Shakespear's Sister – Stay lyrics
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) 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) 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) Stay with me
(Stay) Stay with me
(Stay) Stay, stay with me ahh-haaa
(Stay) Stay, stay, stay, stay, stay
(Stay) [Fades]

    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.
