    Lyrics

    Doesn't it ever stay
    Must it always fade away
    Couldn't love ever be
    Something tangible and real
    Farewell, fairweather 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
    Once more into the wind
    The embers scatter
    And the chill settles in

    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

    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
