Lyrics

-Stay Awhile-

You say you’re not ready for this
Well, what is this
That you’re not ready for?

You keep your distance
You hold me at arm’s length
Don’t let me get too close
Or you’re walking out that door

Why must you make this more than
It’s had the chance to be?
Why don’t you just

Chorus:
Stay awhile. What is your hurry?
Stay awhile. Why is it you must go?
We’re just two people; why can’t you

Stay awhile. That’s all that I’m asking
Stay awhile
Don’t you know love needs time to grow?
Or do you know that’s why you go?

You pack your future in a box with things
meant for another day
Another year

But when you want what you want,
will it still be there?
Oh, will it still be there
When you put aside your fear?

It doesn’t happen that way
The future is built on today so

[Repeat Chorus]

How do you know we’re not the
us you’ll need for all your life
If you never even take the time to stay?

Stay awhile. That’s all that I’m asking
Stay awhile
Don’t you know love needs time to grow?
Or do you know that’s why you go?
Oh, please don’t go
