Baby you can't go on
Wondering where you belong
Let me help you find yourself
Cause you don't need nobody else

Ahh you should be right here with me babe
Instead of going round this frantic town 
And start messin around
With all the lonely lonely people out there
No one to care
Why don't you come and stay with me
Because I love you so

You tell me you love me so
Why do you have to go
Everything you'll ever need
You will find right here with me

Ahh you should be right here with me babe
Instead of going round this frantic town 
And start messin around
With all the lonely lonely people out there
No one to care
Why don't you come and stay with me
Because I love you so

Stay with me, stay with me
Stay with me, stay with me
Stay with me, stay with me
Stay with me, stay with me
Stay with me

Ahh you should be with me babe
Ahh you shouldn't go no where
And all I'm trying to tell you babe
Happiness is waiting for you

So won't you stay with me? so won't you stay with me?
I got what you need
So won't you stay with me?
Don't go nowhere baby, don't go, no, no
I got what ya need
So won't you stay with me?

Don't go, don't go, I love you so
(repeat 3x to fade)
