When you turn and walk away
I swear I can see forever
When I hear the things you say
You know they stay with me forever
And then you cry, though I never shed a tear
And then you cry, you tell me stay away from here
I ask you why, but you never, never say
And so I say, I said I’ll stay, I’ll stay away

When I pay you compliments
You always prefer if I don’t say
So its no coincidence that I get so carried away
And then you cry, no I never shed a tear
And then you cry, you tell me stay away from here
I asked you why, but you never, never say
And so I say, I said I’ll stay, I’ll stay away

Remember when I kissed your lips
They were soft and so familiar
Then you go and tell me this
Oh that you really meant to kill her
And then you cry, no I never shed a tear
And then you cry, you tell me stay away from here
Well I ask you why, but you never, never say
Oh yeah
And so I say, I say I’ll stay, I’ll stay away

Hey!
I say I’ll stay away
And then I say
Oh, that I’ll stay away
And then I pray that I, I stay away
I said I’ll stay away
I’ll stay away
Oh, I’ll stay away
I’ll stay away
I’ll stay away

    General CommentI have no idea, but I'm guessing when he says "Oh that you really meant to kill her" that she only kissed him to bother some other girl. Now he's in love, but she wants him to get lost. Maybe she's crying because she feels guilty? Maybe she accuses him of being in love, but she is the one who is crying, not him. He's thinking she is love, but won't admit it.
