Shakespear's Sister – Stay lyrics

* *
* by *
* Shakespear's Sister If *
* *

this world is wearing thin And
you're thinking of escape I'll
go anywhere with you Just
wrap me up in chains But
if you try to go out alone Don't
think i'll understand Stay

with me Stay
with me In

the silence of your room In
the darkness of your dreams You
must only think of me There
can be no in-betweens When
your pride is on the floor I'll
make you beg for more Stay

with me Stay
with me You'd

better hope and pray That
you make it safe Back
to your own world You'd
better hope and pray That
you wake one day In
your own world 'cuz
when you sleep at night They
don't hear your cries In
your own world Only
time will tell If
you can break the spell Back
in your own world Stay

with me Stay
with me (repeats
til end) --

Please input the reason why these lyrics are bad:


  • EmziieBooshiie
    Marcy and Siobhan, aka. Marcella Levy/Detroit and Siobhan Fahey, Shakespear's Sister, said that their idea for "Stay" was to be about 'two cat women on the Moon. ' An Earthling ends up on the Moon and Marcy falls in love with him and wants him to stay with her. That is what Marcy and Siobhan said but before I heard the interview I thought it was about Marcella's boyfriend dying and she wants him to stay with her and not go anywhere without her and that Siobhan was portraying Death and that Marcella fought Death for her boyfriend to live, either way, great song, great band, what a shame Shakespear's Sister kind of self-destructed.
