So would you stand by me?
‘Cause I’d stand by you.
Would you stay with me?
If I asked you to.
Would you care for me?
And I for you,
‘Cause after all,
We’re broken in two.

These days, they pass by
With no rhythm or pace.
I can’t keep time
Or try to save face.
I’m content to stay
In this moment of time,
Just trying to stay by your side.

But of course, I stumble
Of course, I fall.
There’s no way to stop
Or escape from it all.
So I get up,
And brush off the dirt,
Put on a smile
Keep walking like I’m not hurt.

(It’s not easy-
Nothing ever is
But I go on hoping
This isn’t another hit-and-miss.)

I’ve had so many before,
So many stories I’d never say
The past must stay behind
Since it’s a struggle to get through today.

But every time I start to slow down,
You go further and further away.
Though there’s great risk
(And a greater price to pay)
I’ll do anything to make you stay.
