Will I Ask You To Stay

How long will it last
This sad circumstance
Before you decide
I’m not worth a glance?
It’s only a matter of time
Give it weeks, maybe days
Will I ask you to stay?

How long will you last
In this circumstance
Before you renege
And you understand?
Before you decide
I’ve committed a crime?
Weeks, months, or days?
Will I ask you to stay?

How long will we last
Before somebody’s past
Dictates our future
And muddies the path?
Before all this pain
(Oh, I’ll want you to stay)
Consumes me to tears
As I’m feeling this way?
