  • Sweetheart listen,
    I know the last few pages
    Haven't been good for the both of us
    And I've caused you a lot of grief
    But put those bags down, o.k.?
    Before you make a decision like that,
    Please just listen to me
    'Cos I don't want you to leave.
    I definately don't want you to leave
    Just hear me out.
    Honey, don't leave me now
    With my head on my shoulders wrong
    Have I done something wrong for you to leave?
    I know I've been careless, girl
    And I must apologize
    I'll try better next time, baby
    If you let me stay
    If you let me stay
    I'll say what I should've said
    If you let me stay
    I should have said that I love you
    It you let me stay
    And I should have said it from my heart
    If you let me stay
    How can I compensate
    For my indiscretions, dear
    Tell me it's not too late
    That I'd love to hear
    If you walk out on me
    You will see a grown man cry
    I didn't miss my water
    Till my well ran dry
    But if you let me stay
    If you let me stay
    I'll say what I should've said
    If you let me stay
    I should have said that I love you
    It you let me stay
    And I should have said it from my heart
    If you let me stay
    Your pretensions aim for gullible fools
    And now who needs you anyway?
    I'll get mine elsewhere
    I taught the school
    You will regret it someday
    If you let me stay
    I'll say what I should've said
    If you let me stay
    I should have said that I love you
    It you let me stay
    And I should have said it from my heart
    If you let me stay
