Lyrics: Stay The Night

Stay The Night by Benjamin Orr (written by Benjamin Orr and Diane Page, ©1983)

 

Sometimes you twist, always insist that you know a way

Should I let go now, would I even know how to, anyway?

And all that matters is turned around over and over again

We’re at full circle, it comes down to now again

 

Stay the night… let a little love show

Stay the night, it’s alright yeah

Stay the night… don’t say you don’t know

Stay the night

 

Trying so hard to hold onto you, can you show me how?

If I seem cautious, maybe I’m lost, can you show me now?

And all that matters is turned around over and over again

We’re at full circle, it comes down to now again

 

Stay the night… let a little love show

Stay the night, it’s alright

Stay the night… you lead, I’ll follow

Stay the night, stay tonight

 

In all the making, yours for the taking, shaking me down

You see what we’ve got, you know what it’s not that turns you upside down

And all that matters is turned around over and over again

We’re at full circle, it comes down to now again

 

Stay the night, let a little love show

Stay the night, don’t say you don’t know

Stay the night, you lead, I’ll follow

Stay the night, ho ho

 

Stay the night, c’mon stay the night

Stay the night, yeah

 

Stay the night, let a little love show

Stay the night, stay the night

Stay the night… don’t say you don’t know

Stay the night, it’s alright, just stay the night

 

Stay the night… let a little love show

Stay the night, stay tonight

Stay the night… don’t say you don’t know

Stay the night… you lead, I’ll follow

Quoting Benjamin

When asked if he expected comparisons between his solo album and Ric Ocasek’s new album (This Side of Paradise): “Ric and I never had any contest. It just happened that they’re coming out near each other. If people want to compare, there’s not much we can do about it.” — The Boston Herald, October 12, 1986
