Don't Stay Lyrics

Play "Don't Stay"
on Amazon Music

Sometimes I need to remember just to breathe
Sometimes I need you to stay away from me
Sometimes I’m in disbelief I didn’t know
Somehow I need you to go

[Chorus:]
Don’t stay
Forget our memories
Forget our possibilities
What you were changing me...

    It's really about anybody going through a crappy relationship and then everything has fallen apart. I myself just went through a nasty break up and fights following after the break up and being accused for something I didn't do... Yeah it's about the frustration and heartbreak, by wanting the old life back from a long painful relationship.

    It's a song about being smothered by your partner and sick of them being there after everything they've done to you, including cheating on you ("take all your faithlessness with you").

    I think it's about when someone hurts you, you're so angry and want them gone. You want to forget about them, and you want them to get out. I can relate, I had someone who hurt me badly and got rid of all of their pictures and stuff.

    I don't know i can see the whole break up thing , i know what it feels like. not long ago i had my heart riped out; so i can see a point of veiw from that. but i can also see a point of view from another angle , my friends have recently betryed me , lied to me and there hard to trust. i just want to forget and move on. so it has a double meaning for me

    I think this song is about how Chester (lead singer) is frustrated with his wife/girlfriend and wants her to get out.

    okay, this song is about a heartbreak but it didn't sounds like someone who got dumped.

    it's obviously, about someone who changed 180 degrees because of going out with his gf/her bf..

    "Sometimes I need to remember just to breathe
    Sometimes I need you to stay away from me
    Sometimes Im in disbelief I didnt know
    Somehow I need you to go

    Dont stay forget our memories
    Forget our possibilities
    Take all your faithlessness with you
    Just give me myself back and dont stay

    Sometimes I feel like I trusted you too well
    Sometimes I just feel like screaming at myself
    Sometimes Im in disbelief I didnt know
    Somehow I need to be alone"

    see? narrator's lover just too overprotective and thought the world is just for the two of them, when the narrator also has his/her own world before.. the lover made the narrator to ignore/forsake what he/she had..

    you know, it feels like that you have a life, a very important life before, and someone come and then interfere, interrupt you and your life..

    let see the last verse :

    "I dont need you anymore I dont want to be ignored
    I dont need one more day of you wasting me away
    I dont need you anymore I dont want to be ignored
    I dont need one more day of you wasting me away
    (With no apologies)"

    Narrator doesn't want to be ignored by his/her friend (his/her world or even life) and he/she felt wasted all of this time.. the narrator just wants to go back to his/her early life where his/her life go back to normal...

    "i don't need you" is the strong phrase that made me realize who has the power, the narrator or his/her lover ?

    thanks for reading, hope you enjoy the song well :D
