“Stay” Lyrics Aaron Watson Lyrics

Like an old troubadour, like the boots on my floor
Like a Springsteen record spinning ’round and ’round
Like a rake and a rambler, an outlaw and gambler
A wayward gypsy at the lost and found
Like a band on the run, like the prodigal son
Got the feather in the wind feeling in my soul
No matter where I’m at, you’re where I hang my hat
Tonight I’m making my way back home

When I wake you in the morning
Your kiss on my lips always hits me like the desert rain
You take my rough around the edges
You tie my loose ends and you braided me a velvet chain
I need your soft skin against my face, I’m your leather, you’re my lace
The way you love me when I’m leaving, when it’s time for me to ride away
You make me wanna stay

Like old Willie’s guitar, like a neon Lonestar
Just like all my drifting honky tonkin’ friends
Rolling from town to town, we throw it up, we tear it down
Back on the road again by 2am
All those last call late nights, no shows and bar fights
I need you like a tonic to my bottle of gin
You always take my empty cup then you fill it back up
You take my heart and top it off again

When I wake you in the morning
Your kiss on my lips always hits me like the desert rain
You take my rough around the edges
You tie my loose ends and you braided me a velvet chain
I need your soft skin against my face, I’m your leather you’re my lace
The way you love me when I’m leaving, when it’s time for me to ride away
Girl, you make me wanna stay

And I know, that you know that you can’t tie me down
And you know, that I know that you got just what I need to keep me hanging around

When I wake you in the morning
Your kiss on my lips always hits me like the desert rain
You take my rough around the edges
You tie my loose ends and you braided me a velvet chain
I need your soft skin against my face, I’m your leather, you’re my lace
The way you love me when I’m leaving, when it’s time for me to ride away
The way you love me when I’m leaving, when it’s time for me to ride away
The way you love me when I’m leaving, when the cowboy has to ride away

You make me wanna stay
