Verse 1

I remember calling you up yet again,

Crying through the gut wrenching pain,

"I take back everything I said,

Don't let us die this sudden death."

I remember the stone coldness in your tone,

While I broke down over the phone.

"My heart just can't, my mind is made,

You'll be fine, calm down, take deep breaths."

Chorus

And my following lonesome months were all spent,

Blaming it all on myself every day.

But I realized when I started to mend,

Had you loved me truly, you would have stayed.

You should have stayed,

You could have stayed,

You would have stayed.

Verse 2

No, don't act like you didn't know what you were,

Walking into at first, I swear,

I warned you, I'd get mad, I'd stay,

I'd scream out all I'd have to say.

And you promised me you'd never let me go,

Without a fight, so you should know,

When you gave up on our battle,

You killed my sweetest fairy-tale.

Chorus

And my following lonesome months were all spent,

Blaming it all on myself every day.

But I realized when I started to mend,

Had you loved me truly, you would have stayed.

You should have stayed,

You could have stayed,

You would have stayed.

Bridge

Cause that morning I was the girl of your dreams.

And suddenly, I turned to a monster that screams.

Excuses, we both have plenty.

Tried to find yours, came up empty.

Yet my following lonesome months were all spent,

Blaming it all on myself every day.

But I realized when I started to mend,

Had you loved me truly, you wouldn't have played.

Chorus

And my following lonesome months were all spent,

Blaming it all on myself every day.

But I realized when I started to mend,

Had you loved me truly, you would have stayed.

You should have stayed,

You could have stayed,

You would have stayed.

You should have stayed,

You could have stayed,

You would have stayed.
