Lyrics

Stay
by Anna Fritz

Stay here with me.
Stay here with me.
Stay with me while I sleep.

Let your laughter settle on my pillow
as I drift away
It’s a lullaby. I’ll tell you why:
I only see you in my dreams

Stay here with me.
Stay here with me.
Stay with me while I sleep.

I remember a time
sweet, sublime
your hands in my hair.
And in the night,
to my delight,
I dream you here.

Stay here with me
Stay here with me
Stay with me while I sleep.

I dream witness in Nica.
I dream Sandanista.
Rebels on sacred ground.
And as my people divide,
my heart it cries
a balm for our pain.

Stay here with me
Stay here with me
Stay with me while I sleep.

How can we fight injustice,
the only weapons among us
our words and our songs?
But like a great decoy
inside the walls of Troy
we speak truth and we sing.

Stay here with me
Stay here with me
Stay with me while I sleep.

Now won’t you take my hand?
We’ll dream a plan,
close the distance between.
And if you’ll join me here,
embrace your fear,
we’ll flood the streets with our songs.

Stay here with me
Stay here with me
Stay with me while I sleep.
