Shut up, Just Stay

Take me in your arms,
Hold me close. Don’t let go.
I’m in need of this,
I’ve got to hear your heart beat.
It’s what I know, this home I’ve found in you.
Let’s put our guns away, shut up, and be still.

Let love work in us.
Let love take us back to who we were.
The things we’ve done, the words we’ve said,
We’ve gotta find a better way than this…Just stay.

Take a breath and leap.
Hold onto the gravity you’ve found in me.
And through this tragedy, we’ll learn to find some peace.
You’re all I know, everything I need.
Let’s stop making mistakes, shut up, just stay.

Let love work in us.
Let love take us back to who we were.
The things we’ve done, the words we’ve said,
We’ve gotta find a better way than this…

Take it away, can’t we press rewind?
Make it so it’s only you and I…
My heart breaks, and all it takes is you
To heal me… Just stay.

Take a breath and leap,
Hold onto the gravity you’ve found in me.
Take me in your arms,
Hold onto this…

Give me all of you I’m breaking at the seams…
Don’t you dare walk away.
Give me all of you, we cannot love this way…
I love you more than words can ever…

Say that you’ll stay.

Give me all of you, I’m breaking at the seams.
Don’t you dare walk away.
Just stay.
