Stay

 

Darling we might not ever look like those families

In the stock picture frames or on old time TV

There ain’t no white fence around this life we have

We’re two runaways on a one way ticket track

 

And if I’m not the man you bargained for        

And the bright red love you bought me for is gone

Will you lie here under star drowned skies

And look me in the eyes when I say

These are our hard times

Say you’ll stay

 

I see the scars you keep underneath your skin

Drawn in like a map of all the places your heart’s been

The man I am ain’t nothing but holes in a tattered soul

Threads of grace hemmed with faith

They’re strongest stitches sewn

 

And if I’m not the man you bargained for        

And the bright red love you bought me for is gone

Will you lie here under star drowned skies

And look me in the eyes when I say

These are our hard times

Say you’ll stay
