Here to Stay

The tears roll down your beautiful face.
I could kiss them away, tell you how they taste
But you’d say no, then tell me you’re fine
But we both know, you’d be better off mine.

.Take my heart, keep it under lock and key
Hide it well, my dear, so no one can see
It’s yours for the taking, all you have to do is ask
I’d give it to you, no wanted favors or tasks

If I could
Kiss your tears away
Your smiles light the day
And cause me to say, me to say
“I love you,
Forever and always,
Even through your darkest days
I’m here to stay, here to stay”

I see the way the world’s causing you pain
Just another consequence of the earth’s cruelty and vain
You need a knight, perhaps one in shining armor
One who’ll stand beside and say “No one will harm her.”

If you be my Juliet, I will be your Romeo,
We can be the singers, singing every song we know
How about the dancers, fluid movements full of grace?
No matter what we become, you will make my heart race

If I could
Kiss your tears away
Your smiles light the day
And cause me to say, me to say
“I love you,
Forever and always,
Even through your darkest days
I’m here to stay, here to stay”

If I could
Kiss your tears away
Your smiles light the day
And cause me to say, me to say
“I love you,
Forever and always,
Even through your darkest days
I’m here to stay, here to stay”
Me in a black suit, you in a wedding gown
My heart drops from its place, its slipping way down
As you say “I do.”
Then you tell me “I love you”

If I could
Kiss your tears away
Your smiles light the day
And cause me to say, me to say
“I love you,
Forever and always,
Even through your darkest days
I’m here to stay, here to stay”
