"Stay (Wasting Time)" is a song by the Dave Matthews Band, released as the second single off their album Before These Crowded Streets. As a single, it reached #8 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart, #33 on the Top 40 Mainstream, and #20 on the Adult 40. The song features The Lovely Ladies (Tawatha Agee, Cindy Myzell, and Brenda White King) on background vocals.
The song has been used as a set closer or as an encore frequently in their live performances. This song is one of the few which do not differ greatly from its studio version when performed live. The only major difference that occurs during live performances is that sometimes the ending of the song features improvisation.
The song was used by the Virginia Tourism Corporation for a 2005 television commercial. It was also featured in the 2007 film The Kingdom.
