Just Stay

lyrics

My mother got married and ran off when she was nineteen
Headed West to Nevada, the biggest night sky ever seen
Now it’s no wonder why I cry, why I’m restless, why I can’t sit still
She tries to forget that old feeling but she never will


She says don’t visit, don’t visit, just stay
She says don’t visit, don’t visit, just stay
She says don’t visit, don’t visit, just stay
Just Stay


My granny, she worries, she worries non-stop so she says
Her fears escalating so high she can’t get any rest
She worked on the farm in the house all the days of her life
And now she can’t bear to know I’m out alone in the dark of the night


She says don’t visit, don’t visit, just stay
She says don’t visit, don’t visit, just stay
She says don’t visit, don’t visit, just stay
Just Stay


My dad writes me letters, all crumbled and broken and deep
His pen makes a mess as he spells out the words we can’t speak
He’s been on the road or away since before I could know
It ain’t easy leaving, but sometimes you just have to go


She said don’t visit, don’t visit, just stay
She said don’t visit, don’t visit, just stay
I said don’t visit, don’t visit, just stay
Just Stay


Why don’t you stay?
Just stay, Just stay, Just stay
