about

He met her in a bar. It never really felt like the pieces fit. But she was good at not looking at those pieces. The sex was really good. So they stayed. Inertia is a powerful force. After a while though, even the booze couldn’t put enough distance between them. Then one night, at their bar, she surprised both of them. She got up and never came back. The symmetry was crushing and lovely.

lyrics

YOU STAY
copyright 2007 john common music

I'm getting up and I ain’t coming back
she says this at the heart attack
third table from the back

I love you but when you lose your buzz
you see totally clear it ain’t like it was
even if it ever was

you don't want to see me I know
you don't want to see me so I'll go
you stay, you stay

I know I'll see you at the same old bars
drivin' around in your car
you're never too far

'cause no one ever has the balls to leave
they just make believe
like they’re adam and eve

you don't want to see me I know
you don't want to see me so I'll go
you stay
