I Wish We Could Stay Here



 Genre: Country-Western

Get Flash to see this player.

I wrote this one WAAYYY back in the mid-70s when my lovely wife and I were dating. This performance is by our trio, Three Husbands on the Loose. No special effects were employed during the making of this recording. Same theme as "Wouldn't It Be Nice" by the Beach Boys - but quite different.

I wish we could stay here
Out in the night with the radio on
The lights are off and the windows down
A summer breeze and a moonlit sky
A whisper of love and a soft, sweet sigh

I wish we could stay here
In a cheap motel in a one-horse town
A rendezvous when the sun goes down
If I stopped to think it would hurt my pride
But I stop to know all the love inside

Runnin’ around in the dark of the night
Keeping our feelings just out of sight
The moments together they feel so right
And I wish we could stay here

(Instrumental verse)

Here in your arms it just can’t be wrong
The rest of the world may as well be gone
Without you to hold me I just can’t go on...

I wish we could stay here
In a friend’s apartment with the lights down low
Two more hours and we’ll have to go
Two more hours and the tears will fall
Then I’ll be waiting for you to call

I love you (I love you) I love you
And I wish we could stay here.

Just a folk singer. Well - mostly a folk singer, but I like to try just about every style a middle-class white guy from Mid-Michigan can sincerely try. Be sure to check out my "band" — I used to play R&R with these guys back in the 70s, but now we'... [see more]
