Hell on earth ain't hard to find
But you can save me from mine
Stop the time's bayonet
From stabbing all that's delicate

I won't be afraid of growing old
If I have you hand to hold
I'm looking for eternity
Will you find it with me

Please stay awhile
Show me how to smile
Please stay awhile

I am not a great man
But I'll give you all I can
I'll be the lashes on your eyes
Catch every tear that you cry

Please stay awhile
Show me how to smile
Please stay awhile

Let's fill this room with empty coffee cups so we don't ever have to go to sleep
Because if I close my eyes I fear tomorrow won't let this day repeat

My life's been filled with turned out lights and haunted by the hurt of closing doors
Let's turn the locks and lose the keys because I don't want them open anymore

I see you in an antique wedding gown and me slowly walking down the aisle
And won't you be the mother of my child so I can see you every time she smiles

So please stay awhile
Please stay awhile
