Carrie - Stay Here Instead Lyrics

2012 Off-Broadway revival musical
Carrie the Musical - Stay Here Instead Lyrics


(Spoken)
Margaret: He's not coming.
Carrie: He is coming.
Margaret: Don't you see? You mustn't go!

Margaret:
Stay here instead
Just tell me what you'd like to do
We'll talk and we'll laugh
And I'll sing to you
And I promise we won't fight
Don't leave tonight

Carrie:
Momma, I'm late.

Margaret:
The boy doesn't care
Not at all

Carrie:
He'll be here at eight.

Margaret:
He'll build you up only to watch you fall
Carrie!
You don't know these people
They're not your friends
Carrie!
They're only waiting to tear you in two

(Spoken)
Carrie: What if they like me?

Margaret:
Just like you're father
They'll leave when they're through

(Spoken)
Carrie. They might like me. They'll like me.

Margaret:
You're such a fool
You're such a fool
Aren't you aware how people deceive?

They'll take you and break you
And then they will leave you
Carrie, Carrie

Carrie,
You are the love I was betrayed for
My pride and my shame
My Carrie
Carrie, we're one and the same
Oh, Carrie

Carrie:
Momma, I love you

Margaret:
Carrie…

Carrie:
Momma, I'll always love you

Margaret:
Don't go.
Don't go.
Don't go.

(Spoken)
Margaret: I'll say you're sick! I'll say you've changed you mind!
Carrie: You'll say nothing, Mama! You'll stay here, and not say a word!
