Lyrics: Darlin’ Dear

My dear, you’re so beautiful to see
But I swear that it’s true there is nothing underneath 
I would to sit and talk with you for days 
But when it comes to conversation all you say 
Is uh huh, alright, okay 

I know I shouldn’t stay
But I’m gonna stay 

The flags that surround you all are red 
But with my rose-colored glasses on my face 
They seem to beacon me instead 
My darlin’ Dear what do you want from me?
You shrug your shoulders, then you turn you back
And you sing your songs sayin’ how “no one here wants me” 

I know I shouldn’t stay 
But I’m gonna stay

I wanna feel something as real 
As your hand upon my skin 
But everywhere that I go 
I run into me once again 
I wanna feel something as real 
As your hand upon my skin 
But everywhere that I go 
I run into me once again 
I wanna feel something as real 
As your hand upon my skin
I wanna feel 
Something real 

I know I shouldn’t stay 
But I’m gonna stay
