Zedd, Alessia Cara – Stay

Watch the official music video for “Stay” by Zedd and Alessia Cara.

Directed by Tim Mattia, the clip examines how one small decision (or twist of fate) can impact on someone’s life. In this case, the Canadian pop star doesn’t stop an elevator for Zedd in one scenario. In the next, she does and romance blooms.

Unfortunately, things don’t end well for the budding couple. Which is strange because it’s such a happy song. “Stay” is perched at number 14 on the Billboard Hot 100. It should crack the top 10 next week (or the week after, at the latest). It’s currently sitting at number 2 on iTunes and just went top 10 on pop radio. When you factor in video views, a top 5 birth is a distinct possibility.

 
LYRICS
Waiting for the time to pass you by
Hope the winds of change will change your mind
I could give a thousand reasons why
And I know you and you’ve got to

Make it on your own but, we don’t have to grow up, we can stay forever young
Living on my sofa, drinking rum and cola, underneath the rising sun
I could give a thousand reasons why
But you’re going and you know that

All you have to do is stay
A minute
Just take
Your time
The clock
Is ticking
So stay
All you have to do is wait
A second
Your hands, on mine
The clock is ticking
So stay

Won’t admit what I already know
I’ve never been the best at letting go
I don’t wanna spend the night alone
Yes I need you
And I need to

Make it on my own but, I don’t wanna grow up, we can stay forever young
Living on my sofa, drinking rum and cola, underneath the rising sun
I could give a million reasons why
But you’re going and you know that

All you have to do is stay
A minute
Just take
Your time
The clock
Is ticking
So stay
All you have to do is wait
A second
Your hands, on mine
The clock is ticking
So stay

All you have to do is stay
All you have to do is stay
So stay
Yeah

All you have to do is stay
A minute
Just take
Your time
The clock
Is ticking
So stay
All you have to do is wait
A second
Your hands, on mine
The clock is ticking
So stay
