John Wesley Harding – It Stays lyrics

Bury it in the garden
At midnight by the moon
Cover up the traces
Lick and dress your wounds
Burn it up or drown it you can try
But what has never lived can never die
And it doesn't go away

It stays
It stays
It stays
It stays

I saw you standing in the kitchen
Drinking champagne from a mug
Should I have waited 'til you noticed me
Was I ash upon the rug

Sometimes you can not remove the stain
And if you do it's absence still remains
And it doesn't go away

It stays
It stays
It stays
It stays
It fights another day
It doesn't go away
It stays
It stays
It stays
It stays

It's as simple as that
I can't add to it
We had our chance and we blew it
Worse than that well we knew it
Well we knew it

Every day's the morning after
Maybe last night broke the curse
But it was only in remission
It'll come back even worse

In your dreams it's falling far behind
But just like daylight coming through the blinds
It doesn't go away

It stays
It stays
It stays
It stays
It fights another day
It doesn't go away
It stays
It stays
It stays
It stays
It fights another day
Do not go away
Stay
Stay
Stay
Stay
Do not go away
Stay
