Stay

You may have watched the Grammy’s the other week and you may have seen Justin Timberlake looking so freaking adorable on stage and Taylor Swift’s freak show. You may have seen another performance that I think wasn’t talked about enough. It was Rihanna’s performance. She sang her song titled “Stay” with Mikky Ekko, an artist I hadn’t ever heard of before. The performance wasn’t flashy or energetic like the others. There weren’t any crazy special effects or backup dancers. It was just those two singing up on stage, standing in one place the whole time. This performance didn’t need all that stuff because that song in itself was enough. It was slow and the words were meaning full and heartfelt. I’ve always liked Rihanna as an artist, but this song is different from the one’s I’ve heard her sing in the past. “Stay” was about something real and the way she sang the song really made me believe every word she was saying. It has become one of my new favorite songs. Another reason that I like it so much is because I know what she is singing about. I’ve felt the same way. There have been people in my life that I’ve wanted to stick around and be in my life forever that didn’t. Also, there are people in my life right now that I hope never leave. If you haven’t heard the song yet you need to look it up right now. It’s completely amazing and it is practically impossible not to feel something when you listen to it.

Here are the lyrics if you want to sing along.

Stay by Rihanna featuring Mikky Ekko

All along it was a fever
A cold sweat hot-headed believer
I threw my hands in the air and said, “Show me something,”
He said, “If you dare come a little closer.”

Round and around and around and around we go
Oh now tell me now tell me now tell me now you know

Not really sure how to feel about it.
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you.
It takes me all the way.
I want you to stay

It’s not much of a life you’re living
It’s not just something you take – it’s given

Round and around and around and around we go
Oh now tell me now tell me now tell me now you know

Not really sure how to feel about it.
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you.
It takes me all the way.
I want you to stay.

Oh the reason I hold on
Oh cause I need this hole gone
Funny you’re the broken one but I’m the only one who needed saving
Cause when you never see the light it’s hard to know which one of us is caving

Not really sure how to feel about it.
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you.
It takes me all the way.
I want you to stay, stay.
I want you to stay, oh.
