About Stay

"Stay" is a song written and recorded by David Bowie in 1975 for the album Station to Station, released in January the following year. It was based on the funky guitar lick that dominates the track and which was invented by guitarist Earl Slick during the sessions for the album. In July 1976, the song was released as a single by RCA in the United States. The verse and chorus structures can be traced back to "John, I'm Only Dancing (Again)", a track recorded for the Young Americans album but first released (as a single) in 1979.

 Struggling with Stay? Become a better singer in 30 days with these videos!

This week dragged past me so slowly
The days fell on their knees
Maybe I'll take something to help me
Hope someone takes after me
I guess there's always some change in the weather
This time I know we could get it together
If I did casually mention tonight
That would be crazy tonight

Stay, that's what I meant to say, or do something
But I never say is stay this time
I really meant to so bad this time
'Cause you can never really tell when somebody
Wants something you want too

Heartwrecker, heartwrecker, make me delight
Life is so vague when it brings someone new
This time tomorrow I'll know what to do
I know it's happened to you

Stay, that's what I meant to say or do something
But what I never say is stay this time
I really meant to so badly this time
'Cause you can never really tell when somebody
Wants so much to stay
That's what I meant to say or do something
But what I never say is stay this time
I really meant to so badly this time
'Cause you can never really tell when somebody
Wants something you want too
