'Stay' -- Sugarland (2007)

Wandering Words: "I've given you my best, why does she get the best of you?"

Inspired by Reba McEntire's 'Whoever's in New England,' Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles wrote this ballad from the viewpoint of the "other woman," who is in bed with her married lover, dreading the inevitable phone call beckoning him home. She eventually gets the courage to tell him she deserves more and that he should "stay" with his wife.
