Stay a while
Stay a while
Down in the shadows of your deepest secrets
I sleep next to the precepts you hold most dear
Your heart is in my province jour upon hour
I shiver when you feel the cold,
Everything you say I hear
Like a bomb and its fuse,
We bring bright light
But I could be a devil to you
I could bite like a tarantula
Right through the skin
And leave my poison dripping(dream)
Deliciously Unsuspecting
Protecting you from all harm
Except perhaps from reasoning (these arms)
That hold you

I didn't know you'd be here, and I wasn't meant to come.
I'd be sitting watching TV if there was anything decent on.
If I made some coffee, would you sit and talk some more?
I know words are usually pointless, when you used them all before.
The way you smile fills the room
Stay awhile. Kick off your shoes. Don't go. Please stay.
It always happened this way.
Why go? When you can stay awhile,
when you could stay with me, tonight.
Why go? When you can stay awhile,
when you could stay with me, tonight.
Don't go..

I didn't know you'd be here, and I wasn't meant to come.
if I'd missed the taxi or found nothing good to wear.
But for some uncertain reason, some strange and uncertain reason,
this is how it all, it all began.
The way you smile fills the room
Stay awhile. What's there to lose?
The way you laugh, when I say, Don't go. Please stay.

Why go? When you can stay awhile,
when you could stay with me, tonight.
Why go? When you can stay awhile,
when you could stay with me, tonight.
Why go? When you can stay awhile,
when you could stay with me, tonight.
Tonight
