You showed up on time last night 
But I left before the sun could rise 

You ate every single bite 
But I just drank the wine 

And I won't hold 
The lilies you gave to me 
I won't smile 
In the photo you take of me 
I won't get in my head 
You're just another new man in my bed 
And I like sleeping alone 

You brought me your Vonnegut 
But I put that book on the shelf 

'Cause I won't hold 
The lilies you gave to me 
Or smile 
In the photo you take of me 
I won't get in my head 
I've had plenty good men in my bed 
And I'm still sleeping alone 

I can't do it, I can't go through it 
Just won't do it, I won't go through it again 
But lying here with you 
I know I'll miss you if you leave 
So don't do it 
I want to go through it 

I will hold 
The lilies you gave to me 
I will smile 
In the photo you take of me 
I'll try not to get in my head 
As I start to fall for you in my bed 
Let's stop sleeping alone
