Better That They Stay – Ilana Charnelle

From the album A Class Act (2016)


 
I guess it had to end, so we saved ourselves the trouble

Could’ve been a year from now, but you chose today

You picked the perfect time, when my walls started to crumble

You came and reminded me it’s better that they stay
 

Oops, I wish I could have more sympathy

Could’ve made time for you if you made time for

Me, my dear, fear we’ve become enemies

I just wanted to be a priority
 

I like to play the fool, wish that I could kick the habit

But I still put the costume on and step right in to place

Been looking for someone to help with all my baggage

But you stayed in the laughing crowd, a big smile on your face
 

Oops, I wish I could have more sympathy

Could’ve made time for you if you made time for

Me, my dear, fear we’ve become enemies

I just wanted to be

Oops, I wish I could have more sympathy

Could’ve made time for you if you made time for

Me, my dear, fear we’ve become enemies

I just wanted to be a priority
 

I hate to say ‘karma’, but now you’re alone

And if you’re lonely, there’s nobody home

With no leg to stand on, no triumphant return

I waited so long my bridge started to burn

Started to burn
 

Oops, I wish I could have more sympathy

Could’ve made time for you if you made time for

Me, my dear, fear we’ve become enemies

I just wanted to be

Oops, I wish I could have more sympathy

Could’ve made time for you if you made time for

Me, my dear, fear we’ve become enemies

I just wanted to be a priority
