Stephen – I Never Stay in Love

Amazing fresh song by Stephen

Artist about the track:

“I Never Stay in Love” is the first single from Stephen’s upcoming album Akrasia, out this July.

Stephen says on the track, “I wrote this song pretty soon after getting back from some world travels. I met this girl in Thailand named Mariah. She was this beautiful Greek girl who lived in the UK, and was finished up her PHD in machine learning. We met at a meditation retreat. She seemed like a unicorn. I ended up flying to her hometown of Bristol and we spent a week together. Our communication was very clear and honest. We live in opposite parts of the world, we barely know each other, this is a spontaneous adventure for us both – we have no expectation other than to be present and in love with these moments. There was no promise of commitment past that. I sensed that she wasn’t the grounded, self-loving human I had fallen for. She was using me to escape. And as my disinterest grew stronger, so did her clinging. And this cycle lasted a few days. And I had no where else to sleep but in her bed. It was awful. And she really shamed me for not wanting to stay, or not wanting to continue this relationship across seas. She made me feel guilty for following my heart and moving towards warmth, because I saw how my fleeting love for someone can crush them when it’s gone.”

LYRICS:

Somethin’ bout us don’t,
Seem to make sense now,
Darlin’ it’s cold out,
I never stay in love,
Tear me right open,
My heart’s like an ocean,
So many places,
I never stay in love,

I remember when it started,
I saw the way you needed me,
To go along like I needed you,
But I don’t need you, no I don’t need you,
I wanna hold you closely,
I wanna lose myself in ya,
I wanna make you feel so good,
But I don’t need you, no I don’t need you,
Already got me…

What is love?
Tell me baby is it really love?
Really love? Or just someone that you’ve been, uh,
Leanin’ on?
So you don’t ever have to deal with what you really want?
It’s a temporary fix called you and I,
A distraction from the habits of your thinking mind,
An addiction everybody seems to think is fine,
Love yourself or you’ll be holding on for dear life,

I remember when it started,
I saw the way you needed me,
To go along like I needed you,
But I don’t need you, no I don’t need you,
I wanna hold you closely,
I wanna lose myself in ya,
I wanna make you feel so good,
But I don’t need you, no I don’t need you,

Somethin’ bout us don’t,
Seem to make sense now,
Darlin’ it’s cold out,
I never stay in love,
Tear me right open,
My heart’s like an ocean,
So many places,
I never stay in love,

Yeah cause I,
Loving you was something I was really feeling,
The more of me I gave you then the more you needed,
Yeah cause I,
Loving you was something I was really feeling,
The more of me I gave you then the more you needed.
