Sometimes you twist
Always insist that
You know a way

Should I let go now
Would I even know
How to anyway

And all that matters
Is turned around
Over and over again
We're at full circle
It comes down to now again

Stay the night
Let a little love show
Stay the night
It's all right, yeah
Stay the night
Don't say you don't know
Stay the night

Trying so hard
To hold onto you
Can you show me how

If I seem cautious
Maybe I'm lost
Can you show me now

And all that matters
Is turned around
Over and over again
We're at full circle
It comes down to now again

Stay the night
Let a little love show
Stay the night
It's all right

Stay the night
You lead, I'll follow
Stay the night
Stay tonight

In all the making
Yours for the taking
Shaking me down
You see what we've got
You know what's it's not
That turns you upside down

And all that matters
Is turned around
Over and over again
We're at full circle
It comes down to now again

Stay the night
Let a little love show
Stay the night
Don't say you don't know
Stay the night
You lead, I'll follow
Stay the night

Stay the night
Come on, stay the night
Stay the night, yeah

Stay the night
Let a little love show
Stay the night
Stay the night
Stay the night
Don't say you don't know
Stay the night, it's all right
Just stay the night

Stay the night
Let a little love show
Stay the night
Stay tonight
Stay the night...

    A true carpe diem. Ben Orr is probably the one rock star I miss the most from the 80's. He simply can't be replaced, and there will never be another person quite like him. It's been over a decade now and we're still sad over his loss. RIP Ben!

    If you love/like someone show it :)

    Ben wants to feel love from that woman,
    And maybe she play it hard to get or moving slow.

    It's beautifull he tells her: we will do it the way you want.

    Great singer great song

    With the charm of the romantic songs of the 80's, becoming better each time like wine

    Issues keep coming up about the relationship, it has come down now to deciding whether they want to take the step to staying the night, going slow. If she wants the lead, he will follow. A little give and take in the relationship, going slowly so as not to destroy the delicateness of the relationship. Such a beautiful, sexy song.

    It's all about the moment… he wants her to stay the night "let a little love show" he also tells her "it's alright" comforting her… "you lead i'll follow" putting her in the driver's seat… the lyrics are sexy and bold. He is proposing a night of passion and even compelling her "don't say you don't know" it's about class and mystery, going after what you want with poise yet urgency. The song as a whole goes back and forth between a night of passion and her being much more. "if i seem cautions maybe i'm lost, can you show me how. " vulnerable and confidant side… perfect balance and benjamin's best song! I sing it to my wife all the time after a night out… melts her everytime… reminds me of my single days too… love it! Watch the video it accompanies the song perfectly

    You see what we've got
    you know what its not
    it's that period before you ask her to move in. Stay the night also means don't leave me, i don't want to be alone, it doesn't matter that we'er not going to fall in love & live happily everafter. Carpe diem. Enjoy the moment.
