"He who forgets, will be destined to remember..."

Matchbox Twenty - Stop

Yes it’s true that I believe I’m weaker than I used to be—I wear my heart out on my sleeve, oh and I forget the rest of me.

Yes there’s times I’ve been afraid and there’s no harm in that, I pray, ‘cause I’m more frightened everyday—someone will take the hope I have away.

But you’ve gotta give it up to get off sometimes,
you gotta give it up to get off sometimes,
you’ve gotta give it up to get off sometimes, I know…
....

All the times I’ve given in, (one by one I…)
you’ve fit me like a second skin (one by one I…).
One by one I will begin to wear you on the days I’m feeling thin.

But you’ve gotta give it up to get off sometimes,
you gotta give it up to get off sometimes,
you’ve gotta give it up to get off sometimes, I know…
....

You better stop…
stop… stop… using me up
you better stop, ‘cause I’ve had enough and I’m ready to forget the reasons keeping me here.

Walk in the rain.. you will even if you’re never gonna change..
Good god, need a little love while you find what you think you’re gonna be, child.

Yeah you better stop…
stop… stop… using me up
you better stop, ‘cause I’ve had enough and I’m ready to forget the reasons—oh the reasons—keeping me here.
