Don’t have to lie about where you’ve been
We both know you’ve been screaming
So why don’t you give you little voice a rest
Come on up inside my bed
And just pretend you need me

You don’t have to lie about what you know
We both know you’ve been suffering
I don’t need to be your only one
I don’t need your comfort and
I just need you with me

Stay stay stay with me
Stay stay with me
Stay and don’t u run away from me
Stay stay with me

Ohh…

And if she ever lets u down
After she’s run out of your money
Well then just on crawl on back to me
Im the one that sets you free
And Im the one that needs you
And if she ever lets you go
Well but not what u need it
And if u need somewhere to rest
Somewhere to lay your head
Then you’ll know where to find me

Stay stay stay with me
Stay stay with me
Stay and don’t you ever run away from me
Stay stay with me

Yahh…

And if u need somewhere to rest
Somewhere to lay your head
And you’ll know where to find me

Stay with me
Stay with
Stay with me
Stay with
Stay with me
Stay with
Stay

I cant live another day
I wont live another day with out you baby

Stay with me with me
Stay with me
Stay with me

Till out there on the headlights
Empty the ashtrays
Sweep out the anyway
What’s left of our time
Well you can use my body
To do what u have to
But stay a little longer
Stay with me

    General CommentI don’t know what it is about this song but every time i hear it, it hits me so hard. When i first heard it on Chasing Amy i couldn't get it out of my head for weeks. But other than that i think the meaning behind this song is pretty black and white, not exactly brain surgery. Maybe thats what drew it to me in the first place how simplistic yet powerful it is. Her voice at the end when she starts to scream gives me goose bumps. :)

    General CommentAh Chasing Amy is my favorite of the Jersey movies. Kevin Smith is a genious. I love this song so much though, probably because I've been there, even though now it's slightly embarrassing to reminice of a time when I was practically begging and still had him walk away from me. I'll never let a guy do that to me again.

    General CommentI love this song. It is so beautiful. I'm not one of those people who cry during movies but when i do you know that the movie is special. Everytime this scene comes on during Chasing Amy i cry. This song is just so beautiful and it just sets the scene so well. Kevin Smith worked it well. As he does everything else. That man is a god!

    General CommentGreat song from a great movie.. It really doesn't make any sense when you think of the time it's played in the movie but it seems to mean that the person who is singing is saying that regardless of what's happened they need that person in their life...

    General CommentThis song... means almost everything to me. I believe this is the greatest love song, the greatest form of love. A love where you need the person so much that you would do anything for a bit of attention from them. Just listen to the lyrics...

    I don't need to be your only one
    I don't need your comfort and
    I just need you with me

    Now that's love.

    General CommentThis is an awesome song...I think that anyone who watched the movie "chasing amy" ends it with this one song in their head for days on end. I watched the movie quite a few times just to catch the lyrics so that i could write them down.
    I have to agree with spyderkyss...this song represents the best kind of love. The one where you would give them anything just to have them or their heart for a moment. I love to just sit back and listen to the lyrics and wish for a love that i would do anything for...just the chance to feel "real" love.

    General CommentYou don't have to lie about where you've been.
    We both know you've been screamin'
    So why don't you give your little voice a rest,
    climb on up inside my bed, and just pretend you need me?

    You don't have to lie about what you know.
    We both know that I've been sufferin'.
    And I don't need to be your only one,
    and I don't need your comfortin',
    I just need you with me.

    (chorus)
    (Stay, Stay, Stay with me.
    Stay, stay with me.
    Stay, and don't you ever run away from me.)

    Oh,and if she ever let's you down,
    after she has run out of your money?
    Well then just crawl on back to me, I'm the one that
    sets you free, and I'm the one that needs you.

    And if she ever let's you go,
    we both know what you'll be needin'.
    And if you need somewhere to rest,
    somewhere to lay your
    head, you'll know where to find me.

    (chorus)

    And if you need somewhere to rest,
    somewhere to lay your head, you know where to find me.

    Stay with me!
    I can't live another day,
    I won't live another day without you baby!
    Stay with me!

    Turn down the headlights. Empty the ashtrays.
    Sweep out of the airway, what's left of our time.
    Oh, you can use my body to
    do what you have to, but stay a little longer, stay with me
