Is there a 70's rock song with the same sentiment as Lisa Loeb's 'Stay'?

Sorry if this seems like a stupid question, but I'm not TOO familiar with many songs of that era and genre. I'm looking for a song that conveys a sentiment similar to Lisa Loeb's 'Stay' (link to lyrics here
if it helps).

The song would ideally be by one of the following bands: The Doors, Queen, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin or Talking Heads.
Its basic idea is captured in these few lines:
You said that I was naive,
And I thought that I was strong.
I thought, "hey, I can leave, I can leave."
Oh but now I know that I was wrong, 'cause I missed you.
You said, "I caught you 'cause I want you and one day I'll let you go."
You try to give away a keeper, or keep me 'cause you know you're just so scared to lose.
And you say, "Stay."
You say I only hear what I want to.
Thanks much, Mefites.
