"I Wish You'd Stay" as written by and Brad/dubois Paisley....
I talked to my sister in Memphis
And told her you were movin' to town
Here's her number
She said she'd be glad to show you around

I left a map on your front seat
Just in case you lose your way
But don't worry, once you reach Sallisaw
It's all Interstate

I know you need to go
But before you do I want you to know, that I

Wish you the best
And I wish you nothing less
Than every thing you've ever dreamed of
And I hope that you find love along the way
But most of all
I wish you'd stay

I figure right about sundown
You'll be in west Tennessee
And by then
Maybe I'll understand why you had to leave

I know that you've done some changin'
And I know there's no changin' your mind
And yes I know
We've been through this a thousand times

I'm sorry for still holdin' on
I'll try to let go and I'll try to be strong, and I'll

Wish you the best
And I wish you nothing less
Than every thing you've ever dreamed of
And I hope that you find love along the way
But most of all
I wish you'd stay

Yeah everything you've ever dreamed of
And I hope that you'll find love along the way
But most of all
I wish you'd stay
I wish you'd stay

    General CommentThis song brought me to tears.
    It's about setting someone free, because you love them and they have made a decision, that doesn't match your future.
    He is right, people change and other people hold on to them, but eventually they have to let go. You know, it's over and then you try to be friends and help them in their new life, even though it's a life with someone else by their side. You help them and you learn how to let go and that requires great power and a lot of love.
