The Alternate Routes – Stay lyrics

We watched the footprints on the carpet disappear
We stayed in bed until the overcast was clear
Here we are happy, we are never more than one

Now that it's begun, just put your arms around me
'Cause I know it's a chance worth taking
But that don't stop my hands from shaking

Won't you stay, just a little
Later then you planned?
You can waste away forever waiting on the Promised Land
If you gave me a reason, I would give you all I can
An evening, such as these, makes it easy to believe
You could be my love, you could be my love

I've seen the re-runs, now, that everybody knows
I've seen the days when I was better off alone
But now you're in the picture
Take me back to bed
Save me from this worry in my head

Oh, won't you stay, just a little
Later then you planned?
You can waste away forever waiting on the Promised Land
If you gave me a reason I would give you all I can
An evening, such as these, makes it easy to believe, you could be my love
You could be my love

Would you please, just agree that it's better to stay than to leave?
Stick around, spend an evening with me
Spend the night, if you like, it's the way it should be

Oh, won't you stay, just a little
Later then you planned?
You can waste away forever waiting on the Promised Land
If you gave me a reason I would give you all I can
An evening such as these makes it easy to believe you could be my love
You could be my love

You could be my love
You could be my love
You could be
