame you at all
For changing my friend we are drifting apart
I don’t blame you at all
For changing my friend we are drifting apart
I don’t blame you at all
For changing my friend we are drifting apart
I don’t blame you at all
For changing my friend we are drifting apart

I don’t blame you at all
