The Softies – If You Stayed lyrics

I felt so close to tears today
I had to take a walk
To make it go away
Wrapped up in your coat last night
I hooked your arm in mine
All in my mind

You're so close
You tell me something good
It's so hard to hide this like I should

I'm still so close to tears today
This walk is only taking me
Further away
To make you see me in a different light
I'd have to leave without saying goodbye

You're so near
You tell me something dear
It's only all the good things you fear
Maybe I should
Move away
You would only love me if you stayed
