(Benson)

In her past there's lots of people
I know them by their names
Some of them rushed by like water
And some of them were flames
Each and all knew a different girl
Someone I'd never met
They went with her to parties
Good times she won't forget

And here I come with empty hands, ready to receive
And I just hope she doesn't change her mind and want to leave
Oh, girl stay right with me
It's gonna get better eventually
Oh, girl, stay here with me
It's gonna get better eventually

I came along when she had offers
Offers left and right
I gave her all I had to give
All my best insight
Now she knows the uselessness
The nonsense of it all
Oh, she understands the ways of men
Kicking in their stall

Aw, here I come with empty hands, ready to receive
And I just hope she doesn't change her mind and want to leave
Oh, girl, you got to stay with me
I'll get better eventually
So girl, please stay right here with me
You'll see a change coming over me

And sometimes when I look at her, I see a different girl
I wonder what she's thinking and if she is not out of my world
I've got the feeling that I've done harm, no good there have I done
I see a nervous stress that once was mine of which she asks for none

And here I come with empty hands, I'm ready to receive
And I hope that she doesn't change her mind and want to leave
Girl, you got to stay here with me
Things are gonna get better eventually
Girl, please stay with me
I feel a change coming over me
Girl, stay with me
I'm gonna change, has to
Girl, please stay with me
Oh, things will get better eventually.
