Stay I Missed You

You say
I only hear what I want to
And you say
I talk so all the time so
And I thought what
I felt was simple
and I thought that
I don't belong
And now that I am leaving
now I know that
I did something wrong
'Cos I missed you
yeah, I missed you
And you say
I only hear what I want to
I don't listen hard
I don't pay attention to the
distance that you're running
to anyone, anywhere
I don't understand
if you really care
I'm only hearing
negative, no, no, but
So I turned the radio on
I turned the radio up
and this woman
was singing my song
The lover's in love
and the other's run away
and lover is crying
'cos the other won't stay
Some of us hover when
we weep for the other who
was dying since the day
they were born
Well, well, this is not that
I think that I'm throwing
but I'm thrown
And I thought I'd live forever
but now I'm not so sure
you try to tell me
that I'm clever
But that won't take
me anyhow
or anywhere with you
You said that I was naive
and I thought that
I was strong
I thought, hey
I can leave, I can leave
Oh, but now I know
that I was wrong
'Cos I missed you
yeah, I missed you
You said you caught me
'cos you want me
and one day you'll let me go
You try to give away a keeper
or keep me 'cos you know
you're just so scared to lose
And you say stay
You say
I only hear what I want to
You say
I only hear what I want to
And you say
I talk so all the time so
And I thought what
I felt was simple
and I thought that
