lyrics

When I brush my hand across the desk
I can feel the air fill my chest
As I hear your scuffing footsteps down my hall again

When I touch the shirt that you left there
I can taste your lips and smell your hair
On the cool white sand where we laid bare in our favorite sin

And I could stay, stay here awhile
And I could stay, stay here awhile

When I take your books off the shelf, I can hear you singing to yourself
All the wrong lines to "No One Else,"
No you never knew

And when I drive my car down our block, I am parked next to your favorite stop
'Til you pull up at 5 o'clock as you always do

And I could stay, stay here awhile
Yeah I could stay, stay here awhile

And I could stay, I could stay, I could stay here awhile

It's funny how such little things can take you in and make you sing
Of all those lovely little happenings that now are gone

And while I can't move on, I can't move back
Cuz I'm stuck right here in this trap
A cell that's built of a past that's all my own

And I could stay, stay here awhile
Yeah I could stay, stay here awhile
