about

Sometimes the things you thought you wanted don't quite meet expectations. I'm guessing it really burns to give up on something/someone great to find what you thought you wanted was a real downgrade. Sometimes you recover, some choices are permanent. This song is from the perspective of the person left behind, the person who didn't get a choice in the matter.

lyrics

Could Not Stay
- T. Chesal/R. Johnson

I knew a girl one day
She said she could not stay
No, no she could not stick around

Hung up on a clock she'll stay
Riding time as you could say
But no she could not be let down

Still holding it strong
In my own way
Still holding it strong
Day after day

I met a girl today
Same girl but a different day
Same day when it all comes boiling down

Hung up in her mind she'll stay
Reads lines a different way
Explains the life she's built around her

Still holding it strong
In my own way
Still holding it strong
Day after day

Solo

I knew a girl one day
She said she could not stay
No, no she could not stick around

Hung up on a clock she'll stay
Riding time as you could say
But no she could not be let down

Still holding it strong
In my own way
Still holding it strong
Day after day
