Stay

Can I stay here with you till the morning
I am so far from home and i feel a little stoned
so can i stay here with you till the morning?
There’s nothing i want more than to wake up on your floor
So lay with me in your thinnest dress
fill my heart with each caress

So can I stay here with you, till the day breaks?
There’s something you should know
I ain’t got no place to go

- Ray Lamontagne

  1. I love the image and the accompanying words. When I first read the title to your post, a song popped in my head but I couldn’t – at first – remember what or who……. Then I did an internet search and remembered and just listened to a wonderful song – entitled Stay by Lisa Loeb. Listen and watch here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ka9mCmx9Jhs

    • Yes, I know the Lisa Loeb song, but I completely forgot about it! So thanks for reminding me Meanderer, I’m going to have a listen right now…It’s really been too long since I’ve heard it.

  2. “Then I found myself alone / Hoping someone would miss me / Thinking about my home / And the last woman to kiss me, kiss me” (Cat Stevens)

    Speaking of roads taken & directions, man, we had to talk about the side of these roads. Where we find the lonesomeness of a bench that brings back sweet memories of summer, the wine & the woman. Now left all behind & still miles to go. Ready to do what Lucinda Williams once sang in an old traditionel tune: Make me a pallet on your floor.

    All these fading moments in one silent frame. All the restlessness in one great composition. And all the isnspiration in one excellent shot, Jean-Pierre. Mighty, mighty, mighty fine, my friend!

    All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.

    • Indeed, it’s not only about the road, the journey, it’s about all the small things on the way, all the things we might miss if we don’t pay attention…

      Thanks so much, man. Hope it’s not too cold over there, hope you’re heart is warm.

    • Yep, the lyrics sure are. They are simple, but they say all that needs saying…
