about

I Can't Stay was recorded for and released on Clidesfeld's first full-length album Blind Lunar Novas in 2007. I've always loved this song for its subject. I recorded this dramatically abridged version in mourning the same night that the subject, my dog and long-time best friend Matrix, died after a fruitful and happy life. It's a weighty song for me now. RIP Matrix.

lyrics

The door, the barrier
The shape bending my time with you
I can’t stand to see your look as I go
I can’t stay, but I'll return for you
I can’t stand to see your look as I go
I can’t stay, but I'll return for you
I’ll never forget you
I’ll never forget you
I’ll never forget you, all others claim the same
I’ll never forget you, all others claim the same
I’ll never
I’ll never
I’ll never
I’ll never
