I’ve been working on a song, on and off, for a few years called “Would You Stay?”. I’ve been stuck on finishing up the lyrics, mainly the chorus and ending. I’ve got a rough draft recorded with looping drums, and some lyrics aren’t recorded. Completing this has been daunting. I need help with the quality of the lyrics.
Here they are:
I’m hardly ever satisfied
I’m hiding behind my pride
Can’t you see? It was something long ago
It’s part of me, this lump in my throat
If the flame went out tonight
With no sparks to re-ignite
Would you try to keep me warm
Or leave me to the storm?
It’s not too late for sorry
Or too late to say
I’m not asking for stories
I’m asking “Would you stay, or walk away?”
If I fell into pieces
Would you put me back together
If my light didn’t shine
Would you show me the way?
If I were rendered speechless
Would you be my song?
If I were to go blind
Would we see eye to eye?
The more you get to know me I am terrified
Will you like what you find behind my front?
The pieces put together a consolation prize
When will you decide what you want?
Would you stay?
Should you, could you?
Repeated in cadence with the instruments
Thanks for listening and for your feedback!
