If You Want Me To Stay Lyrics | Sly and the Family Stone | Fresh (1973)

If you want me to stay
I’ll be around today
To be available for you to see

But I am about to go
And then you’ll know
For me to stay here I got to be me

You’ll never be in doubt
That’s what it’s all about
You can’t take me for granted and smile

Count the days I’m gone
Forget reachin’ me by phone
Because I promise I’ll be gone for a while

And when you see me again
I hope that you have been
The kind of person….that you really are now

Got to get in straight
How could I ever be late
When you’re my woman taking up my time

Whoa, oh how could I ever allow
I guess I wonder how
I could get out a pocket for fun (HOW HOW)

When you know that you’re never number two
Number one’s gonna be number one
Ohh oww oohh

I’ll be good
I wish I could
I get this message over to you now

[Outro]
And when you see me again
I hope that you have been
The kind of person….that you really are now

I’ll be so good
I wish I could
I get this message over to you now

Stone recorded the song without much input from the rest of the band; by the early 1970s, he had begun crafting most of his material by himself. An alternate version of “If You Want Me to Stay”, as well as most of the rest of the Fresh album, was completed before Stone decided to scrap the masters and re-record the album.

The lyrics of the song feature frontman Sly Stone informing his lover that she has to let him be himself, otherwise he feels that he would have to leave. The composition has its origins in an apology Stone wrote to his future wife, Kathleen Silva, after a fight.
