  • In life, just belong, though you're a wanderin' soul
    And you got to move on from the squandered soil
    When you get what you came here for
    Will you leave in the dead of night?
    In the heart is a wall of horrors
    You're the undenied

    Can't return the sacred time you steal
    A fact betrays the way you feel
    And the sight delays the right to heal
    You decide to stay long

    I didn't plan to stay long
    I didn't plan to stay long (stay long)
    I didn't plan to stay long
    I didn't plan to stay long (stay long)
    In the snake pit so long
    I've got posters up (stay long)
    Been defending so long
    I don't know how to stop

    Heart, tell them what you came for
    Heart, tell them what you came for
    Heart, tell them what you've been daydreamin' about
    What the evening's about to you

    Can't return the sacred time you steal
    A fact betrays the way you feel
    And the sight delays the right to heal
    You decide to stay long

    I didn't plan to stay long
    I didn't plan to stay long (stay long)
    I didn't plan to stay long
    I didn't plan to stay long (stay long)
    In the snake pit so long
    I've got posters up (stay long)
    I've been defending so long
    I don't know how to stop
    I'm so afraid

    Tell them what you came for
    Heart, tell them what you came for
    Heart, tell them what you've been daydreamin' about
    What the evening's about to you

    Ah, ah
    Ah
    Ah, ah
    Tell them what you came here for (ah, ah)
    Oh, oh, oh, stay long
    Oh, oh, oh, stay long
    Oh, oh, oh, stay long
    Oh-oh-oh-oh, long Writer/s: Allen Ritter, James Blake, Leland Tyler Wayne, Moses Frimpong Sumney
