Stay

Stay baby

(Stay) come on darling now

(Stay)you know I want you back

(Stay with me tonight)

Come on won’t you stay

(Stay, oh)

(Stay)

(Stay with me)

Seems I have the strangest dream

I’m dreaming that you are gonna leave me

I wake up and I find it’s true

What will I do without you?

I don’t know, I don’t know

Just what it takes to get to you

I don’t know, I don’t know

Baby I’ll be true if only you could

even though I made you cry

Baby don’t you say goodbye

(Stay) Baby look me in my eye

(Stay with me tonight)

Come on baby

Even though I made you cry

(Stay) Baby don’t you say goodbye

(Stay) Won’t you stay

(Stay with me)

They say that love will come and go

But your love’s indispensable to me

I really want to be with you

What are we gonna do boy

I don’t know, I don’t know

Just what it takes to get to you

I don’t know, I don’t know

Baby I’ll be true if only you would

even though I make you cry

(Stay) Baby don’t you say goodbye

(Stay) Baby look me in my eye

(Stay with me tonight)

Even though I told you lies

(Stay)

Baby give me one more try

(Stay)

(Stay with me)

Come on baby

Won’t you, won’t you

Why don’t you stay?

Why don’t you stay?

(Stay, stay)

Come on, come on, come on and stay

Come on, come on, come on and stay

(Stay with me tonight)

Oh, oh, oh

I want you to stay

(Stay, stay) even though I made you cry

(Stay, stay)Baby don’t you say goodbye

(Stay with me tonight)

Come on baby

(Stay)Make you cry

(Stay) You don’t have to say goodbye

Even though I make you cry (stay)

You don’t have to say goodbye (stay)
