  • You better stay, stay on your side of town
    Because I'm done, done with all this breaking down
    One last time you're gonna hear me out
    You better stay, stay on your side of town
    Don't want your headlights on my road
    Door to my heart is closed
    If you can hear that train running down the tracks
    You're way too close

    There's an a no-trespass sign on the country line and it reads your name
    You better just pretend there's a barbwire fence and a barricade
    Stay on your side of town, stay on your side of town
    Stay off my stomping grounds, stay on your side of town

    Ain't got no time for your apologies
    I tore your page out of my biography
    You'll never do again what you did to me
    Ain't got no time, time for your apologies
    This place ain't big enough, baby, for the both of us
    You had your chance to have my love
    And screwed it up

    There's an a no-trespass sign on the country line and it reads your name
    You better just pretend there's a barbwire fence and a barricade
    Stay on your side of town, stay on your side of town
    Stay off my stomping grounds, stay on your side of town

    Don't want your headlights on my road
    Door to my heart is closed
    If you can hear that train running down the tracks
    You're way too close

    There's an a no-trespass sign on the country line and it reads your name
    You better just pretend there's a barbwire fence and a barricade
    Stay on your side of town, stay on your side of town
    Stay off my stomping grounds, stay on your side of town Writer/s: Blair Daly, Heather Lynn Morgan, Maddie Marlow, Taylor Dye
