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

    1. I agree that would be a fantastic
      interview! It’s a shame they couldn’t find their way back together. The pictures that circulate online show them to be so happy together. They seemed very compatible. But a musician’s life is a hard-knock life and I’m sure not easy on their partner.
      Can’t wait for the release of Joe Milliken’s book.
      Will he be doing a publicity tour in Boston?

      1. I guess 1983 makes sense, if you think about his interview with Mark Goodman in 1986. Mark mentioned the last time they spoke about the album was two years prior and Ben said he had all the songs ready, but then he was taking time to rebuild his house, etc. He did say “Stay the Night” was the first song he and Diane wrote together. It’s older than I thought, too. Kind of cool to follow the breadcrumb trail of clues to put it all together. 🙂
