Dave Barnes – Stay Away lyrics

She hangs up her phone
And she lays wide awake
Holdin' onto the heart that again will break
It's not that she's innocent
She's not defied
Yeah, she picks up the phone but it's you dialed
And I know that she's telling you to stay

But please
Stay away (3x)

I know this is heavy and
I know I seem mad
But you're the one who laughs and runs
While she's standing sad
We both know where this goin'
Your history
She come and fall in love
But you can't believe

And I know she's telling you to
Please stay away (2x)

She wears her heart on her sleeve
She's cryin' her eyes out to me
Heaven or Hell that she'll go through
Depends on you
Depends on you
