Stay With Me One More Day
By © Jeff Shumate 2009
He lost his way, left her alone that day,
Then time built along the way,
Till’ she couldn’t remember why to stay,
He had some pain and didn’t know why,
When it was gone he still would cry,
On his knees he would pray,
Please dear God take the pills away,
She hoped to God he’d quit one day,
But now she knew she couldn’t stay,
And then God showed them His own way,
Honey they want to send me in, I have a mass deep within,
I don’t know how I don’t know why; just know I love you if I die.
Don’t tell the kids I didn’t try,
So she held his hand and said goodbye,
The time went by for far to long,
She feared by now he was gone,
Oh dear Lord, what will I say, girls your daddy is gone today,
And what about the one still on the way?
The doctor came in and said with a sigh,
We got it all; you’ll have your guy,
She heard his voice and heard him say,
I love you darlin’, will you stay,
I know it’s time to put the pills away.
I don’t know how I don’t know why,
But I had a surgeon in the sky,
Please don’t leave for I have changed,
My new love for you always will remain,
A gracious God put it there to stay,
Don’t say nothing now, just stay today,
Because you have a man whose changed his way,
I know you really want to go,
Just don’t leave now, before the show,
God will heal us in His own way,
Let’s keep our marriage one more day,
My love for you is here to stay,
Please stay with me one more day.
My love for you is here to stay.
