Better That They Stay – Ilana Charnelle

From the album A Class Act (2016)

Na num, na na un do, da da dun da da dum
Da dum, da da uh un do
Na da dum

I guess it had to end, so we saved ourselves the trouble
It could’ve been a year from now, but you chose today
You picked the perfect time, as my walls started to crumble
You came and reminded me it’s better that they stay

Na na un do

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

Uh oh, uh uh mm
Na na dum na na num
Da da da na na nuh do

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

Ooh

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

Uh uh, ooh

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

Oh um, oh um
I just wanted to be a priority
Oh oh, oh oh
I just wanted to be

Your postcard from the past; a vintage inspired crooner straight from the heydays of traditional pop.
