You won't give me any lines
So I'll connect the dots
You've got quitting on your mind
You have fleeing in your thoughts

That are mired in the past
They cannot hurt us
The present is ours
It would not desert us
The future is vast
It makes you nervous
I'm in love with you
That's the only rule
That we have to follow

So sweetie
Why not stay
So sweetie
Why not stay

I hope for the best
You expect the worst
My heart is sailing west
Yours is waiting in the hearse
But I am not so tender
You are not so tough
You're in love with me
I thought that was enough

The past is a tome
And it's poorly worded
The present is hung
It gives no verdict
The future is vast
And far from perfect
I'm in love with you
That's the only truth
That we have to swallow

So sweetie
Why not stay
So sweetie
Why not stay

So sweetie
Why not stay
So sweetie
Why not stay
Why not stay
(Stay)

You won't have to go home
You won't have to be alone
You will have to be mine, all mine, all mine
So here we go into the past
