intro:

G F C C F G

Em Am F D7

 

G F C C F G Say 'goodbye' before you leave me. Baby, give me one last kiss.

Em Am F G Close the door behind you. Know that you'll be missed.

Bm F#m Bm F#m I watched you pack your bags up. I saw you stallin' more than twice.

A Bm D E If you are having any doubts, how about some advice?

 

chorus:

A G D Bm D Stay, baby, stay. It doesn't gotta be this way.

G F C Bb D7 Stay, baby, stay. Why do you wanna run, why do you wanna run away?

 

{intro}

 

Hidin' in the garden, while my heart is in the Hall.

I hear your voice echo through my head. I'm hoping that you'll call.

Maybe you'll tell me that you miss me. Baby, I'm also missing you.

And if you ask me to come on over, what I say will still be true.

 

{chorus}

 

{intro}

 

You asked me what I was thinkin'. I told you what I was fearful of:

No one wants to be forgotten. No one wants to lose their Love.

Feelings can often be confusing. Words are subject to this, too.

All that matters is that I still Love you and I want to work this thru.

 

{chorus}

 

{intro}

 

I can't regret what has happened, though I didn't plan it out this way.

But now I know that I'll always miss you if you decide to move away.

So come back home and I will give you more attention and respect,

more praise and tenderness. We both deserve nothing less.

 

{chorus}

 

G F C C F G Stay, baby, stay. It doesn't gotta be this way.

Em Am F D7 Stay, baby, stay. Why do you wanna run, why do you wanna run a-

G way?
