Chris Cayzer – Stay lyrics

You say I only hear what I want to
And you say I talk so all the time so, so
And I thought what I felt was simple
And I know that I don't belong
And now that I am leavin'
I know that I did something wrong 'cause I missed you
Yeah yeah yeah, I missed you
And you say I only hear what I want to, I don't listen hard
Don't pay attention to the distance that you're running to anyone or anywhere
I don't understand if you really care
I'm only hearing negative, no, no, no, there
So I turned the radio on, I turned the radio up
And this guy was singin' my song
Lover's in love and the other's run away
Lover is crying 'cause the other won't stay
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 throwin' 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
You said that I was naive and I thought that I was strong, oh
I thought, "hey, I can leave, I can leave"
Oh, but now I know that I was wrong 'cause I missed you
Yeah yeah yeah, I missed you
You said you called 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
You say, "stay"
You say, "I only hear what I want to"
