Stay With Me
By: Eve Estelle

I don't want you to be a memory,
I don't want you to fade away;
I want you to be here with me,
Please, can't you come and stay?
I just want life to be the way it was,
Like it was before all of this..

I want to hear your voice,
Hear you sing;
I want to hear you laugh,
To hear that tune play when you ring.

I want to see your face,
See you smile;
I want to travel someplace,
Just to be with you for a while.

Hold your hand, hear you joke
You'd teach me things as you lightly poke,
Playing cards and Mario Kart,
You sure did have a golden heart.

I don't want you to be a memory,
I don't want you to fade away;
I'll never forget the things you've done for me,
I just wish you were here to stay.
