If I build a wall
A hundred feet tall
Would that keep you in?
If I shackled your feet
So you couldn’t leave
Would you try and run?

If I promise not to fight
At least not tonight
Would you stay the night?
If I wore that little dress
That you like the best
Would you pass my test?

Would you stay?
Would you stay with me?
Would you stay?
Would you stay with me?

If I poured another drink
What would you think
About staying in?
If I was sincere
And whispered my fears
Would you still be here?

Would you stay?
Would you stay with me?
Would you stay?
Would you stay with me?
With me

Would you stay?
Would you stay with me?
Would you stay?
Would you stay with me?

If I build a wall
A hundred feet tall
Would that keep you in?

    General CommentThe repitition effectively shows the need and the longing of the person who desperately wants the other person to stay. A touching song.
