Stay Away

Album: True Romance (2013)
  • You choke my throat
    With words of wonder
    You make it hard to breathe
    Your love's so cold
    Just like an arrow
    Pierced through my skin I bleed

    I knew you were no angel
    But God, what did I do? oh oh oh

    Do you remember what I said
    That first time we met?
    Stay away, why couldn't you stay away?
    I never needed anyone
    But now that you are gone
    Stay away, won't you just stay away

    Taking all my light and blocking out my vision
    Bad little girl you have trapped in the prison
    On my hands on my knees pulled on the chains
    Licking up the blood yeah I made this decision

    You took my light
    Trapped in the prison
    You threw away the key
    You are the curse
    I am the captive
    Walking on hands and knees
    Never learn, never learn, never learn, never learn

    I knew you were no angel
    But God, you're just electric blue oh oh oh

    Do you remember what I said
    That first time we met?
    Stay away, why couldn't you stay away?
    I never needed anyone
    But now that you are gone
    Stay away, won't you just stay away

    Stay away, stay away, stay away, stay away, stay away
    Stay away, stay away, stay away, stay away, stay away
    Stay away, stay away, stay away, stay away, stay away
    Stay away, stay away, stay away, stay away, stay away

    I climbed a wall
    To touch your shadow
    I hear you call for me
    But you're not there
    You're just an echo
    Why did you fall for me?

    Do you remember what I said
    That first time we met?
    Stay away, why couldn't you stay away?
    I never needed anyone
    But now that you are gone
    Stay away, won't you just stay away

    Taking all my light and blocking out my vision
    Bad little girl you have trapped in the prison
    Stay away, why couldn't you stay away?
    Taking all my light and blocking out my vision
    Bad little girl you have trapped in the prison
    Stay away, won't you just stay away Writer/s: Ariel Rechtshaid, Justin Raisen, Charlotte Emma Aitchison
