Stay Lyrics

I've been sitting here staring at the clock on the wall
And I've been laying here praying, praying she won't call
It's just another call from home
And you'll get it and be gone and I'll be crying

And I'll be begging you, baby, beg you not to leave
But I'll be left here waiting with my heart on my sleeve
Oh, for the next time we'll be here
Seems like a million years and I think I'm dying
What do I have to do to make you see she can't love you like me?

Why don't you stay? I'm down on my knees
I'm so tired of being lonely, don't I give you what you need?
When she calls you to go, there is one thing you should know
We don't have to live this way, baby, why don't you stay? Yeah

You keep telling me, baby there will come a time
When you will leave her arms and forever be in mine
But I don't think that's the truth
And I don't like being used and I'm tired of waiting
It's too much pain to have to bear to love a man you have to share

Why don't you stay? I'm down on my knees
I'm so tired of being lonely, don't I give you what you need?
When she calls you to go, there is one thing you should know
We don't have to live this way, baby, why don't you stay?

I can't take it any longer but my will is getting stronger
And I think I know just what I have to do
I can't waste another minute after all that I've put in it
I've given you my best, why does she get the best of you?
So next time you find you wanna leave her bed for mine

Why don't you stay? I'm up off my knees
I'm so tired of being lonely, you can't give me what I need
When she begs you not to go, there is one thing you should know
I don't have to live this way, baby, why don't you stay? Yeah, oh

it's the most painful thing to love a man that loves another woman. to give him all that you are as he gives all that he is to another woman. in love with a man that went back to her old gal friend yet he still acts as though he is still in love with me. i try to give him all my best bust i never understand him. when i keep silent he texts and when i text he keeps silent. this is really nagging. to love a man that has a passion for another woman is just painful

Just heard this song for the first time. This is so my life only I'm not strong enough to wise up yet.

To me this song means, not letting a boy tear you down, and realizing that you don't need him. I have loved this song ever since it came out. I love to sing it for my little brother. I love this song!

This song is written from the point if view of the other woman, who finally wises up to the fact that his wife and family will always come first.

I don't feel sorry for the woman in this song. It is the natural consequence of sleeping with a married man. The one who deserves sympathy and support is the wife who's home taking care of the kids.
