"Stay Gone" as written by and Ryan Pope James Suptic....
I'll fawn over photographs
That you never would get to see
Swallow your own neglect
With your miserable company

Your daughter forgot her memories
Your daughter forgot her
Remember these

I'm over the precedent
Of a false security
No matter how I come back
You can never be proud of me

It's too long to stay gone
It's too long to stay gone

I don't regret what words were said
Deserved respect you never had
Watching the world keep falling around you
I don't expect your hand in this
Under duress and influence
Watching the world keep falling around you

I'll fawn over photographs
That you never would get to see
No matter how I come back
You can never be proud of me

It's too long to stay gone
It's too long to stay gone

I don't regret what words were said
Deserved respect you never had
Watching the world keep falling around you
I don't expect your hand in this
Under duress and influence
Watching the world keep falling around you

(around you, around you)
I don't regret what words were said
Deserved respect you never had
Watching the world keep falling around you

    General Commentone of my favorites. its about someone never being there for moments. and at first the person thought it was their faught that they didn't want to be there and tried to do things to change it but now they realize that the person just isn't worth any of their time and energy
