Love Stays1 min 165 1 min 165
In your eyes, a surprise was waiting there.
A moment unforgettable.
And your smile, worthwhile,
Made me feel unbelievable.
Some say that college is the way
To find out how we will live our lives.
But not me, and not you,
In our love archives.
That day in the sun no one could take away
How two hearts become compatible.
Your hand, rough as sand, held mine so close
Like a friend dependable.
College classes with you, it was all I could do,
To keep my mind in the present too.
It was me, and it’s you,
With our love true.
A winter drive, so alive,
Laughter ringing out, unbreakable.
And then the car came from far,
It's trajectory unpredictable.
Life can change and rearrange,
And you might never see a moment coming to be.
If there’s no me, or no you,
What can love do?
It was cold when I was told,
The news that was unbearable.
And I tried not to cry all day in any way,
But the urge was irrepressible.
And the blame I felt fanned the flame inside,
Burning hot no matter what I tried.
It was me, without you,
And our love died.
Then my heart had a start as it did
Back when the days felt dispensable.
And you were near, right here with me,
It was a feeling so incredible.
And I could feel your hand so real taking mine,
Telling me that it would be okay.
‘Cause it’s me, and it’s you,
Since love stays.
