All You Had to Do Was Stay is from Taylor Swift's fifth album, 1989.

Lyrics

(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

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 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, stay, stay, stay

Let me remind you, this was what you wanted

You ended it, you were all I wanted

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?

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

(Repeat chorus)
