In The Meantime Please Don’t Leave

It's not that I don’t see you
I'm just trying not to stare
but when I look over your way
It's your friends who fill you in

And it's not how it's supposed to be
I need a little more time you see
I need a little more time
To slow my heart beat down
I need a little more time
Before I come around
And in the meantime please don't leave

Just stay right there
I'll put me back just as I came
When I wasn't aware
That you could blow my mind away

And I need to recover from what discovered
Recover from the swelling up inside my heart
Which led to a transplant and a brand new start
And in the meantime please don't leave

It may sound funny but my heart rings out to you
These complications are nothing new


from Get Down (& more), released January 4, 2018
