. : 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.
