Story

We've all been there. The one with whom we want to be is madly, crazily in love with someone else, and that someone else takes advantage and even dishes out some bad treatment. But the one to whom we are attracted doesn't seem to notice the ill treatment until it is too late and then wants to get far, far away. Do you try to attract your "interests" attention; do you risk being a rebound; do you risk rejection? That's what this song is about. It's simple, to the point, guitar-bass-drums-vocal, but not too polished as to leave a little tension and angst in the mix.

Lyrics

He was a fool,

Didn't do right by you,

So there was nothing else you could do.

 

He did you wrong,

But you hung in there too long,

And all the time so all alone.

 

Chorus

 

(But) Why can't you stay, here with me?

Why must you go away?

Why can't you stay, and fall in love again?

Why can't you stay, here with me?

Why must you go away?

Why can't you stay, and fall in love again?

 

I'm not that fool,

You know I would love you,

'Cause there's nothing else I could do.

 

So, don't go away,

Turnaround and look back this way,

Tell me, is there something else I can say?

 

(Chorus)

 

(Bridge)

 

Why can't you stay and fall in love again?

Why can't you stay and fall in love?

Why can't you stay and fall in love again, love again?

Why can't you stay and fall in love again?

 

I'm not that fool,

You know I would love you,

'Cause there's nothing else I could do.

 

So, don't go away,

Turnaround and walk back this way,

Tell me, is there something else I can say?

 

(Chorus and Repeats)
