Stay
Sugarland Lyrics


I've been sitting here staring at the clock on the wall
And I've been laying here praying, praying she won't call
It's just another call from home
And you'll get it and be gone
And I'll be crying

And I'll be begging you, baby
Beg you not to leave
But I'll be left here waiting
With my heart on my sleeve
Oh, for the next time we'll be here
Seems like a million years
And I think I'm dying

What do I have to do to make you see
She can't love you like me?

Why don't you stay
I'm down on my knees
I'm so tired of being lonely
Don't I give you what you need?
When she calls you to go
There is one thing you should know
We don't have to live this way
Baby, why don't you stay?

You keep telling me, baby
There will come a time
When you will leave her arms
And forever be in mine
But I don't think that's the truth
And I don't like being used and I'm tired of waiting
It's too much pain to have to bear
To love a man you have to share

Why don't you stay
I'm down on my knees
I'm so tired of being lonely
Don't I give you what you need?
When she calls you to go
There is one thing you should know
We don't have to live this way
Baby, why don't you stay?

I can't take it any longer
But my will is getting stronger
And I think I know just what I have to do
I can't waste another minute
After all that I've put in it
I've given you my best
Why does she get the best of you?
So next time you find you wanna leave her bed for mine

Why don't you stay
I'm up off my knees
I'm so tired of being lonely
You can't give me what I need
When she begs you not to go
There is one thing you should know
I don't have to live this way
Baby, why don't you stay? Yeah
Oh, oh, oh

This is still giving me chills in 2022. Damn Jennifer really got the emotions across in her eyes alone.

April Hall

Hit home from the main Chick side though. I lost him but kept my soul.

Daniel Knight

Yes she did.

Cortenay

I've yet to see it done better. No other video has ever hit me like this one and it's her performance. We have to give it to him too. He's not crying, but his performance supports hers. My opinion.

SA

Damn... Same. 🥺

Burny Chaplin

Yeah I am a big tough guy and she makes me cry 😭

I still cry when I listen to this song. I've been in 2 relationships like this. It's the hardest thing to say goodbye to him. But you know it's best. Someone said when you don't cry listening to this song, you've healed. I'm not there yet. Don't know it I ever will be
