Will You Stay Lyrics

A New Rock Musical
Lizzie Borden the Musical - Will You Stay Lyrics

LIZZIE (spoken)
I'm afraid somebody will do something.
I don't know what, but somebody will do something

(sung)
I want to sleep
With my eyes half open
One eye open half the time

ALICE
But if you close your eyes you'll see
The golden pear it hides the key
That can open up your heart
And end your toil
See how they ripen on the bough
Now they're falling to the ground
To be gathered up in skirts
Before they soil

Will you lay next to me
In the shade of the tree
Will you bite through the skin
To the sweet flesh within
Will you rest a while
Let me bring back your smile
Will you lay next to me
Will you stay

LIZZIE (spoken)
I've ought to be on my way

ALICE
The pear is jealous of the rose
Because she hears of all your woes
But she never gets a chance
To taste your pleasure
And though she's luscious to the taste
She's always eaten in great haste
For the autumn winds that blow
Steal all her treasure

Will you lay next to me
In the shade of the tree
Will you bite through the skin
To the sweet flesh within
Will you rest a while
Let me bring back your smile
Will you lay next to me
Will you stay

Sleep sleep sleep
I'll keep my eyes half open
One eye open all the time
