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?
