Don't Ask Me
Lyrics by K M Brierley 2020

First time is a mistake, the second time is a decision
Dunno how much I can take, it's time to make a revision

Chorus:
I just need to push on through and face the fact I'm losing you
I just need to make the break because my mental health's at stake
I just need to make a stand, my love is slipping through your hands
I just need to start again, don't ask me to stay your friend, no!

First cut is the deepest, the second cut leaving a scar
This lonely sense of bleakness makes me see how cold you are (you're so cold)

I just need to push on through and face the fact I'm losing you
I just need to make the break because my mental health's at stake
I just need to make a stand, my love is slipping through your hands
I just need to start again, don't ask me to stay your friend, no!

First word is the hardest, the second word follows goodbye
Our time together is tarnished so I'm moving on with my life (I'm so moving on)

I just need to push on through and face the fact I'm losing you
I just need to make the break because my mental health's at stake
I just need to make a stand, my love is slipping through your hands
I just need to start again, don't ask me to stay your friend, no!

Just don't ask me to stay your friend
Just don't ask me to stay your friend
Just don't ask me to stay your friend
Just don't ask me to stay your friend
