Don't Change Your Plans - Ben Folds Five

sometimes I get the feeling
that I won't be on this planet
for very long
I really like it here
I'm quite attached to it
I hope I'm wrong
all I really wanna say:
you're the reason I wanna stay
I loved you before I met you
and I met you just in time
'cause there was nothing left

I sat here on my suitcase
in our empty new apartment
'til the sun went down
and I walked back down the stairs
with all my bags and drove away
you must be freaking out

all I know's I gotta be
where my heart says I oughta be
it often makes no sense, in fact
I never understand these things I feel

don't change
your plans
for me
I won't
move to
L.A.
the leaves
are falling
back east
that's where I'm going to stay

you have made me smile again
in fact, I might be sore from it
it's been awhile
I know we've been together
many times before
I'll see you on
the other side

but don't change
your plans
for me
I won't
move to
L.A.
the leaves
are falling
back east
that's where I'm going to stay

all I really wanna say:
you're the reason I wanna stay
but destiny is calling and won't hold
and when my time is up
I'm outta here

all I know's I gotta be
where my heart says I oughta be
it often makes no sense, in fact
I never understand these things
I feel

I love you, goodbye
I love you, goodbye...
