Lyrics

STAY

In a land faraway called Eltham,
Where the trees meet the sky and shout,
Calling you, pulling you, ripping you open,
Demanding your love “Let it out! Let it out!”

There’s a house on a hill with a maiden,
And that’s a fair word to use to describe her.
She’ll take you back to lands long gone,
When you rode in a suit of armour till your quest was finally done.

And she’ll greet you with a smile so bright,
You won’t notice that she’s wearing white,
Her hair a dark red forest entangling your heart,
And you’ll talk till the day becomes night.

She might feed you a plate of corn cakes,
With bonconccini and avocado,
Read you her poetry, play her favourite music,
And tell tales of her Himalayan crossing on a bike.

And your heart will…
Stay!
You will, you will, you will, you will…
Stay!
Go where you must go but you just know,
Your heart will…
Stay!
You will, you will, you will, you will…
Stay!
Go where you must go but you just know,
You just know.......


Then I paint my love for this maiden,
And my words are like rain on the desert,
She takes them all with an honoured smile,
See I wear no more bloody armour; I lie naked in the sun.

But her truth is the world of healing,
And the path in her heart is what’s right.
Her love is her self and in her heart and in her soul,
And she speaks infused with light.

Oh I yearn to hold her gently,
Caress and kiss her completely,
Stay with her, love with her; grow till we’re old,
Till our days are done.

But she bades me farewell with a kiss,
And the touch of her lips lingers like mist,
So I go but I ask God one time,
That all of love be as sweet, as sweet, as sweet ……..

My heart has stayed,
I will, I will, I will, I will,
Stay.
I’ll go where I must go,
But I just know my heart has,
Stayed!
I will, I will, I will, I will,
Stay.
I'll go where I must go,
But I just know...
I just know....
I just know....
My heart has.....
Stayed.
