Hold me till I fall asleep
Please don’t leave just yet
One more day, one more night
To help me to forget.

Forget that you’ve found someone else
Someone to take my place
I can’t let go, please stay awhile
One more look upon your face.

Don’t turn away, don’t leave like this
Please, I can be better
I’ll do whatever it will take
To keep us both together.

So much time, so much at stake
Please, you have to try
She can’t be all you think she is
I begged, then started to cry.

Begging got me nowhere
Didn’t get us back on track
The heart knew what it wanted
There was no going back.
