I see the pain in your heart from the smile that isn’t there. We should talk about it. And there’s a look in your eyes that reveals you don’t think I care. Can’t we talk about it? No one wins if I let you believe everything is wrong, when you’re not strong. Don’t want to think just how bad this could go if I wait too long, you might be gone.
Don’t leave us now, this isn’t a time to surrender. Don’t leave us now, you couldn’t come back from forever. Don’t want you to go so you’ve got to know that I love you. Don’t leave us now ‘cause one day it’s gonna be better.
I wouldn’t pretend that I know what you’re going through. No one said it’s easy. Won’t insult you by telling you that you’re just feeling blue. I don’t think it’s easy. It didn’t take only one day to make what you feel inside, need to heal inside. With some help and a whole lot of love you can change your mind, but it takes some time.
Don’t leave us now, this isn’t the time to surrender. Don’t leave us now, I tell ya it’s gonna get better. How many ways do I have to say That I love you? Don’t leave us now, You couldn’t come back from forever.
I know you’re too hurt and too tired to care what you’d leave behind. Stop and think it over. But this mountain you’re stuck on is something we have to climb. Stop and think it over! Won’t you reach out to me ‘cause you don’t have to own this all, or take that fall. The light you’ve shined will reflect back on you to let love appear and you’ll be glad you’re here.
Don’t leave us now, This isn’t a time to surrender. Don’t leave us now, You couldn’t come back from forever. It’s making me cry at the thought of goodbye ‘Cause I love you. Don’t leave us now, I promise it’s gonna get better.
