lyrics

He left his world just to find it again
And she’d done the same from the opposite end
They met, fell in love, and lost contact before
A strange twist of fate had them together once more
She said “I'll meet you
Halfway between our worlds”
He said “Sounds good
I'll make you my girl”

He said “Stay so I won't be alone”

After months on the back of a bike in Nepal
It came time to decide if it was worth it all
They said yes, and she left to come with him back home
To his world where she knew nothing else
They tried to make it work
But circumstance insists
To be known to be seen
Could they save it with a kiss?
He said “Stay so I won't be alone”
And she said “Let's leave, I'm so far away from home”
He said please “Don't break my heart again”
She said “We are fighting battles we can't win”

Left alone in his world while he worked for their love
She had to leave go back home there were signs from above
So he put down his tools and he followed her there
They had fought tooth and nail for this life they'd share
New York looked like the answer for them both
But this town he once called home began to beckon him away

She said “Stay with me here ‘cause we've fought for this love and I won't be alone”
He said “Leave with me now this town will eat us alive and I'm so far away from home”
She said “Please take my hand I'll make it work for us here don't break my heart again”
He said “We just lost this battle that we can't win”

Stay so I won’t be alone
