I Just Wish You'd Stay

Here we are, the day before Thanksgiving. We all have loved ones that are on our minds during the holidays, and I get to thinking about my father right about this time every year. All those memories -- the happy times and the not-so-happy times -- all seem to come flooding back. Does this happen to you, friends? xoxo
This time of year, I always think of you
During those cold days when the sun melts into the sky
And I wonder if you think of me too
And if you're happy where you are

It's like I had another life back then
Playing hopscotch down the block, trying to catch that rainbow
Knowing your hand was always mine to hold
When I love yous meant forever and goodbyes were just promises that you'd be back someday
And I could hate you for leaving
But, really, I just wish you'd stay

You always said "Don't look back"
That regrets are a waste of time
You could spend all your days chasing the sun until one day you wake up
And life has passed you by

It's like I had another life back then
Playing hopscotch down the block, trying to catch that rainbow
Knowing your hand was always mine to hold
When I love yous meant forever and goodbyes were just promises that you'd be back someday
And I could hate you for leaving
But, really, I just wish you'd stay

Stay, just stay, for a little while longer
Let's talk about all those good times once more
It's nice feeling this way
It's nice hoping you'll stay
 
It's like I had another life back then
Playing hopscotch down the block, trying to catch that rainbow
Knowing your hand was always mine to hold
When I love yous meant forever and goodbyes were just promises that you'd be back someday
And I could hate you for leaving
But, really, I just wish you'd stay
 
It's like I had another life back then
Playing hopscotch down the block, trying to catch that rainbow
Knowing your hand was always mine to hold
When I love yous meant forever and goodbyes were just promises that you'd be back someday
And I could hate you for leaving
But, really, I just wish you'd stay
