Remain - Jennifer Nettles Band

Hang around, I don't have to make this one so heavy
Stick around, could I challenege or dare you to stay?
I just don't know what it is that makes me this wonderer
All I know is I was put here to be in love
and I want to remain that way

I am tired of this bile that fills up my belly
and even more of this fire that smokes in my eyes
All I want is a moment of peace
Peace without boredom
and to forever remain breathless

Could you for once say it even if you aren't sure
you've got the balls to stick it out?
Could you stop sticking to this plan
when you never have one day in your life?
If for nothing else, grant me this moment
to breathe, expand and let go
and to forever reamin breathless

You say "Trust me, trust me, I know when the time is best"
and I try my damnedest to make my voice sound like a smile
I swallow hard and I lie to you "Yes"
Because my heart is so full that it's pushing its way
Through these two ribs in my chest
But for now I'll force it to remain with my hand clutching my breast

Could you for once say it even if you aren't sure
you've got the balls to stick it out?
Could you stop sticking to this plan when you never have
One day in your life?
If for nothing else grant me this moment to breathe, expand, and let go
and to forever remain breathless
