about

I wrote the track going into my senior year of high school. This song comes from a personal experience, making it so much more meaningful to me.

lyrics

Take me in your arms
Hold me close, don’t let go
I’m in need of this
I’ve got to feel your heart beat
You’re all I know, this hope I’ve found in you
Let’s put our guns away,
Shut up and be still

Let love work in us
Let love take us back to who we were
The things we’ve done, the words we’ve said
We gotta find a better way than this
Oh, just stay
Stay

Take a breath and leap
Hold onto the gravity you’ve found in me
And through this tragedy
We’ll learn to find some peace
You’re all I know, everything I need
Let’s stop making mistakes
Shut up, just stay

Let love work in us
Let love take us back to who we were
The things we’ve done, the words we’ve said
We gotta find a better way than this, oh

Take it away, can’t we press rewind
Make it so it’s only you and I
My heart breaks, and all it takes is you
To heal me, just stay

Take a breath and leap
Hold onto the gravity you’ve found in me
Take me in your arms,
Hold on to this

Give me all of you, I’m breaking at the seams
Don’t you dare walk away
Give me all of you, we cannot love this way
I love you more than words can ever say
That you’ll stay
Give me all of you, I’m breaking at the seams
Don’t you dare walk away
Stay
