Well if I'm sorry
Does that mean I have to change
'Cause change does scare me
I'd like to know how I would feel

And if you'll have me
I won't leave or make you hurt
'Cause I need you
And I hope you'll let me

Stay
For today
You'll let me stay
For today

So when I see you
Please understand the way I think
Your smile it heals me
I never want to go away

Believe I love you
No matter how selfish I get
I know you'll help me
The way I feel I won't forget

You'll let me stay
You'll let me stay
For today

I feel cold sometimes
I turn my faith to fear
I seem so lost sometimes
Can you find it?
Can you find it?

And if I'm sorry
Does that mean I have to change
'Cause change does scare me
I'd like to know how I would feel

And if you'll have me
I won't leave or make you hurt
'Cause I need you
And I hope you'll let me

Stay
For today
You'll let me stay
For today
You'll let me stay
For today
You'll let me stay
For today

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”
