Why Would You Stay
by Kem

Album: Intimacy: Album III (2010)
  • There's a light shining on you.
    And baby I'm trembling inside.
    Loved a woman that I barely knew,
    I must've been outta mind.

    Oh I
    I'll never hurt you again
    Girl I
    I know you deserve a better man
    Hey I
    I was a fool to ever let you down
    So why would you stay?

    Woman I beg your forgiveness
    And I'll do whatever it takes
    And may the Lord be my witness
    Honey I never meant to treat you this way
    Sugar your heart has been broken
    But I could still see true love shine in your eyes
    When every word has been spoken
    Woman I'll love you for the rest of my life

    Oh I
    I'll never hurt you again
    Girl I
    I know you deserve a better man
    Hey I
    I was a fool to ever let you down
    So why would you stay?

    Ah baby
    Don't know why, why you would stay
    Baby
    Baby
    You're my baby
    Hey girl

    Yeah I
    I'll never hurt you again
    Girl I
    I know you deserve a better man
    Girl I,
    I was a fool to ever let you down
    But I want you to stay
    Girl I
    I'll never hurt you again
    Baby
    I know you deserve a better man
    Girl I
    Girl I
    I was a fool to ever let you down
    But I want you, to stay. Writer/s: KIM L. OWENS
