"Be Here Long" as written by and William Rinehart Nathaniel Rinehart....
Close my eyes and think of you
Go to sleep and dream of you
We don't get to be here long
I gave you the best of me
Loved you more than anything
But we don't get to be here long
We don't get to be here long

Though my heart may be in pieces
My eyes are still set on you
And though I can't keep it together
I know that you'd want me to

Oh, I'm swimming in the grief
And there's no anchor that could hold me down
I don't want any relief
'Cause I don't wanna let you go right now

Close my eyes and think of you
Go to sleep and dream of you
We don't get to be here long
I gave you the best of me
Loved you more than anything
But we don't get to be here long

Oh, your moments were a charity
They gave me more than I could lose
Yeah, I know you found the promise land
But I'm still here and I'm missing you

Close my eyes and think of you
Go to sleep and dream of you
We don't get to be here long
I gave you the best of me
Loved you more than anything
But we don't get to be here long

When the day comes
And the fire is out
I wanna know that
I gave you all, I gave you all I had
When the day comes
And the fire is out
I wanna know that
I gave you my everything

Close my eyes and think of you
Go to sleep and dream of you
We don't get to be here long
I gave you the best of me
Loved you more than anything
But we don't get to be here long
Oh, we don't get to be here long

We don't get to be here long
