Sam Smith - Stay With Me Lyrics

Sam Smith Lyrics

Stay With Me Lyrics
[Verse 1:]
Guess it's true, I'm not good at a one-night stand
But I still need love cause I'm just a man
These nights never seem to go to plan
I don't want you to leave, will you hold my hand?

Oh, won't you stay with me?
Cause you're all I need
This ain't love it's clear to see
But darling, stay with me

[Verse 2:]
Why am I so emotional?
No it's not a good look, gain some self control
And deep down I know this never works
But you can lay with me so it doesn't hurt

[Chorus 3x]
