'Stay' was written and performed by Reuben Hudson for the New Zealand web-series 'Lovely Little Losers', which can be found on YouTube.

The video where this song was originally performed can be found here:



Baby in blue, I saw you
Sitting alone across the way
Baby you know how to
Flip my day upside down anyway
I know I just met you,
But I feel like there's something I should say
I gotta go, but if I leave you will be okay?

Cos' if not I can

Stay, oh
And just listen to what you say
I can stay, oh
And sit with you all day
I don't mind either way

Can I steal away for tonight?
If I took you by the hand, would you mind?
We can drink this bottle of wine
I can't pronounce it's name, but I'm sure it will be fine
Take a walk around the lake
I'm not in a rush so we can
Take our time

Cos' I don't wanna go
I wanna

Stay, oh
You won't hear me complain
I can stay, oh
I can miss my train
Cos' if I'm home or with you it's the same

Don't tell me that your fine
I know that look in your eyes
Let me distract you for a little while
Let's forget time
I can take you away
We can forget this place
Don't let this day I met you go to waste

I can stay, oh
I can stay, oh
