Lyrics

But You Stay

Written By: Neil Currie

But you stay

I was born quirky, my thermostat’s too high.
So loosey-goosey, my mind is on the fly.

What day is it today? What did you just say?
Others drift away, but you stay.

I see your lips move, my mind is just not here,
I finish things I start in about a year.

What day is it today? What did you just say?
One of my socks is green, one is grey.

You and I, making it
Are chalk and cheese
I fell for you, you for me,
You didn’t know I had A.D.D.

You think in straight lines you always plan ahead.
You pay my parking fines and win our daily bread.

What day is it today? What did you just say?
Others drift away, but you stay.
