D				       A
I've been sitting here staring at the clock on the wall
D				     A
And I've been laying here praying, praying she won't call
             Em
It's just another call from home
       G				 D	 A
You’ll get it and be gone and I'll be crying
D			   A
I'll be begging you baby, beg you not to leave
D				    A
But I'll be left here waiting' with my heart on my sleeve
            Em
Oh for the next time we'll be here
       G				     D	    A
Seems like a million years, and I think I'm dying
Em			 G
What do I have to do to make you see?
Em	   G		A
She can't love you like me


CHORUS:
               D
Why don't you stay?
                G
I'm down on my knees
                        Em
I'm so tired of being lonely
                           A
Don't I give you what you need?
          F#m         Bm
When she calls you to go
                              G
There's one thing you should know
                           Em      A
We don't have to live this way
                     D        A   Em   G   A
Baby, why don't you stay?


VERSE 2 (strummed)

D			   A
You keep telling me baby there will come a time
D			           A
When you will leave her arms and forever be in mine
       Em
Well I don't think that's the truth
       G                                       D         A
And I don't like being used and I'm tired of waiting
Em                     G
It's too much pain to have to bare
Em        G                A
To love a man you have to share


CHORUS
               D
Why don't you stay?
                G
I'm down on my knees
                       Em
I'm so tired of being lonely
                            A
Don't I give you what you need?
         F#m          Bm
When she calls you to go
                              G
There's one thing you should know
                           Em      A
We don't have to live this way
                     D
Baby, why don't you stay?


BRIDGE (3rd VERSE)

          Em
I can't take it any longer
        G
But my will is getting stronger
       Em                              A
And I think I know just what I have to do
         Em
I can't waste another minute
      G
After all that I've put in it
      Em
I've given you my best
              A
Why does she get the best of you?
    Em
So next time you find
     G                         A
You want to leave her bed for mine


CHORUS 2

               D
Why don't you stay?
                G
I'm up off my knees
                       Em
I'm so tired of being lonely
                          A
You can't give me what I need
          F#m            Bm
When she begs you not to go
                               G
There's one thing you should know
                          Em        A
I don't have to live this way
                    D       A   Em   G   A   D
Baby why don't you stay

On the chorus, Kristian Bush kinda does a walk down, on the first G to Em, and also the 
to G, you don't really have to do it, but it adds a little more to it, but it also 
fine with out it.
