Episode: We Are Shining
Stay is a song originally by Shakespears Sister, sung by Spencer Carlisle and Beth Everly in the fifth episode to the first season of Glee: Paint the Sky, We Are Shining.

The song is performed at the beginning of the episode, as part of 'dramatic' performances they had been assigned to do in preparation for Invitationals. The performance in the music room, with Walker playing a young soldier dying from wounds he sustained in battle while Beth is a carer tending to his needs whilst singing the song to him. Midway through the performance, Spencer appears as 'Death', while appearing to relish the part, she secretely resents it, wondering why being a 'bitch' means shes the person to play the character and bringing thoughts of her mother's possible death to her mind.

As the performance draws to a close, Spencer adminsters the 'kiss of death' to Walker to symbolise him succumbing to his wounds as Beth devastatingly sings the last notes. However, he awakens and embraces her as Spencer crawls into the shadows, bringing the message that 'love had overpowered evil'.

LyricsEdit

Beth:
If this world is wearing thin
And you're thinking of escape
I'll go anywhere with you
Just wrap me up in chains
But if you try to go alone, don't think I'll understand
Stay with me
Stay with me
In the silence of your room
In the darkness of your dreams
You must only think of me
There can be no in between
When your pride is on the floor
I'll make you beg for more
Stay with me
Stay with me.

Spencer:
You'd better hope and pray that you make it safe
Back to your own world
You'd better hope and pray that you'll wake one day
In your own world
'Cause when you sleep at night
They don't hear your cries
In your own world
Only time will tell if you can break the spell
Back in your own world.

Beth:
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay, stay with me
Stay, stay, stay, stay, stay
Stay with me.
