slay the night
and I promise, I won't die,
without you there, I can't,
I can't close my eyes

But I can't leave myself tonight,
there I was, a bit lost inside

Now waiting for eveything,
to fall into place,
and waiting for everything,
to fall

most nights
I, cry, myself awake,
as she waits my love,
my love falls away
Now I sit alone,
and began today
an wonder why, everything went this way

Now waiting for eveything,
to fall into place,
and waiting for everything,
to fall into place,
waiting for everything,
to fall

and I,
cry myself awake,
and I cry myself awake...

    General CommentBut I thought that it was "Stay the night, I promise
    that I won't bite, c'ause without you there,
    I can't, I can't close my eyes" ?

    My InterpretationThe lyrics should read:

    Stay the night and I promise I won't die
    Without you there, I can't
    I can't close my eyes
    But I can't leave myself tonight
    There I was, still lost inside

    Now waiting for everything
    to fall into place
    Waiting for everything
    to fall

    Most nights I cry myself awake
    As she waits, my love
    My love falls away
    Well I sit alone again today
    Wondering why everything went this way

    Now waiting for everything
    to fall into place
    Waiting for everything
    to fall into place
    Waiting for everything
    to fall

    And I cry myself awake
    And I cry myself awake

    General Commenti swear 'stay the night, and i promise, i won't die' is a direct reference to Team America.
    ...i mean, Dallas IS pretty ugly, he might need to pull the odd lie out for the sake of girls (and/or puppets)

    General CommentPerhaps an early version of Constant Knot? "Stay the night and I promise I won't bite
    Without you there, I can't
    I can't close my eyes"
