Reason to Stay

Album: Beyond Repair (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • Vocalist Kaya Tarsus told Kerrang that this song was inspired by a real-life experience and is personal to him. He explained:

    "It's all about being unhappy in a new relationship and realising that you may have rushed into it all. You end up sticking around because you're feeling too guilty to call it off, but inside you're just want to detach yourself from a very emotionally attached person, and just end it all."
