Misery Monday 13/26 - Don't Change Your Plans Ben Folds Five



Bit of an extension from Last week's misery monday, this time rather than a sorrowful pleading , this time it is a goodbye letter and a sense of letting go.. "I love you goodbye". All hidden in a tune that bounces along with a breezy brass middle eight that could have come straight from a Bacharach and David tune.

It is the little details that paint the perfect picture the suitcase , the empty apartment , the sun going down and the pull of the east through the image of the falling leaves


Sometimes I get the feeling
That I won't be on this planet
For very long
I really like it here
I'm quite attached to it
I hope I'm wrong

All I really wanna say
Is you're the reason I wanna stay
I loved you before I met you
And I met you just in time
'Cause there was nothing left

I sat here on my suitcase
In our empty new apartment
Until the sun went down
Then I walked back down the stairs
With all my bags and drove away
You must be freaking out

All I know is I've gotta be
Where my heart says I oughta be
It often makes no sense In fact,
I never understand these things I feel

Don't change your plans for me
I won't move to LA
The leaves are falling back east
That's where I'm gonna stay

You have made me smile again
In fact, I might be sore from it
It's been a while
I know we've been together many times before
I'll see you on the other side

Don't change your plans for me
I won't move to LA
The leaves are falling back east
That's where I'm going to stay

All I really wanna say
Is you're the reason I wanna stay
But destiny is calling and won't hold
And when my time is up I'm outta here

All I know is I gotta be
Where my heart says I oughta be
It often makes no sense, in fact
I never understand these things,
I feel

I love you, good bye
I love you, good bye...
