Why Stay? / A Promise Lyric

 
Alice Ripley Lyrics

Why Stay? / A Promise DIANA:

Why stay?



Why stay?

So steadfast and stolid

And stoic and solid

for day after every day

Why stay?

Why stay?

Why not simply give in and get on with living cause everyone knows you tried

but somehow, something died on the way

So tell me why you stay

DIANA & NATALIE:

Why stay?

Why stay?

Enduring and coping and hurting and Hoping for day after f**king day

Why stay?

Why stay?

Why not simply end it

We'd all comprehend it and most of the world

would say he's better off that way to be free and maybe so is she

DAN (HENRY):

A promise a boy says forever

A boy says whatever may come will come through

and who can know how when all I know now to be true,

is this promise that I made to you.

A question a boy wonders whether (a boy wonders

should I stay) should I stay together the way that they stay

(ohhh either way) for year after year for love or fear either way

thats the promise that I made that day

Here's what I say to the girl who was burning so brightly

Like the light from Orion above

And still I will search for her nightly if you see her please send her my love

And the boy was a boy for all seasons

That boy is long lost to me now (long lost, so lost)

And the man has forgotten his reasons (his reasons ohhh)

But the man still remembers his vow.

A promise a man says forever

A man says I'll never regret or let you

The promise I made to stay and I stay true.

Knowing one day we'd remember that joy You'd remember that girl

I'd remember that boy till we do

The promise I made I'll make it brand new.

A promise that I made to you.
