Stay: Song Lyric Sunday

IMG_1345

Oh I so remember this classic ‘Stay With Me’ by Blue Mink from 1972. I played it for hours and knew the words within twenty four hours of purchase.
It never reached number one, but to me, a romantic 16 year old, it was one of their best.

These are the lyrics.

Oh, when you’re without love, every day is a little more
humdrum
Dreaming, always dreaming, how to make amends, how to
keep a friend

Stay with me, lay with me, love me for longer than just
your goodbye
I need a friend at the end of a long lonely day
All my tomorrows, my yesterday’s sorrows are blown to the
wind
Stay with me, lay with me, love let your loving begin

If you’re without love, (you will know) you will know
(just what it is)
what it is to be unloved, (all by yourself)
Thinking, always thinking, how to make a friend, how to
keep a friend

Stay with me, lay with me, love me for longer than just
your goodbye
I need a friend at the end of a long lonely day
All my tomorrows, my yesterday’s sorrows are blown to the
wind
Stay with me, lay with me, love let your loving begin

(Guitar break)

Dreaming, always dreaming, how to make a amends, how to
keep a friend

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I am a child of the 80s, but this one sounds sooth and I know what it’s like, when a song and its lyrics catch my attention. Learning every word is essential, as fast as possible.

    I can’t recall hearing this one before, but it is lovely. It would be a good song to slow dance to. 🙂
