Stray Lyrics

Left alone with empty hands
Losing you is more than I can stand, I can't mend
Close my eyes, and made a wish
To lose myself so I'll forget about you it's no use

Swore to never ever leave you
To never let you out of my hands
Nothing here could ever change this
A promise til the living end
I swore I'd never stray from you

Broken bones, broken in half
I've come too far to start again
But I'm trying, I am trying
I'm sick of this , I'm sick of hurt
Shame is such a dirty word
I'm trying, I'm still trying Swore to never leave you
To never let you out of my hands
Nothing here could ever change this
A promise til the living end
I never meant to be a liar
The shame is cutting into my skin
I'd rather die on my feet
Than live here on my knees again
I swore I'd never stray from you

Swore I'd never stray from you

Thoughts & Meanings

The first verse is about the fear of giving up on a relationship. The fear is so severe that sometimes they even want to forget they even care about the person. The chorus highlights the reason why they try to remain faithful to the relationship - because they made a promise not to leave. 'A promise to the living end' could signify marriage or an eternal relationship. The second verse is about the pain and fear which the person has experienced as part of the relationship though they are trying to make it new. The last part of the song from 'I never meant to be a liar' is full of ambiguity as the listener is not sure whether the person has left or not. 'The shame is cutting into my skin' would indicate that they have left but the next line 'I'd rather die on my feet' sounds as if they are going to go down fighting for the relationship.
