. : Please Could You Just Stay : .

*

It's slipping through my fingers yet again.

I'm sorry I could not save you my friend.

Leave it in the past, just let it lie.

I'm ripping up my soul with endless whys.

*

I never had the right words,

to bring you back to me.

I was never strong enough

to brake your demons free.

I'm sorry for every mistake

that made you turn away.

Please don't let go of me.

Please could you just stay.

*

Life's an empty place when you are gone.

I've tried to say goodbye but it feels wrong.

I cry when I remember your sweet smile,

and though it hurts I'll hold it for a while.

*

I'll never find the right words

to tell you how I feel.

If I said sorry 1,000 times

would the pain be less real.

I can't sing this to your grave

cause your so far away.

Please could you let go of me.

Please could you just stay.

*

I fell in love, I learned to live again.

But I will not forget the past my friend.

And even when they turn their words at me,

your face is the only thing I see.

*

I may never have the right words

to change your suicide.

But I can tell your story Beth

and I'll fight it with pride.

I'm sorry if I tell it wrong,

and make them turn away.

Please don't let go of me.

Please could you just stay..

*

My love to you Beth.

I miss you.

*
