This song is from his album IN THE LONELY HOUR(2014). The track features a combination of gospel, balled and an Adele-like flow. The British singer-songwriter performed “Stay With Me” during his ‘Saturday Night Live’ debut in March 2014. The third single of “In the Lonely Hour” was released on May 18th in the UK.
I fell in love with Sam Smith’s vocal ever since I heard the song Nirvana. I think it’s the dynamics that he uses in his songs that are so captivating. I love the way the piano and the kick drum goes. Even though they are used very simply, it adds a nice effect to the song. The harmonies that come in the chorus are awesome. What do you think about this song and it’s transcription? Comment below.

INTRO Am F C x2
Am                      F
Guess it's true I'm not good
         C
At a one night stand
Am                F
But I still need love
        C
Cos I'm just a man
Am                 F              C
These nights never seem to go to plan
Am                   G
I don't want you to leave
                   C
Will you hold my hand

[CHORUS]
          Am
Oh won't you
    F     C
Stay with me
         Am
Cos you're
  F      C
All I need
       Am
This ain't love
      F          C
It's clear to see
    E
But darling
Am     F C
Stay with me

Am    F       C
Why am I so emotional?
Am             F
No it's not a good look
           C
Gain some self control
Am           F              C
Deep down I know this never works
Am                    G
But you can lay with me
              C
So it doesn't hurt

[CHORUS x2]
          Am
Oh won't you
    F     C
Stay with me
         Am
Cos you're
  F      C
All I need
       Am
This ain't love
      F          C
It's clear to see
    E
But darling
Am     F C
Stay with me
