All You Had To Do Was Stay

People like you always want back
The love they gave away
And people like me wanna believe you
When you say you’ve changed

The more I think about it now
The less I know
All I know is that you drove us
Off the road

(Stay) Hey, all you had to do was
Stay, had me in the palm of your hand
Then why’d you have to go
And lock me out, when I let you in

(Stay) Hey, now you see you want it
Back, now that it’s just too late
Well, it could’ve been easy
All you had to do was stay

All you had to do was stay
All you had to do was stay
All you had to do was stay
All you had to do was stay

Here you are now, calling me up
But I don’t know what to say
I’ve been picking up the pieces
Of the mess you made

People like you always want back
The love they pushed aside
People like me are gone forever
When you say goodbye

(Stay) Hey, all you had to do was
Stay, had me in the palm of your hand
Then why’d you have to go
And lock me out, when I let you in

(Stay) Hey, now you see you want it
Back, now that it’s just too late
Well, it could’ve been easy
All you had to do was stay

All you had to do was stay
All you had to do was stay
All you had to do was stay

Let me remind you
This was what you wanted
(You ended it)
You were all I wanted
(But not like this)

Not like this, not like this
Oh, all you had to do was

(Stay) Hey, all you had to do was
Stay, had me in the palm of your hand
Then why’d you have to go
And lock me out, when I let you in

(Stay) Hey, now you see you want it
Back, now that it’s just too late
Well, it could’ve been easy
All you had to do was stay

All you had to do was stay
All you had to do was stay
All you had to do was stay
All you had to do was stay
