lyrics

And oh,
Could you have stayed
Do you think its selfish of me
To reach out with a hand
Long taken back
Could you have stayed

Could you have stayed
Oh father do you really just forgive me if I ask
Just like you promised I'm crying out
Just another hopeless and forgotten soul
With plenty of years before me I'm crying out

Could you have stayed
Oh mother, are you still there
And are the gates gold like you hoped for
I must confess,
I'm struggling to believe you're not just gone
And does it count if I pretend to believe for your sake

I volunteer oh father
Please forgive me for I know not what I do
Lately this is the only way
To bring myself to her and close to you

And are the gates gold like you hoped for father
I confess, I can't forgive myself so why should you
So pin me to your cross, forgive them all
And maybe someday you'll forgive me too

And I would go so far as to tear into my heart and hope
The light would shine out brighter
Oh could you have stayed
Oh could you have stayed
