Song Lyric Sunday 4/15/18 – Stay

I know it’s still Saturday in my neck of the woods (as this post goes live on 4/14 at 6:30 PM CDT), but I just couldn’t wait to post this. I have to get it out of my system now. This Song Lyric Sunday is dedicated to the memory of my very dear friend Shawn Bolvi-Singleton who passed away this past Monday. I’ll forever love you and miss you.

Alas, it’s time once again for our weekly dive into the world of music. This week’s theme is “stay” – a theme that hits home for me this week with the loss of my beloved friend. Please stay with us all in spirit. I wish you all could have known her – she was one of the kindest, most gentle and beautiful people I’ve ever met.

Anyway, the very second I saw the theme I knew which song to feature, because a brand new song has that one-word title – “Stay.” This song was released in November 2017 as a sister song to “I Love You But I’m Lost” to be featured on the compilation album Rule The World. The name of the album should give a vital hint as to who did this song.

So here’s the song (written by Curt Smith):

Speak, don’t speak
Go, don’t go
Damned if I do
Damned if I know
Wait, don’t linger
Wait damned slow
Stay for the open hand
Or let it all go

Young enough
To play the game
Old enough to know
It’s all or nothing

Stay, don’t stay
Go, don’t go
Stay, don’t stay
Go, don’t go

Dust to dust
We all fall down
One for the hills
Until we’re safe and sound of the

Young enough
To play the game
Old enough to know
It’s all or nothing

Stay, don’t stay
Go, don’t go
Stay, don’t stay
Go, don’t go

It’s all or nothing
Stay, don’t stay
Go, don’t go
Stay, don’t stay
Go, don’t go

Well, that’s this week. Sorry for the slightly somber tone, but it just kind of fit with the events of this past week. Thank you to all my friends who showed me an outpouring of support; it means a lot to me.

  1. I’m so sorry for your loss. The lyrics are beautiful. I’ll have to listen to it later as I’m not in a place to do it now but my thoughts are with you my friend. Hang in there. ❤️
