lyrics

I'm not a conversational person, but the people come up to me
They like to tell me the stories that they saw on the TV
I haven't the heart to tell them that nothing they've heard is true
The screens behind the windows never show the current news

And as I make my way out of the streets
Up your old driveway even though I know your pleas
The floor creaks upon entry, alerting that I'm there
Leaving me totally vulnerable to your cutting glass stare

I stayed
Even though I said I'd go home
I stayed
I couldn't leave you all alone
I stayed
And you didn't believe in me
I stayed

First you throw the potted plants; then you throw the vase
I shudder at the thought of other things that you could break
And as I see the shards of specked blue, magenta, and green
I know that any other person would just leave the scene

But I stayed
Even though I said I'd go home
I stayed
I couldn't leave you all alone
I stayed
And you didn't believe in me
I stayed
