Stay

Location

Thoughts are racing through her mind

When you ask her if she's all right

All she says is, "I'm fine"

 

You shake your head and reply, "okay"

The silence echoes in your brain

There's nothing else to say

That's why you choose to walk away

 

You should have looked in her eyes

Maybe you would have seen the pain

Don't you know how much she is suffering

 

All she needed was someone to listen

You should have stayed

Instead you chose to walk away
