Stay with me for one more night

The last thing I want is to see you cry

Everything's wrong, but we'll be just fine

And I will not sleep tonight

I'll hold you close, whisper goodbye

Wipe away tears from your fragile eyes

Silently praying and asking why

You cannot sleep tonight

Trust in me and take my hand

I know this isn't what we had planned

But close your eyes and we'll find a way

Tomorrow promises better days

Precious time went by so fast

But girl, we made every moment last

Memories of a distant past

Will flood my mind tonight

You can't outrun the future

Tomorrow's come and gone

You can't escape the sunlight

From the breaking dawn

So let's enjoy this sunset

Before it gets too late

I promise I'll come back for you

If you say you'll wait for me
