Stay (I Missed You)

Stay (I Missed You) by Lisa Loeb (1994)

You say I only hear what I want to
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 ’cause 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
or to anyone, anywhere
I don’t understand if you really care
I’m only hearing negative: no, no, no!

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
the lover is crying ’cause 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, 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.”
but now I know that I was wrong, ’cause I missed you.

You said, “You caught me ’cause you want me and one day you’ll let me go.”
You try to give away a keeper, or keep me ’cause you know you’re just so scared to lose
And you say, “Stay.”

You say I only hear what I want to…
