    Lyrics

    [Talib Kweli]
    Yeah ... this is the best part of the trip
    Hold on to something, hold on to something
    We about to take the road less travelled
    You ain't gotta go home, but you can't stay here
    Let's go

    [Kendra Ross] (Talib Kweli)
    I get lonelier each time
    You go away I lose my mind
    I lay awake til you come and make things right (yeah yeah)
    I get lonelier each time you go away (cmon)
    So baby won't you stay with me tonight? (yeah)

    [Talib Kweli]
    Check it out
    There's this lady I'm in love with (yes there is)
    Living inside this woman unknown
    But she's scared to let it show
    I know it sound like some bug shit (yeah it do)
    It's just she come with
    Hang-ups and
    Insecurities they gotta go
    She always nervous around me
    But see this lady inside
    She's ready to be my baby tonight
    And ever since this lady found me
    This woman think I'm dangerous
    And ain't ready to put her safety aside
    I try to tell her that I got her back
    And no matter where we at
    In our lives
    I'll treat her like she my girl
    I asked her "What's wrong with dat?" (What's wrong with dat?)
    She like "It just ain't right
    There's so many more women and men in the world"
    I have to admit the girl got a point (true)
    Maybe my ambition's made to make me want something I just can't have
    So now it's time for me to blow this joint
    I still know I'm in love
    I just stay focused
    And true to my path
    Word

    [Kendra Ross] (Talib Kweli)
    I get lonelier each time
    You go away I lose my mind
    I lay awake til you come and make things right (yeah yeah)
    I get lonelier each time you go away (uhh)
    So baby won't you stay with me tonight? (yeah yeah)

    [Talib Kweli]
    I got to get away
    Ladies you ever felt growing away
    By your man
    Asking "Baby, won't you stay?"
    He chilling with his crew
    He should be building with you
    He got you feeling the blues
    Cause the children to glue
    He willing to do
    Whatever it takes
    To save 'em
    From a fate he can't see when he misbehaving
    Brave men don't let they ladies
    Raise they children theyself
    You're so busy trying to save 'em
    That you you're killing yourself
    With the
    Stress and strife
    And the fights and the advice
    From the ladies of the night
    Who can't run they own life
    Up in your air
    Nothing is fair
    Why do you care?
    Why do you always take it there?
    The crying, the tears
    You ain't prepared for the jewels
    That I'm trying to share
    Flying there
    Dying inside
    Hot in the fear
    The writing is clear
    On the wall
    For you to read the sign
    Ayo the fine is the way we design
    To be fine
    But still ...

    [Kendra Ross]
    I get lonelier each time (I get so lonely)
    You go away I lose my mind
    I lay awake til you come and make things right
    (mmmmmmm .. make it right, make it right, make it right)
    I get lonelier each time you go away (la la la la la la la laaaa)
    So baby won't you stay with me tonight?

    [Talib Kweli]
    Gotta go, I gotta go, I gotta go
    Gotta go, I gotta go, I gotta go
    Gotta go, I gotta go, I gotta go
    Gotta, Gotta
    Gotta go, I gotta go, I gotta go
    Gotta go, I gotta go, I gotta go
    Gotta go, I gotta go, I gotta go
    Gotta, Gotta

    Yo
    You can tell when people wanna spend they life together
    Despite the weather
    They treat each other like a treasure
    Can't fight forever
    You got to give it up
    I ain't got a lot of time
    We got to live it up
    I make my music like I make my love
    People use it like they take they drugs
    In the morning
    When they waking up
    This music got me out late but
    I holla at you when I'm done
    Don't stay up
    Will love play with us?
    It sting like paper cuts
    Doused in alcohol
    But if it's real
    They ain't no greater rush
    I got faith in us
    It's only you who really know me
    I be surrounded by people
    And still feel lonely

    [Kendra Ross]
    So baby won't you stay (why won't you stay?)
    Baby won't you stay? (why won't you stay?)
    Baby won't you stay with me tonight? (ohhhhh)
    Stay with me tonight
    Stay with me tonight
    Ohhhhh
    Cmon
