Solid Air: Listen

Stay (from Heartbreak Town CD, 1996)

(Solid Air)
STAY
It's been a long time
Since I felt that yearning in my heart.
Been a long time
Since the sound of a three a.m. jet plane tore me apart.

And it's so sweet, so strong
You hold that moment and then it's gone
You can live a lifetime, and never feel that way...
Oh, stay.

You make me feel fifteen again and wanting to be kissed.
I'm a summer sky full of stars, waiting on a wish.
I can close my eyes and you're everywhere
But when I reach out to touch you, there's no one there.

But's it's so sweet, so strong
You hold that moment and then it's gone.
You can live a lifetime and never feel that way...
Oh, stay.

I remember I was such a serious kid.
I was oh, so careful of everything that I did.
One day while I was working on gettin' it right
The wind came up and my heart took flight.

And it was so sweet, so strong
I held that moment till it was gone.
You can live a lifetime, and never feel that way...
Oh...It was so sweet, so strong
You hold that moment and then it's gone.
You can live a lifetime and never feel that way...
Oh, stay.

Been a long time...
Oh please stay.
Been a long time...
Oh please stay.
