  • Yes I do, I believe
    That one day I will be, where I was
    Right there, right next to you
    And it's hard, the days just seem so dark
    The moon, the stars, are nothing without you
    Your touch, your skin, where do I begin?
    No words can explain, the way I'm missing you
    Deny this emptiness, this hole that I'm inside
    These tears, they tell their own story

    You told me not to cry when you were gone
    But the feeling's overwhelming
    They're much too strong
    Can I lay by your side, next to you, you
    And make sure you're alright
    I'll take care of you
    And I don't want to be here
    If I can't be with you tonight

    I'm reaching out to you
    Can you hear my call?
    Woah, this hurt that I've been through
    I'm missing you, missing you like crazy

    You
    Can I lay by your side, next to you, to you
    And make sure you're alright
    I'll take care of you
    And I don't want to be here
    If I can't be with you tonight
    Oh, lay me down tonight
    Lay me by your side
    Woah, lay me down tonight
    Lay me by your side
    Can I lay by your side, next to you, you Writer/s: Elvin Duval Dalphinis Smith, James John Napier, Samuel Frederick Smith
