And baby, why don't you just stay?
I'll sing you songs in bed all day
And I'll give you blankets just to keep you warm
Anything to keep you away from that door
But I can't keep you away

And now I know it, why you got to go
I was just hoping that I could say no
A kiss goodbye, and she don't touch my lips
Just walk away and then my stomach twists
Don't go, don't go
Baby, please don't go

And keep walking away
(Keep walking away)
Start your car like you mean it this time
And I'll watch you from behind my bedroom window
As you're pulling away
I only wished that you would stay
But you don't

And I came to see you and I should have known
A wasted plane ticket to Ohio
We're sleeping naked
I'm the one you chose
But who else see's you in this bed
Without your clothes?

I never believed a word you said
(You still don't)
I still don't

And you're so clever with the way you think
I'll never know it didn't mean a thing
And a kiss goodbye, and she don't touch my lips
Well, just walk away, cause I don't need that shit

Keep walking away
(Keep walking away)
And start your car like you mean it this time
And I'll watch you from behind my bedroom window
As you're pulling away
I only wished that you could stay
I only wish that you would...

And come and whisper in my ear
"If I don't come back, come and find me."
Always leave to make a scene
Pretty eyes, the joke's on me

Come and whisper in my ear
"If I don't come back, come and find me."
Always leave to make a scene
Pretty eyes, the joke's on...

Keep walking away
And start your car like you mean it this time
And I'll watch you from behind my bedroom window
As you're pulling away
I only wished that
I always wish
I only wish that you would stay
I only wish that you would stay, yeah

Keep walking
Keep walking
Keep walking
Keep walking
And keep walking away

Right now, your voice would shut me down
So shut me down
Right now, your voice would shut me down
So shut me down now

    General Commentfirst off, i am in love with archie star's album. this one mighttt be my favourite so far.

    anyway, this song is definitely about a relationship that's running on empty and coming to a halt. she realizes that there isn't anything left for either of them, but it seems he's not ready to let go just yet. they both still care about each other, which is why it's so hard to part ways. they've probably almost broken up several times & been having issues. as he watches her start the car and leave, part of him believes and hopes that maybe it'll be like all the other times--she'll end up staying. when she's finally gone, he gives a final effort to save their relationship & goes to ohio to see her. he realizes that her words don't have meaning in them anymore & she is loveless. they sleep together one night on his visit, but he comes to face the reality that he is not her only one anymore. this wasted trip finally seals the end of their relationship.

    General CommentObviously its remembering a past relationship that no longer has the same spark it once did.

    i absolutely love this song. and its a sick reference to Entourage with the name and in the beginning when he says the line from Queens Boulevard. Just totally in love with this song.
