  • Guess it's true, I'm not good at a one-night stand
    But I still need love 'cause I'm just a man
    These nights never seem to go to plan
    I don't want you to leave, will you hold my hand?

    Oh, won't you stay with me?
    'Cause you're all I need
    This ain't love, it's clear to see
    But darling, stay with me

    Why am I so emotional?
    No, it's not a good look, gain some self control
    And deep down I know this never works
    But you can lay with me so it doesn't hurt

    Oh, won't you stay with me?
    'Cause you're all I need
    This ain't love, it's clear to see
    But darling, stay with me

    Oh, won't you stay with me?
    'Cause you're all I need
    This ain't love, it's clear to see
    But darling, stay with me

    Oh, won't you stay with me?
    'Cause you're all I need
    This ain't love, it's clear to see
    But darling, stay with me Writer/s: James John Napier, Jeff Lynne, Samuel Frederick Smith, Tom Petty, William Edward Phillips

  • Dr.johnnyfever from Wkrp In CincinnatiPut on a Depends undergarment, and watch the "shredded" version of this song on you-tube. It is from a performance on the David Letterman Late Show on CBS, and the work put into matching the instruments and vocals will have you wet yourself, it is that funny and realistic looking and sounding.
  • Brian Armstrong from UkIf I were Nina Simone's estate I'd be interested to hear how this doesn't resemble 'I wish i knew How it would feel to be free' especially in the piano versions used as the theme for Barry Norman's UK Film Programme. Cant just be me? But of course it was a Jazz well known tune before Nina recorded it.
  • Rick from Los AngelesThough it says above that the piano melody resembles Tom Petty's "I Won't Back Down", it's actually the chorus vocal melody over the piano chords that resembles the verse melody over the guitar chords of Tom Petty's song.
  • Mathews from Lusaka, ZambiaGreat song indeed that make one to come down on earth.
