stay lyrics

You say
I only hear what I want to
And you say

I talk so all the time, so
And I thought what I felt was simple

And I thought that I don’t belong
And now that I am leaving

Now I know that I did something wrong
‘Cause I missed you

Yeah I missed you
And you say

I only hear what I want to
I don’t listen hard

I don’t pay attention
To the distance

That you’re running or to
Anyone anywhere

I don’t understand if you really care
I’m only hearing negative, no no no, bad

So I, I turned the radio on,
Iturned the radio up

And this woman was singing my song
Lovers in love and the other’s run away

Lover is crying ’cause the other won’t stay
And some of us hover when we weep

For the other who was dying
Since the day they were born, well

Well, this is not that
I think that I’m throwing

But I’m thrown
And I thought I’d live forever

But now I’m not so sure
You try to tell me that I’m clever

But that won’t take me anyhow
Or anywhere,
With you

And you said that I was naive
And I thought that I was strong

I thought, “hey, I can leave, I can leave”
Oh but now I know that I was wrong

‘Cause I missed you
Yeah, I missed you

You said, “you caught me cause you want me
And one day I’ll let you go”

You try to give away a keeper
Or keep me ’cause you know you’re just so

Scared to lose
And you say,


You say
I only hear what I want to
