I Can't Stay

The Giving Tree Band - Vacilador

Featured on:

I’ve been pushing five hundred miles a day

And I could’ve done more but you know I can’t stay away

And Lord I can’t stay


I wanna do right

Wanna do right

Wanna do right


She said I’m gonna phone your mother or tell your brother

I saw you outside trying to cause yourself pain

What do I need to do to get you to come in out of the rain


Are you in love with the man with the covered eyes

The sweet morning dew or the starry twilight

Now it could be wrong or it could be right

But what do I need to do to get you home tonight


I’ve been out there on the road and I find myself alone

The place where I’m forgotten is the place that I’ll call home

Little red barn down on Anna’s farm

I never meant to hurt you, I never meant to do you harm

But what do I need to do to tell you

In the morning I’ll be gone
