"Stay Where I Can See You" as written by and Watts/gryskiewicz/golla/vasoli....
For months you've been away
You're here a couple days
I've got all the time in the world
To do with what we please

If it were up to me,
We'd have all the time in the world
Just stay right where I can see you

When you go away I get so low
Like temperatures when their at their coldest
When you go away I get so lonely
I get so lonely

I'm stranded by the side of the bed
I would name all 50 states
48 get in the way
Of me being next to you (me being next to you)
If it were up to me
We'd have everything we need
You'd have me and I'd have you
Just stay right where

I could be anyone you want
But I"m glad I got the job
I've got something in mind and
We've got all this time

When you go away, I get so low
Like temperatures when they're at their coldest
When you go away I get so lonely
I'm stranded by the side of the bed

    General CommentThis song is amamzing. It seems to be about a long distance type relationship. Or at least one or the other might not be around a lot. A lot of feeling in this song.

    General CommentSigh....so true. This reminds me of my best friend. After going through a bad breakup, I got closer to my him. Then he moved away to Florida from Jersey and went through a breakup just like mine. Now we realize that we could really have something going if it wasn't for the fact that we live in two different states.

    General CommentThis is about a guy and a girl. The girl moves away, but comes back to visit a little at a time. 48 states get in the way of the guy being close to the girl. He gets really lonely when she leaves, and cannot stand her being away from him. He wants her to always be where he can see her.

    General CommentA song of loneliness, missing someone that lives or moves away or keeps leaving you for whatever reason... and you just want them near you, around.
