  • Lyrics: HELL TO GO Music and Lyrics by Chris Koch Took a cab ‘cause somethin' in your voice said "Now!" And I paid with dimes that I saved somehow And you made me promise to spend the night And I said I would knowing it’s not right And oh… Hell to stay, Hell to go Tried to run but I felt run down So I tried to walk but I just walked around And you made a promise -- you wouldn’t call But it didn’t last and you you knew I’d fall And oh… Hell to stay, Hell to go Oh… Hell to pay for each “Hello” Not like love that you dream about I just can’t get up and I can’t get out Can’t call me faithful -- can't say I'm devout I just can’t get up and I can’t get out Guess I’m not what I thought I was And I needed more than a "just because" And you made a promise to not hold back And it spoiled my heart and my soul’s gone black And oh… Hell to stay, Hell to go Oh… Which Hell’s worse I’ll never know Not like love that gets preached about I just can’t get up and I can’t get out Can’t call me faithful -- can't say I'm devout I just can’t get up and I can’t get out I can’t get up and I can’t get out
