Stay Away

For Natalie

You say you got a new guy
And I got a ten per cent chance
I say then fuck off and fly
Cause that's no way to measure romance

No blame 'bout how it must end
There's nothing that I could blame you for
But I don't know if I'll want you again
I'm not so sure anymore

Stay away if you think it's the end
Don't expect I'm forever your friend
You must decide what to do before long
So stay away till you see you've been wrong

I've been so happy these years
But I've been living a dream
Now I've awoken in tears
And seen just how wrong I have been

You were too good to be true
Which now you finally see
There's no use in fighting for you
No use in thinking of me

Stay away or you'll tear me apart
One love's end is another one's start
Take your time and find out what you want
But stay away for as long as you don't

These may be famous last words
This may be the dawning of truth
This may be the end of all hurt
This may be the start of all new

But if you've taught me a thing
It's never once to let myself fall
I won't surrender again
I'm not so sure anymore

Stay away or you'll tear me apart
One love's end is another one's start
We'll work it out when you know what you want
But stay away for as long as you don't
Stay away if you think it's the end
Don't expect I'm forever your friend
You must decide what to do before long
So stay away till you see you've been wrong
Stay away if you want me no more
Love him well or find out he's a bore
Call me up when you know what you want
But stay away for as long as you don't
