Lyrics



If I see my old friends, we'll go out dancing

If we go out dancing, then we'll go to the bar

If we go to the bar, then there's gonna be drinking

If I drink, I wanna see where you are

So I don't see my old friends, I don't go dancing

I don't do most things I used to do

Actually, now that I'm thinking about it

I did most things to get to you



No one ever told me leaving was the easy part

I gotta stay away

Leaving you was easy, now I gotta do what's hard

I gotta stay away



Stay away, stay, stay away

Stay away, stay, stay away



If I go driving, then I'll put on music

If I put on music, then I'll play your song

If I play your song, then I think I'll lose it

End up pulled up at the front of your lawn

So I don't go driving, no, I just stay in

I don't do most things I used to do

'Cause every moment is a fork in the road

And all my roads lead back to you (You, you, you)



No one ever told me leaving was the easy part

I gotta stay away

Leaving you was easy, now I gotta do what's hard

I gotta stay away



Stay away, stay, stay away

Stay away, stay, stay away



If I turn off the light, then I might start thinking

If I start thinking, I'll think of the time when

You said that you love me, you said I was perfect

You said you were sorry, you said you were selfish

If I don't stop it, before I know it

All the bad things never happened

You never lied or treated me bad and

If you did, then you'll wish you hadn't

Start believing you were right and

I was being too dramatic

So I gotta leave the light on for tonight

Just so I can stay away



No one ever told me leaving was the easy part

I gotta stay away

Leaving you was easy, now I gotta do what's hard

I gotta stay away

Any little misstep, I'll be at your doorstep

Talking 'bout forgiveness, giving you my heart back

Just so you can break it one more time before I say

I gotta stay away



Stay away, stay, stay away

Stay away, stay, stay away

Stay away, stay away

Stay away, stay, stay away
