Joe Jackson – Stay lyrics

Here darkness never quite descends
Only the toughest stars
Hang with neon friends
Over neon candy stores
Till the bitter end

Oh madness
Waits for me someday
Raising a champagne glass
Down some dark alleyway
Down some mean magnetic street
Stopping me to say...

You could live anywhere you want to
Give me one reason to stay

Here monsters walk the earth again
Mermaids in black and gold
Perfume and cocaine
Rising from a teeming sea
Asking me again...

You could have anyone you want to
Give me one reason to stay

I think I'll stay
