1. Guess it's true, I'm not good at a one-night stand
Am7                  F                   C5
   But I still need love 'cause I'm just a man
Am7                     F         C
   These nights nev-er seem to go to plan
Am                     Gsus                 C5
   I don't want you to leave, will you hold my hand?

                     Am    F        C
Chorus: Oh, won't you  stay___ with me?___
                    Am   F      C
       'Cause you're  all___ I need___
                  Am            F       C
        This ain't  love it's clear to see
                     Am    F        C
        But dar-ling,  stay___ with me___

Am7       F          C
2. Why am I so e-mo-tion-al?
Am7                    F                   C5
   No it's not a good look, gain some self con-trol
   Am7              F            C
   And deep down I know this nev-er works
   Am                  Gsus           C5
   But you can lay with me so it does-n't hurt
   
  
                     Am    F        C
