Verse 1

Did you see me waving a sign that said

I was trash you needed to dump at a dustbin?

Or maybe you faked your English major,

You don't know what the word love means.

Pre-chorus

Now that it's been a month since you've gone,

I can finally see everything that would have been wrong

If you had stayed.

Chorus

If you had stayed,

Like I had prayed,

I would have been sitting in a foreign land all alone,

Staring at my phone,

Waiting for you to remember me.

If you had stayed,

Like I had prayed,

You would have been cold, my heart would have swelled,

I'd be so miserable,

Wanting desperately to break free.

Verse 2

You were right; we don't work out,

There are way too many things that we lack.

Glad you ran away, ditching me in pain,

Wish you had figured it out nine months back!

Pre-chorus

Now that it's been a month since you've gone,

I can finally see everything that would have been wrong

If you had stayed.

Chorus

If you had stayed,

Like I had prayed,

I would have been sitting in a foreign land all alone,

Staring at my phone,

Waiting for you to remember me.

If you had stayed,

Like I had prayed,

You would have been cold, my heart would have swelled,

I'd be so miserable,

Wanting desperately to break free.

Bridge

If you had stayed,

I wouldn't have been myself.

You made me hurt inside,

Too weak to even ask for help.

If you had stayed,

I'd have given up my dreams

And been your puppet

While you tugged hard at my strings!

Pre-chorus

Now that it's been a month since you've gone,

I can finally see everything that would have been wrong

If you had stayed.

Chorus

If you had stayed,

Like I had prayed,

I would have been sitting in a foreign land all alone,

Staring at my phone,

Waiting for you to remember me.

If you had stayed,

Like I had prayed,

You would have been cold, my heart would have swelled,

I'd be so miserable,

Wanting desperately to break free,

Away from my friends and my family,

While you were busy with your life,

Busy ignoring your wife.

Yeah, I'm glad I have been played.

Because, my life would have been wrecked

If you had stayed.
