you say Stay.

O Yesh! I found this song that i really like but never really knew the title until i heard it playing on some korean movie on tv and stayed till the credit roll just so i could get the tittle of this song...a good song must be shared:)

This song is pretty old...all the way back to 1994, i can't believe that i actually catergorise something from the 1990's as being 'old' gosh. my kids would probably label the music i listen to in the future as 'oldies and classics'....then what would become of the oldies and classics that we label as so now? As ashin once asked, how long does it take for a song to be known as an old song...?多少時間,才能讓一首新歌變老歌?

Have a listen i think it's really pretty good. :)

Stay (I missed you)
by Lisa Loeb

Lyrics for Stay
You say, I only hear what I want to
You say, I talk so all the time, so

And I thought what I felt was simple
And I thought that I don't belong
And now that I am leavin'
Now I know that I did somethin' wrong 'cause I missed you
Yeah... I missed you

And you say, I only hear what I want to
I don't listen hard
Don't pay attention to the distance that you're runnin'
To anyone, anywhere, I
Don't understand if you really care
I'm only hearing negative
No, no, no (bad)

So I, I turn the radio on, I turn the radio up
And this woman was singin' my song
Lover's in love and the other's run away
Lover is crying 'cause the other won't stay
Some of us hover while we're waiting for the other who was
Dyin' since the day they were born, well
Well, this is not that, think that I'm throwin'
But I'm thrown

And I thought I'd live forever
But now I'm not so sure
You try to tell me that I'm clever
That won't take me anyhow, or anywhere
With you

You said that I was naive, and (naive...)
I thought that I was strong, oh
I thought, 'hey, I can leave, I can leave', oh (leave...)
But now I know that I was wrong, 'cause I missed you
Yeah... I miss you

You said, "You caught me 'cause you want me"
And one day you let me go
You try to keep away a keeper
Or keep me 'cause you know you're just so
Scared to lose

And you say, "stay"

You say, I only hear what I want to.

Read up on the singer here* i have not heard much of this singer regretfully, but she started out as an indie singer and this was the song which propelled her to where she needed to be. Thankfully, this is such a song not to be missed. :)Link
