けきれぬ
を けば るばかり
をくどくどとぐなら いて
だからのうちかずにおく
いつづけていればりにわる

まれ
しすぎたかもしれない
うなら
まれおしすぎたかもしれない
えばがぶりつきうだけ

ならそこでは も げられる
わる ぎたしがりながら
をほどこした
びそのきをして

だからおとこうしてのしじまにたわれば
いているみたいだ
とこうしてのしじまにたわれば
かいところもりつくするよう

だからのうちかずにおく
いつづけていればりにわる

まれ
しすぎたかもしれない
うなら
まれおしすぎたかもしれない
えばがぶりつきうだけ

The title of the song as one might imagine comes from a a quote in Goethe's Faust story a greater part of the quote being "Verweile doch! Du bist so schön!" ("Stay! You are so beautiful!") during a statement made with his deal with the devil

Deciding not to go into too much detail though "Verweile doch!" can and has been phrased in a number of different ways depending on who the translator common translations include "Stay!", "Linger on!", and "Stay a while!" and while "stay!" would be the most general translation I decided to use "linger on!" for the sake of trying to sound slightly more poetic given the entire context
