Corrs – Stay ( You Say) lyrics

You say I only hear what I want to
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

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, anywhere
I don't understand if you really care
I'm only hearing negatives
No, no, no, no

So I turn the radio on
I turn 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
Some of us hover while we wait for the other
Who was dying since the day they were born
Well, this is not that I think that's it not 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
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 you let me go
You try to give away a keeper
Or keep me 'cause you know you're just so
Scared to loose
You say stay
You say I only hear what I want to
