Mariah Carey
[Verse 1]
Gm              Eb7
Doesn't it ever stay
F7                  D7
Must it always fade away
Gm                 Eb7
Couldn't love ever be
          F7            D7
Something tangible and real
Gm  Cm                Eb7
Farewell, fairweather friend
       F7              D7
Abandonment returns to taunt me again

[Chorus]
Gm     Cm            F7
I only wanted you to stay
           Bb       F7        Gm
Linger and mean the words you said
          Cm       F7
Foolishly I romanticized
            Bb        F7
Someone was saving my life
        Gm
For the first time
       Cm            A
I only wanted you to be there when I
D7           Gm
Opened up my eyes

[Verse 2]
       Gm                  Eb7
I was caught in your masquerade
         F7                D7
Wish I'd stayed beneath my veil
       Gm                  Eb7
But it just seemed so easy to
     F7           D7
Open up myself to you
Gm   Cm            Eb7
Once more into the wind
           F7
The embers scatter
        D7
And the chill settles in

  Gm     Cm            F7
I only wanted you to stay
           Bb       F7        Gm
Linger and mean the words you said
          Cm       F7
Foolishly I romanticized
            Bb        F7
Someone was saving my life
        Gm
For the first time
       Cm            A
I only wanted you to be there when I
D7           Gm
Opened up my eyes

A#m    D#m           G#7
I only wanted you to stay
           C#       G#7       A#m
Linger and mean the words you said
          D#m      G#7
Foolishly I romanticized
            C#        G#7
Someone was saving my life
        A#m
For the first time
       D#m           G#7
I only wanted you to be
           C#     G#7         A#m
The one to get me through the night
       D#m
I only wanted you
   F
To be there when I
             A#m
Opened up my eyes

Oh
A#m             D#m     F
Doesn't it ever stay?

I only wanted you to
A#m
Stay
