You Will Not Stay

Air This Side of Caution

 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

I thought you knew you were mine
The other night, we sealed our fate in the bed we made
Couldn't read your mind
All laid out; a picture of you
On your bed there was a spread of all you've read
The poison of truth

All the movies and CDs stare at me
A wall of your life
And now you're telling me that what you need
Is so very different from what I am

And now you will not stay
No matter if I should say
That when I slept breathing the nape of your neck
It was the only time I felt awake

All your tears are sweet like saline
They streak your face but can't displace all your grace
You float like a queen

All the words we have heard are so absurb
But I think you believe just a bit
In love's receipe, there's no guarantee and the warranty
Expires as soon as you stray

And now you will not stay
No matter if I should say
That I hoped you'd be the one I would hold
As we laid and watched each other grow old
Now my love will be buried untold
Because I can't let it go
