Stay Away Lyrics

by Elliott Yamin

Took a year for me to figure out
How to live without you not around
I used to lie awake at night
Playing back the day you said goodbye
Remember when you walked out the door
Said you didn't want me anymore
Thought I'd never get over you
What'cha trying to do
Now that I finally got back on my feet
Then you start saying you've been missing me
And showing up at places I might be
Oh, don't take this personal girl

Stay away
There's only so much pain my heart can take
If you get too close you know
It's a touch and a kiss, then you're gone and I'm wishing
I never made this damn mistake
So baby please stay
Stay away from me

Now I don't need to hear what'cha think
So turn around and walk the other way
I can't believe that you can just pretend
Or make believe that we can still be friends
Now we both know that if we start this up
It won't be long before we're making love
And I don't wanna be burned again
Girl you had your chance
So if you really care for me at all
Don't look me in the eyes
Don't try to call
Just took your pictures down from off my wall
Don't get too close to me girl

Stay away
There's only so much pain my heart can take
If you get too close you know
It's a touch and a kiss, then you're gone and I'm wishing
I never made this damn mistake
So baby please stay
Stay away from me

I never wanted to be apart (you ruined my heart)
Don't wanna go back to the start (I've come too far)

Stay away
Oooh oh woh

Stay away
There's only so much pain my heart can take
If you get too close you know
It's a touch and a kiss, then you're gone and I'm wishing
I never made this damn mistake
So baby please stay
Stay away from me
(repeat)
