lyrics

Don’t go Jonathan,
Stay with me,
watch TV and be a housewife.

Promise me Jonathan,
Watch your step.
Don’t forget about the past.

And I, I, I’ll follow you down this road once more
Yes I, I, I’ll follow you down this road once more

I’ll admit it was a little bit silly but I don’t want to give up and leave you dead

Don’t go Jonathan,
Stay with me,
Watch TV and live a half-life.

I’m impressed that this mess,
Still exists,
We don’t forget easily.

And I, I, I’ll follow you down this road once more
Yes I, I, I’ll follow you down this road once more

I’ll admit it was a little bit silly but I don’t want to give up and leave you dead

I’ll admit it was a little bit silly but I don’t want to give up and leave you dead

Jonathan I’ve seen these things before,
It’s our future laid before us.
On top of this Jon, we’re scared of growing old,
But there were dinosaurs here before us

And I’m happy to be here.
