Don’t Leave Me On Read

In the silence is a scene that plays in my mind

It’s like hoping for a train that might never arrive

It’s like setting an alarm when I’ve run out of time.

It’s like digging for a diamond by searching the sky

 

And I feel like I’m sleeping without waking or dreaming

Like I’m simply repeating the same page I’ve been reading.

And it feels like the meaning is not what I’m seeking

But I know what I meant.

Do you know what I meant?

 

Am I wasting my breath, am I wasting my life

If I’m waiting to see if you’ll come to my side?

As I restlessly sit on the words that I’ve said,

I’m begging you, baby, don’t leave me on read.

 

Like if blood frosted over and nipped at my nose

Like the Sun coming closer to check if it glows

I have lost my good reason and I hope it shows

Since I know what I sent.

Do you know what I meant?

 

Am I wasting my breath, am I wasting my life

If I’m waiting to see if you’ll come to my side?

As I restlessly sit on the words that I’ve said,

I’m begging you, baby, don’t leave me on read.

 

Am I wasting my breath, am I wasting my time

If I’m waiting to see if the stars would align?

To the heavens I have but one meager request

Please give me an answer, don’t leave it unsaid.

Oh give me an answer, don’t leave me on read.
