I've been sittin' here, starin' at the clock on the wall
And I've been layin' here, prayin'
Prayin' she won't call
It's just another call from home, and you'll get it
And be gone, and I'll be cryin'

And I'll be beggin' you, baby
Beg you not to leave
But I'll be left here waitin'
My heart on my sleeve
Oh, for the next time we'll be here
Seems like a million years, and I think I'm dyin'

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 bein' 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?

You keep tellin' 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 bein' used, and I'm tired of waitin'

It's too much pain to have to bear
To love a man you have to share

I can't take it any longer, but my will is gettin' 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 bein' 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?
