After Rihanna debuted an emotional new song, “Stay,” on Saturday Night Live earlier this month (you can watch the video here), fans began to wonder if the slow jam was going to be Rih’s “Diamonds” successor. Well, Capital FM confirmed today that the track will in fact be the second single from her chart-topping album, Unapologetic.

While “Diamonds” is pretty upbeat and positive, “Stay” is a haunting love song that brings ultimate goosebumps. Check out the lyrics:

All along it was a fever
A cold with high-headed believers
I threw my hands in the air I said show me something
He said, if you dare come a little closer

Round and around and around and around we go
Ohhh now tell me now tell me now tell me now you know

Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way
I want you to stay

It’s not much of a life you’re living
It’s not just something you take, it’s given
Round and around and around and around we go
Ohhh now tell me now tell me now tell me now you know

Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way
I want you to stay

Ohhh the reason I hold on
Ohhh cause I need this hole gone
Funny all the broken ones but i’m the only one who needed saving
Cause when you never see the lights it’s hard to know which one of us is caving

Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way
I want you to stay, stay
I want you to stay, ohhh
