I went sailin' out to the farthest seas
I went lookin' for answers and she came to me
I said, I don't know what to do
She said just stay with me, stay with me

I'd been up and down and all around
I'd been in every little corner of every little town
I said, I don't know where to go
She said just stay with me, stay with me

Well, the sun was going down and it was getting late
And the winding road ahead held a winding dose of fate
I said, I don't know just where to turn
She said just stay with me, stay with me

I looked at her, and she looked at me
And the signs were all there, it was so easy to see
She reached out and took me by the hand
And said just stay with me, stay with me

So I dropped my pack and I sparked up a light
And the fire grew high and her eyes glowed bright
I said, I don't know what to do
She said just stay with me, stay with me

(Chorus):

Why don't you
Stay the night with me

Well she opened her basket and there was plenty to share
As my lonesome guitar soothed the cool evening air
I said I've got some places I've gotta go
She said just stay with me, stay with me

I started strummin' a tune and it went something like this
It was soft it was smooth like a velvety mist
I said I don't think I am what you need
She said just stay with me, stay with me

Well, as the fog rolled in she drew closer to me,
Until the fire and her was all I could see
I said I can't allow myself to fall for you
She said just stay with me, stay with me

Then she reached out gently and put her hand on the strings
Said I'm not lookin' for love, I'm not lookin' for rings
I know you don't got those to give
I wish you'd stay with me, stay with me

So I dropped my guitar and I looked in her eyes
And the charm that was there made me gasp in surprise
And as she drew me in, I knew I was falling fast
And she said just stay with me, stay with me

(Chorus)

I woke up at dawn, but she wasn't around
And though I looked so hard, she was not to be found
I said my girl where have you gone
Why didn't you stay with me, stay with me

I searched and I scrambled and I searched some more
But the wind was arisin' my ship was too close to shore
I said my girl where have you gone
Why didn't you just stay with me, stay with me

Then I found her note, and it said she was gone
And I understood then why she set off alone
It said I walked away, but I wanted to stay
And have you stay with me, stay with me

Well, I'm sailin' now across unknown seas
But when I listen closely to the evenin' breeze
I swear I hear a whispered voice that says
Just stay with me, stay with me

So I'm headin' back, but I'm not there yet
Though it gets so hard when I see the sun set
And a voice inside my chest cries out
Just stay with me, stay with me

(Chorus)
