"Stay Away" as written by and Dave Ellingson Kim Carnes....
She hangs up the phone and she
Lays wide awake
Holding onto the heart you, again will break
It's not that she's innocent
And she's not been defiled
Yes she picks up the phone, well
It's you who dialed

And I know she's tell you to stay
But please, stay away
Stay away
Stay away

I know this is heavy
I know I seem mad
But you're the one who laughs and runs while
She's standing sad
We both know where this going from your history
She again will fall in love
You again will leave.

And I know she's telling you to stay
But please, stay away
Stay away
Stay away

She wears her heart on her sleeve
Yeah she's crying her eyes out to me
Heaven or hell she will go through
Depends on you
Depends on you

    Song MeaningThis song is amazing. Just because of personal experience, I interpret this song to be about a girl who's best friend(a man) is in love with her, but she's been with a different man who's treating her wrong. He's being the best friend he can be and he's pleading with him to just leave her alone because it's hurting her to be with him, although she may not realize it.
    That's just one of the many ways you can take this song.
    Dave Barnes is an extremely talented lyricist.
