Lyrics

Stay

I found your old sweater, the one you left here last December when the rain came and soaked us through
It’s like finding old love, it doesn’t fit but it’s soft to touch and it smells like rain dripping with you
I will stay in this place

I sit under your piano but I can’t hear what you’re saying cause you’re not playing anything for me
I listen for the echo but somehow I already know even echoes leave
I can’t stand to watch it fade

Baby stay, don’t go
So there’s something in this shell that still feels like a home
I can say, I always tried
To keep what was dead alive, baby stay

I wander down Mass Avenue it’s cold as hell but the sky is blue
I still expect to see you waiting and I walk past our meeting spot the corner by the coffee shop, while the light is changing
I still need what remains

Baby stay, don’t go
So there’s something in this shell that still feels like a home
I can say, I always tried
To keep what was dead alive, memory stay

I’ll find you in old photographs and turn to salt for looking back, but somehow it will save me
And I’ll find you in between the lines of the other men I try to write
As I walk through the pages of my life

And you’ll stay, you won’t go
And something in this shell will still feel like a home
I will say I always tried
To keep what was left alive
