about

"Stick Around" was written in 2002 and originally recorded in 2008 for an album called Failing Upwards that never came together (I failed; just not upwards). The rhythm section on this track is amazing: Tony Levin on the bass (using Funk Fingers!) and Anton Fig on drums. Gabe Cummins was the guitarist on this one, and it was mixed by Dave Way.

lyrics

It's on
The long night is ending
It's off
You can't keep defending him
That douche
He drove you right into my arms

Now hold on
I'm not telling you to hate him
I'm wrong
If I give an ultimatum now
But how long
Do I have to be the other guy?

I've lived so long off of nothing
I'm choking on all this something
Alone ain't fun, but it's easy
I don't need this now

Phone rings
You don't have to get it, you can
Hang up
Before you regret it, c'mon
Don't cry
Just call me and forget it
'Til he beeps in
Man, he's never gonna let it go

Now hold on
I'm not telling you to hate him
I know I'm gone
If I give an ultimatum now
But how long
Do I have to be the big man?

I've lived so long off of nothing
I'm choking on all this something
Alone ain't fun, but it's easy
I don't need this now

All rise
This court is now in session
It's the case of The People
vs. Your Weird Obsession
With an ex-boyfriend
Who plays it sober and repentant
When it's crystal fucking clear
He's just a desperate codependent
And your best friend boomerangs
From jealousy to pity
Yeah, she thinks this is an episode
Of "Sex and the City"
And the harmless boys at work
Are all like, "Isn't it ironic
What she'll let me get away with
When she thinks it's all platonic"
While I hate it here in Limbo
And I wish that you would hurry
I'm aware my feelings are
The least of anybody's worries
I'm not doing this for points
I don't need you to be flattered
I just know whose opinion
Is the only one that matters
So
I'll stick around
'Til you make up your mind
I'll stick around
I'll wait for you to call
I'll stick around

I've lived so long off of nothing
I'm choking on all this something
Alone ain't fun, but it's easy
I don't need this now
