I'd Have Liked to Stay

For Maja

We'd had a happy afternoon, now I drove you home
And though you sat beside me, I somehow felt alone
And as we arrived you said, "come in a little while"
I knew it would not happen, I didn't mind

Though I'd have liked to stay
Yes I'd have liked to stay
Yes I'd have liked to

We'd gone upstairs to your bedroom, sat down upon the floor
And we both knew that your father stood behind the door
I bet he listened if I possibly would dare to stay the night
But Lord, we didn't think about such, we said goodbye

Though I'd have liked to stay
Yes I'd have liked to stay
Yes I'd have liked to

Bridge:
So many friendships have broken away
For reasons that no-one would see
Would anyone tell me: what have I done
To deserve my being free
Again?

Far away, a little girl is lying in her bed
And though I told her it was over, she's going through my head
Oh yes I miss her, and I know that I won't see her face again
I was not looking for a lover, I need a friend

Though I'd have liked to stay
Yes I'd have liked to stay
Yes I'd have liked to stay
Yes I'd have liked to
I'd have liked to stay

November 2, 1988. Bit repetitititive in the choruses, admittedly, but I've kept them for hysterical raisins ;-)
