#SongLyricSunday ♪ “Say You’ll Haunt Me” – Stone Sour

SongLyricSunday

It’s time for another SLS post, hosted by Helen over at This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time. 

This week’s theme is: Stay

I’m sharing 2 videos this week. The first one is my official SLS pick. No matter if he’s singing vocals for Slipknot or Stone Sour, you can never go wrong with a Corey Taylor song.

The second video is actually the first song that came to mind. It’s an unofficial/fan made mash-up of “Stay” by Rihanna and the 30 Seconds to Mars cover. Reason it’s second is because I already chose this video/song for my #MusicMonday post awhile back and I’m not usually that big on repeats, but the seamless editing skills put into this video is well worth sharing again. Wish it was a real mash up, anyone got Jared Leto’s number? Ya-ya, I know, any excuse to stalk call Mr. J!

Not so sure about this Stone Sour video, honestly, but still love the song (and the car – it’s a 1972 Plymouth “Cuda” (Barracuda). Yes, I looked it up for you. You’re welcome). Enjoy!

Little supernovas in my head
Little soft pulses in my dead
Little souvenirs and secrets shared
Little off guard and unprepared

I was never good enough to find
I was never bad enough to mind
In the middle I will do my best
Take me in your arms and leave the rest

I will give you anything to

Say you want to stay, you want me too
Say you’ll never die, you’ll always haunt me
I want to know I belong to you
Say you’ll haunt me

Together, together we’ll be together, together forever

Little variations on my page
Little doors open on my cage
Little time has come and gone so far
Little by little who you are

I can see the patterns on your face
I can see the miracles I trace
Symmetry in shadows I can’t hide
I just want to be right by your side

I will give you everything to

Say you want to stay you want me too
Say you’ll never die, you’ll always haunt me
I want to know I belong to you
Say you’ll haunt me

Say you want to stay you want me too
Say you’ll never die, you’ll always haunt me
I want to know I belong to you
Say you’ll haunt me

Together, together we’ll be together, together forever
I belong to you
Together, together we’ll be together, together forever
I belong to you

Little supernovas in my head
Little soft pulses in my dead
Little souvenirs and secrets shared
Little off guard and unprepared

I will give you anything to
I will give you everything to

Say you want to stay you want me too
Say you’ll never die you’ll always haunt me
I want to know I belong to you
Say you’ll haunt me

Say you want to stay you want me too
Say you’ll never die you’ll always haunt me
I want to know I belong to you
Say you’ll haunt me

Together, together we’ll be together, together forever
I belong to you
Together, together we’ll be together, together forever
I belong to you

All along it was a fever
A cold sweat hot-headed believer
I threw my hands in the air, said, “Show me something”
She said, “If you dare, come a little closer”

Round and around and around and around we go
Oh now, tell me now, tell me now, tell me now you know

Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way
I want you to stay

It’s not much of a life you’re living
It’s not just something you take it’s given

Round and around and around and around we go
Oh now, tell me now, tell me now, tell me now you know

Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way
I want you to stay

Ooh, ooh, ooh, the reason I hold on

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ’cause I need this hole gone

Funny you’re the broken one but I’m the only one who needed saving

‘Cause when you never see the light it’s hard to know which one of us is caving

Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way

I want you to stay, stay
I want you to stay, hooh

  1. oooh Cool! Haven’t heard it before, but Yes! Love how they did the video with the ghostly images. Had to listen first because it sounds so good, then again to read along with the lyrics. Ghosts and hauntings are always a plus! 🙂

  2. Wow… I don’t even know where to start. Haha… this one might be a long comment, so I apologize in advance.

    Stone Sour: I saw Slipknot live in concert. Perhaps the lead singer was no longer Corey Taylor? Anyway, I thought Slipknot was a bit crazy and weird but I got caught up in the crowd’s obvious love of them. However, I’m in love with Corey Taylor’s voice from this song and added this to my playlist, so thanks!

    I also posted Stay by Rhianna and haven’t heard the cover version of the song before, but I am in love with this video. You for sure out-did my post today! Thanks so much for turning me on to this!! 🙂

    • Thanks, Helen! Sorry it took me awhile to reply. Corey Taylor is the lead singer for both Slipknot and Stone Sour, so yes, it was mostly likely him you saw in concert – he might be an over achiever LOL

      I love this fake mash-up with Rihanna and 30 Seconds, whoever made the video should be given an award and some props by both artists! Glad you liked it! 🙂
