Why Do You Let Me Stay Here?
She & Him Lyrics


Why do you let me stay here?
All by myself
Why don't you come and play here
I'm just sitting on the shelf

Why don't you sit right down and stay a while
We like the same things and I like your style
It's not a secret, why do you keep it?
I'm just sitting on the shelf

I got to get your presence
Let's make it known
I think you're just so pleasant
I would like you for my own

Why don't you sit right down and make me smile
You make me feel like I am just a child
Why do you end it?
Just give me credit
I'm just sitting on the shelf

I love Zooey's voice! She sounds like a classic 50s singer.

The National Distributist

Great song. She's describing a pretty common situation which is straightforwardly explained by manosphere/redpill types. She's gotten involved with a man that she's really excited about, but she's wondering why their relationship seems to be a bit stalled, it isn't progressing into something more serious. It sounds like she hasn't met his friends ("It's not a secret; why do you keep it?" "Let's make it known ..."). She asks, why not turn this casual affair—since it seems like it's going so wonderfully—into something more serious, make a commitment to each other, maybe get married eventually. The answer to her musical question is that he has other girlfriends. Turns out that the things she finds exciting about him are also attractive to other women. Dude's getting a lot of milk for free.
