This is the song “Stay” by Lisa Loeb.  I love this song so much.  It strikes a chord with my soul although I don’t think I could have any experience described in the lyrics.  Perhaps it is the tune or her voice.  Or perhaps it is the movie “Reality Bite“.

It makes me think of Winona Ryder, Ethan Hawk, bad coffee, chain smoking, couch pizza and AIDS (but not much about Ben Stiller or the big mouth girl “Vickie” or the other room mate “Sammy” ~ I don’t even know their real name!). This movie is a 90’s classic. And so as the song.

I am glad that Lisa Loeb is still around (with the same old pair of glasses apparently) and doing well (before I searched for her, I thought she was a one-hit-wonder…)
