It seems so clear, then disappears. Me and you, my reason to...stay.
Sometimes we think we know want. Sometimes we think we know what will make us happy. Sometimes we think we know the perfect thing to fill whatever void we have. And sometimes we're wrong.
Cliche's are cliche's for a reason. Some are simple and true; because of that, they are said a lot. In turn, these phrases gain the title of 'cliche' and unfortunately lose some value. Hindsight is 20/20. I can get tired of that phrase, but it is nonetheless true.
Stay is a song about me chasing what I thought would make me happy...a girl. I saw qualities that I know are good and character that is pure, but that's mostly what I was chasing. I was after good things, just the wrong person. It was a bit strange really. I would be so sure of it and then the next day, or hour even, be in the dark whether this was something I should pursue. But for a long time, I decided to keep at it and try to make it work and in the thick of that confusion is where this song came out of.
I think one of the hardest things I've had to do is choose to let go of what I thought was such a good thing. It doesn't make any sense when it happened, but I was holding myself back from a healthy mind and someone else who would be an even better fit. Again, hindsight is 20/20 right?
Is there a situation or relationship that you are choosing to keep yourself in for good things but still feel unsettled? I'm not saying it's unhealthy, but broaden your scope and take a second look. You may be surprised at what you find.
