Julian LennonStick Around was the first single from the Secret Value of Daydreaming.

"Well, yeah...When I started right at the beginning I just had the line which comes into the beginning of the song (sings tune) and finally, after quite awhile I came up with the rest of the tune and I just couldn't think of a melody. I thought, 'What the hell do you write on top of (sings tune). It just wasn't working for me so I literally had to put it aside and I came back to it and sat down and sat down and sat down and me and Justin sat down and just listened to it over and over again. And he'd go, what about (sings tune) and we'd be doing that back and forth for ages and then all of a sudden, I said (sings "If you wanna")...oh, I like that, I like that, damn, I didn't tape it-what was it again? I can't lose it! But I forgot one bit and he reminded me so I finally got it together. It was...if I had forgotten.. if he hadn't been there, it would've been half a song at the moment."

The Video

Stick Around Video Captures

The video for 'Stick Around' tooks place in fast motion video in an upstairs flat. It started out with Julian having a fight with his girlfriend, Jami Gertz  (TV sitcom "Square Pegs", "Twister") and her leaving... Then a series of other girls movie in each rearranging the flat on Julian. Other "guests" of the flat include Michael J. Fox and Joe Piscopo.  At one point Michael J. Fox and Julian are sitting on the couch with 3 or 4 girls wearing bikinis...  Finally, after all the others leave his girlfriend comes back... The dog in the last frame shown is also in the "Want Your Body" video and I believe it's name is "Shy"

The Lyrics

If you want to tell me something new
I might stick around
If you want to say that I trust you
I might stick around

But if you disappear
Then nothing will be clear, ah
And if you go away
Then where am I to stay, ah
To stay, ah

If you say your love won't bring me down
I might stick around
If I kiss your lips just one more time
I could lose control

But if you disappear
Then nothing will be clear, ah
And if you go away
Then where am I to stay, ah
To stay, ah

If I breathe your scent just one more time
I could be controlled
If you tempt me with your final sin
I could be controlled

But if you disappear
Then nothing will be clear, ah
And if you go away
Then where am I to stay, ah
To stay, ah...(repeat and fade)
