Come And Stay With Me: Marianne Faithfull

I’ll send away all my false pride
And I’ll forsake our love my lies.
Yes, I’ll be as true, as true can be
If you’ll come and stay with me.

Lovers of the past I’ll leave behind,
There’ll never be another on my mind.
I’ll do all I can so you’ll feel free
If you’ll come and stay with me.

The promises I made most faithfully,
I’ll keep still, should you decide to leave.
I’ll try and see that you have all you need
If you come and stay with me.

We’ll live a life no one has ever known,
But I know you’re thinking that I’m hardly grown.
But O thank God, at last and finally
I can see you’re gonna stay with me.

But O thank God, at last and finally
I can see you’re gonna stay with me.

Marianne Faithfull 1946-
