"Stay" - Lisa Loeb

You say I only hear what I want to
You say I talk so all the time so

And I thought what I felt was simple
And I thought that I don't belong
And now that I am leaving
Now I know that I did something wrong 'cause I missed you
Yeah yeah, I missed you

You say I only hear what I want to:
I don't listen hard, don't pay attention to the distance that you're running
To anyone, anywhere
I don't understand if you really care,
I'm only hearing negative
No, No, No, Bad

So I, I turned the radio on, I turned the radio up (turn the radio)
And this woman was singing my song:
Lover's in love and the other's run away
Lover is crying 'cause the other won't stay
Some of us hover when we weep for the other who was
Dying since the day they were born
Well, well, this is not that
I think that I'm throwing, but I'm thrown

And I thought I'd live forever, but now I'm not so sure
You try to tell me that I'm clever
But that won't take me anyhow, or anywhere with you

You said that I was naive and I thought that I was strong
I thought, "hey, I can leave, I can leave."
Oh, but now I know that I was wrong, 'cause I missed you
Yeah, I miss you

You said, "You caught me 'cause you want me and one day you'll let me go
"You try to give away a keeper, or keep me
'Cause you know you're just so scared to lose
And you say, "Stay."

You say I only hear what I want to

Del álbum "Nine Stories" (1994)


Stay, uno de los temas que más se escucharon veinte años atrás :)  En ese entonces, Lisa Loeb era la pareja de Ethan Hawke quien dirigió el vídeo que se caracteriza por haberlo hecho en una sola toma, sin cortes ni trucos de edición. Después, fue incluido en el soundtrack de la peli Reality Bites.

 Jejeje, recordando, me vino a la mente (porque no tengo ni una mísera foto de esos años) que yo también lucí un look semejante al que lleva la Loeb en el vídeo: las falditas cortas con medias opacas y botines de tacón  ;-)
