Verse 1

Summer fling, he's such a great catch.

Two years later, it's a screaming match.

Neighbors dialing nine one one.

Friends shouting, girl, better run.

Verse 2

Broken beer bottle in the trash can.

He swears he'll be a better man,

Swears he won't let you go away,

Brings you flowers that Tuesday.

Chorus

And you stay, because he's promised to make it alright.

You stay, because he says sorry after every single fight.

You stay, because when your life gets dark he's your light.

You stay, because you can't live with him out of your sight.

Verse 3

Right or wrong, you don't really know.

You try to pick up your stuff and go.

But he's on his knees, crying.

"Baby, can't you see I'm trying?"

Verse 4

Dinner after a perfectly romantic movie.

He's everything you ever wanted to be.

And you smile at him again.

He's acting like the gentlemen.

Chorus

And you stay, because he's promised to make it alright.

You stay, because he says sorry after every single fight.

You stay, because when your life gets dark he's your light.

You stay, because you can't live with him out of your sight.

Bridge

Friends disapprove, you pay them no heed.

You know you're probably being stupid.

But you don't care, because he's all that you need.

Chorus

And you stay, because he's promised to make it alright.

You stay, because he says sorry after every single fight.

You stay, because when your life gets dark he's your light.

You stay, because you can't live with him out of your sight.
