And I stayed
I stayed because I wanted to show you I was strong
I stayed because I was scared of being replaced
I stayed because I thought you'd change
I stayed because, what would I tell people?
I stayed because you were always the first to apologise
I stayed because I was ashamed of me
And stay I did
And the blows became bigger and better
And your friends started following the leader
And my friends got tired of my deaf ear and cut me out
I was alone
No, I still had you...
And stay I did...
Till my eyes could see no more
Till my arms could shield no more
Till my legs could run no more
I stayed till my grave became too small
For better for worse we said?
Then I deserve a grammy
I should have walked out of that door the moment you raised your hand
But I stayed to prove a point
So when you read my eulogy
Don't forget to tell them...
They all need to know
