"Stuck" as written by Norah Jones and Will Sheff....
You shove your way
Through the room from the street
And finally to me
You ask me what I'm drinking

My friend Johnny
Tugging on my sleeve
Asks if I wanna leave
But what I'm really thinking is

Why can't it be easy
Easy
Why don't you leave
Leave me
Leave me be
I can see you swaying
I can't hear what you're saying

I'm sitting here stuck
And plastered to my seat
I think up a reason to leave
When you finally stop speaking
I'll take a long slow
Walk down Washington Street
Half asleep on my feet
Half aware if I'm dreaming

I'll go home alone
A sinking stone
A switched off telephone
I'll go on and be free
A frozen breeze
A fallen down factory
But I still see you swaying
And I can't hear what you're saying

I just lost the plot
Got a little caught
In a little knot
I just hit a wall
Had a little fall
Felt the swinging wrecking ball

And why should that be
Why don't you tell me
Why don't you tell me
I'm sure you'll tell me
Why don't you tell me
I guess you'll tell me
Tell me

    Lyric CorrectionThis song is beautiful.....but the lyrics here are all wrong here. Its....

    You shove your way through the room from the street and finally to me and ask me what I'm drinking.
    My friend Johnny tuggin on my sleeve, asks if I want to leave but what Im really thinking is

    Why cant it be easy easy
    Why dont you leave, leave me, leave me be

    I can see you swaying but I cant hear what you're saying

    Im sitting here stuck and plastered to my seat, I think up a reason to leave when you finally stop speaking. Take a long slow walk down washington street, half asleep on my feet, but half awake if Im dreaming
    I go home alone, a sinking stone, a switched off telephone
    Ill go on and be free, a frozen breeze, a fallen down factory

    But I can see you swaying, but I cant hear what youre saying

    I just lost the plot, got a little caught, then a little knot
    I just hit a wall, had a little fall, felt a swinging recking ball
    and why should that be...why dont you tell me, i guess you'll tell me

    My InterpretationJust discovered this great album a couple of days ago... Got lured in by "Tell Yer Mama" and realized to my delight that the rest of the album is just as good.

    This song is a beautiful, poignant description of what it feels like to fall in love (or back in love) with someone you know will be trouble - at the moment it happens. Not just the lyrics but the melody as well. Makes me want to go out there and get my heart broken by someone ;)
