"Stay" as written by and Tom Barnes Paddy Dalton....
I'll go walking around in the dark of the day
Right when everything's quiet, see stars as they change
Trees sway, sag to the street drinkin' puddles of rain
Right on the corner of your old street where we once stayed

Seem so quiet...
Can't hear nothing now... But...

Once there was music that swam in the air
Crazy laughing at dishes that smash in the sink
Howling wolf on the radio, sing you to sleep
Right now, the sun coming up through the cracks in the trees

I thought you'd save me...
From myself with Love...
Love...
But alone is how I stay, from the womb to the grave

I thought you'd save me...
From myself with Love...
Love...
But alone is how I stay, from the womb to the grave

That's how I stay, from the womb to the grave
That's how I stay, from the womb to the grave

    General Commenti cant wait for UTB i think its sounds the a mixture of SWYA I.R and STA and all the other cds but more of those three of course add in chris's natural progression but ive heard the cd all played live and its beautiful and is just gunna be the new "SWYA" its gunna shoot them back into popularity i think but it seems like the whole album is based on chris's dying relationship with his wife..this song in particular is describing a street corner where him and his wife probably were and now hes seeing it and remebering all the times and the ending is saying how he is alone always has been and will be untill he is dead

    this is a beautiful song i have it and have heard it its amazing its acoustic not sure if thats the final version though ok theres my 2cents what do you all think???

    General CommentEasily the best song on the album. I don't much like the rest of it. I am an In Reverie junkie.

    General CommentThe first verse is him recognizing a fimiliar place he spent time with someone but it is just not the same anymore and makes Chris think back to those days. The "seems so quiet" part, is along the same lines of him going back to this place that looks the same but thats totally changed.

    The 2nd verse is him talking about the older times and how great is used to be. I know for a fact that Howling Wolf is a band that he was really into.

    The rest of the song or the peak of it "Thought you'd save me...with love" is him saying how he's been hurt or let down and now feels alone and will never escape that feeling.

    This song has a beautifully tradgic overtone to it and it almost sounds like a sad lullaby to me. I think this is one of Chris Conleys best written song. There seems to be alot of truth and emotion put into it and the music that compliments it is amazing.

    Viciousadvent : I agree with you. I think we both like the more melodic side to STD. I had a chance to see them a few weeks back and they played a bunch of stuff from In Reverie.
