Lyrics
Won't You Stay?

( STEVE DAFOE 2004)

(COPYRIGHTED)


Verse A
Am7 Cmaj7
We met some years ago.
Am7 Cmaj7
It was lust from the start.
Am7 Cmaj7
It was so easy to know.
Am7 Cmaj7
That we do belong together.
Am7 Cmaj7 A7
If I were to be that smart.
Fmaj7
But I wasn't...
Cmaj7 A7
Oh, not that smart...
Cmaj7 (strum and pick) A7 (strum and pick) x2

Chorus
G G G (high E , high A , low E)
Won't you stay?
Fmaj7
I'd miss you if you go.
G G G (high E , high A , low E )
Won't you stay?
Fmaj7
I really want you to know.

Verse B
Am7 Cmaj7
I'd change things, some years ago.
Am7 Cmaj7
Maybe just friends from the start.
Am7 Cmaj7
Being smart means getting to know.
Am7 Cmaj7
That being together is,
Am7 Cmaj7 A7
Much more of an art.
Fmaj7
But I didn't...
Cmaj7 A7
Oh, be that smart...
Cmaj7 (strum and pick) A7 (strum and pick) x2

Chorus
G G G (high E , high A , low E)
Won't you stay?
Fmaj7
I'd miss you if you go.
G G G (high E, high A, low E)
Won't you stay?
Fmaj7
I really want you to know.

Verse C
Am7 Cmaj7
I want to change now.
Am7 Cmaj7
I hope I can rise above.
Am7 Cmaj7
I have gotten smarter.
Am7 Cmaj7
That being together is,
Am7 Cmaj7 A7
All to do with love.
Fmaj7
But it's far too late.
Cmaj7 A7
Oh, to be that smart.
Cmaj7 (strum and pick) A7 (strum and pick) x2

Chorus
G G G (high E, high A, low E)
Won't you stay?
Fmaj7
I'd miss you if you go.
G G G (high E, high A, low E
Won't you stay?
Fmaj7
I really want you to know.
