lyrics

DO YOU WANT ME TO STAY

do you want me to stay
it’s dark here when the flame goes down
i seen you looking out the window at the rain
i’m sorry that your angel’s back down on the ground

please forgive me my cynicism
you know i been a bride
i put my heart and my soul and my body in it
then i took a ride

what was it we were supposed to learn in school
why wouldn’t they let us out to see they sky
well deep in my homeroom i heard that blues woman singing
she said love has no pride

welcome to patience baby
we might be here a while
please let me stay
we’ll look into this heavy weather
until the stars do rise

my feet were useful a hundred years ago
they were rooted in a vineyard where people moved slow
now my legs are trembling and i’m coming up from below
hold me like that vine brother drink my wine

patience welcome darling
we might be here for a while
please let me stay
we’ll look into this heavy weather
until the stars do rise

you can see what it is that i’m thinking
and this thinking is insane
i just want to go back to the darkness
and feel the gentle rain

now I would never tell a lie
it’s just that my truth seems to change and change and change again
sorry to say you cannot trust in me
but you can love me like I love you baby can’t you see
