Would He Stay or Would He Leave?

Have you ever been in love but have been scared to tell him the truth?
Have you ever wondered if he’d laugh at your innocence and youth?
If you told him that you love him, would he stay or would he leave?
Are you supposed to sit there, crying, feeling your heart heave?

Now he’s leaving forever and you’ll never see him again
You wonder; would he have stayed if you’d told him way-back-when?
You met him and you fell for him, you love him with all your heart
And now that it’s all ending you long for a re-start.

Have you ever been in love but have watched him slip away?
Have you ever sat there wondering how to tell him; what to say?
If you told him that you love him, would he stay or would he leave?
Are you supposed to sit there crying, feeling your heart heave?

He puts one foot on that plane and tells you a sweet “goodbye”
Then and there, looking in his eyes, you feel like you could die.
He disappears behind the doors, and is no longer in your sight
You try not to run after him; it takes all of your might.

I was once in love and I let it pass me by
My heart was once whole, but now its shattered pieces fly
I wish that I had told him; maybe he wouldn’t have felt the need to leave
Now all I can do is sit here crying…feeling what’s left of my heart heave.
