lyrics

Why Don’t You Stay

You’re gonna go like you come so sweetly
but too quickly for me
I got a body of gold and a mind of steel
but my hearts a china plate that you will break

Why don’t you stay why don’t you say what you mean
how could you love me and still leave
Why don’t you stay I’ve got a home to keep
so do you want the open road or do you want me

It’s seven o’clock and the ghosts come knocking
It’s a party it’s Saturday night
but you’re only here to say goodbye
imagine my surprise I don’t think I heard you right

Why don’t you stay why don’t you say what you mean
how could you love me and still leave
Why don’t you stay I’ve got a home to keep
so do you want the open road or do you want me

I’ll just let it go sweep it under the rug
leave me the skeletons of our love
I’ll just let it go sweep it under the rug
It’s only the skeletons the sweet remains of our love

Why don’t you stay why don’t you say what you mean
how could you love me and still leave
Why don’t you stay I’ve got a home to keep
so do you want the open road or do you want me
Why don’t you stay you can’t have everything
so do you want the open road or do you want me
