The Fray — I Can Barely Say lyrics

I said I told you everything, but I left something out
Underneath the stairwell.
That I'm under lock and key, but you can probably tell
A powder keg in prison cell

I wanna return but all you do is turn to leave
If I can find my way home, will you take hold of me

I've been gone so long
I can barely say
All I know is now I want to stay
Has it been too long since I went away?
Cause I'm trying to find the words, but I can barely say
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/the-fray-i-can-barely-say-lyrics.html ]
Well I use to be the sun
Waiting silently but they barely noticed me
But I've been talking in my sleep
When anybody sees they turn and run from me

I want to return but all you do is turn to leave
If I can find my way home will you take hold of me?

Cause I've been going so long
I can barely say
All I know is I want to stay
Has it been too long since I went away?
Cause I'm trying to find the words but I can barley say

I wanted to run
I wanted to love and be loved in return
But will I ever get back, do I know too much to return.

I've been gone so long, I can barely say
All I know is now I wanna stay
Has it been too long since I went away
Cause I'm trying to find the words but I can barely say.
