I Only Wanted Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Doesn't it ever stay, must it always fade away?
Couldn't love ever be something tangible and real?
Farewell, fair weather friend
Abandonment returns to taunt me again

I only wanted you to stay
Linger and mean the words you said
Foolishly I romanticized
Someone was saving my life for the first time
I only wanted you to be there when I opened up my eyes

I was caught in your masquerade wish I'd stayed beneath my veil
But it just seemed so easy to open up myself to you
Oh once more into the wind the embers scatter
And the chill settles in

I, I only wanted you to stay
Linger and mean the words you said
Foolishly I romanticized
Someone was saving my life for the first time
I only wanted you to be there when I opened up my eyes, eyes

Oh I only wanted you to stay
Linger and mean the words you said
Foolishly I romanticized
Someone was saving my life for the first time
I only wanted you to be the one to get me through that night
I only wanted you to be there when I opened up my eyes

Oh doesn't it ever stay?
I only wanted you to stay
