Don't Stay

  • Lately I've been thinking
    You've seen the worst and you've seen it in me
    I gave you every reason
    Every reason to get up and leave

    I know that there's times
    That you get so tired
    And you know I want you to stay

    But don't stay for me
    Don't stay for me
    If you got to leave
    Do what you need
    But don't stay for me
    Don't stay for me

    Baby, I've been thinking
    That you've been hurt and it's because of me
    Oh woah, oh woah
    Baby, my ship is sinking
    So don't go over, don't try to save me

    I know that there's times
    That you get so tired
    And you know I want you to stay

    But don't stay for me
    Don't stay for me
    If you got to leave
    Do what you need
    But don't stay for me
    Don't stay for me
    Don't stay for me
    Don't stay for me

    Oh woah, oh woah
    Oh woah, oh woah

    Don't stay for me
    If you got to leave
    Do what you need
    But don't stay for me
    Don't stay for me
    Don't stay for me
    Don't stay for me Writer/s: Sam Harris, Ryan B Tedder, Zachary Skelton
