Alessia and I first met at rehearsals for the HALO awards, where Alessia, Daya and I performed together. I've loved her songs before but realized that she's an unbelievable talent when we started rehearsing together so I asked her if she was interested in making music with me.

LyricsEdit

Waitin' 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
Livin' 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 tickin', so stay
All you have to do is wait a second, your hands on mine
The clock is tickin', so stay

(All you have to do is)
(All you have to do is 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
Guess I need you, and I need to

Make it on my own, but I don't wanna grow up
We can stay forever young
Livin' 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 tickin', so stay
All you have to do is wait a second, your hands on mine
The clock is tickin', so stay

(All you have to do is)
(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 tickin', so stay
All you have to do is wait a second, your hands on mine
The clock is tickin', so stay

All you have to do is stay
