I Stay Away Lyrics

Yeah, hey Yeah, I want to travel south this year
Aaah, Woah, Woah
Won't prevent safe passage here

Why you act crazy
Not an act maybe
So close a lady
Shifty eyes shady

Yeah, hey Yeah, tears that soak
A callous heart

Why you act...

    I farted in my hands on accident. They closed the case!when they got back to me I told them that I watched too much televisions at night and they just left the house. Didn’t have to ask to go to the store or anything from then in. Really cool

    Layne wrote this song shortly after leaving rehab for his heroin addiction, and that's what I believe this song is centered around.

    In my opinion they are talking about a jaded women. Who has a obsession with a man.
