Lyrics:

Hey hey hey hey
Hey hey hey hey
Hey hey hey hey
Hey hey hey

People like you always want back the love they gave away
And people like me wanna believe you when you say you've changed
The more I think about it now, the less I know
All I know is that you drove us off the road

Stay
Hey, all you had to do was stay
Had me in the palm of your hand
Then why'd you have to go and lock me out when I let you in
Stay, hey, now you say you want it
Back now that it's just too late
Well, it could've been easy
All you had to do was stay

All you had to do was stay
All you had to do was stay
All you had to do was stay
All you had to do was stay

Here you are now, calling me up, but I don't know what to say
I've been picking up the pieces of the mess you made
People like you always want back the love they pushed aside
But people like me are gone forever when you say goodbye

Stay
Hey, all you had to do was stay
Had me in the palm of your hand
Then why'd you have to go and lock me out when I let you in
Stay, hey, now you say you want it (now you say you want it back)
Back now that it's just too late (just too late)
Well, it could've been easy
All you had to do was stay

All you had to do was stay
All you had to do was stay
(All you had to do was) All you had to do was stay

Let me remind
You this was what you wanted (ah ah ah ah ah)
You ended it
You were all I wanted (ah ah ah ah ah)
But not like this
Not like this
Not like this
Oh, all you had to do was stay

Hey, all you had to do was stay
Had me in the palm of your hand
Then why'd you have to go and lock me out when I let you in
(why'd you have to go and lock me out when I let you in)
Stay, hey, now you say you want it (back)
Back now that it's just too late
Well, it could've been easy
All you had to do was stay

Hey, all you had to do was stay (ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ahhhhhhh ahhhhhhh ahhh)
Had me in the palm of your hand
Then why'd you have to go and lock me out when I let you in
Stay, hey, now you say you want it (ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ahhhhhhh ahhhhhhh ahhh)
Back now that it's just too late
Well, it could've been easy (All you had to do was easy)
All you had to do was stay

All you had to do was stay (ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ahhhhhhh ahhhhhh)
All you had to do was stay (ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ah)
All you had to do was stay
All you had to do was stay
