Mazzy Star - I've Gotta Stop Lyrics




I’ve gotta stop
Making you stay
I’ve gotta know
You’d never say
Those words are meant
Not to be thrown
God hears you say
You put me on
But when you’re weakened in my arms
Shining

You look so strange
From someone’s window
You’ve got that ray
Like Palm Shore ray
But something’s wrong
I’m sure you know
You seem to say
You’ll never go
But when you’re weary in my arms
Shining

I’ve gotta stop
Making you stay
I’ve gotta know
You’ll never say
I’ve got that thought
To pass the time
God hears you say
That would be fine
But when I’m weary in your arms
Shining

  3. bart simpson

    I've gotta stop
    Making you stay
    I've gotta know
    You'd never say
    Those words are meant
    Not to be thrown
    God hears you say
    You put me on
    But when you're weakened in my arms
    Shining
    You look so strange
    From someone's window
    You've got that ray
    Like Palm Shore ray
    But something's wrong
    I'm sure you know
    You seem to say
    You'll never go
    But when you're weary in my arms
    Shining
    I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
    I've gotta stop
    Making you stay
    I've gotta know
    You'll never say
    I've got that thought
    To pass the time
    God hears you say
    That would be fine
    But when I'm weary in your arms
    Shining

    I love this song. I always imagine the video would have been them playing on a small stage in a dark, smokey truck stop bar.

  5. Jasper102211

    I love the guitar sound... like it's coming from a room down the hall with the door shut.

  6. Nitro Richmond

    That way again has the same beginning but then again be my angel and fade into you similar as well

    6 people must have not read my comment 4 years ago
    ...wow it's been like a blink of an eye, I remember what I was doing, where I was, when I left that comment....

    katherandefy

    7 now... :/ how can they possibly dislike?

    AudreyDurden

    katherandefy maybe they listen to emo bands or rap

    AudreyDurden

    actually I really shouldn't knock people just because they have a different taste in music. I'm not inclined to suggest anyone who prefers rap, for instance, to Hope Sandoval, is in the wrong, and even the most unpleasant (to my ears) music still won't get an unlike from me, because I wouldn't be on that page to begin with.... lol. but lots of people tend to behave as if it were constantly opposite day.

    katherandefy

    Well I needed to hear it again today... was thinking that some things just gotta stop and immediately this song came to mind. Pure bliss and amazing love for this song. I got zero dislike. And those 8 can bite my ass. ;)

    AudreyDurden

    katherandefy careful, some of them hateful eight might try take you up on your offer...watch out for shifty eyed strangers gnashing their teeth. they often have rabies.

    I’ve gotta stop
    Making you stay
    I’ve gotta know
    You’d never say
    Those words are meant
    Not to be thrown
    God hears you say
    You put me on
    But when you’re weakened in my arms
    Shining

    You look so strange
    From someone’s window
    You’ve got that ray
    Like Palm Shore ray
    But something’s wrong
    I’m sure you know
    You seem to say
    You’ll never go
    But when you’re weary in my arms
    Shining

    I’ve gotta stop
    Making you stay
    I’ve gotta know
    You’ll never say
    I’ve got that thought

    Gabriel Reyes

  27. Idiopan

    Its surprising how many people don't know Mazzy Star is the band name and the singers name is Hope Sandoval.

    Jasper102211

    I actually corrected someone on this a few weeks ago... on a friend's Facebook post. I didn't know them, but I couldn't let it slide.
