Stay For Awhile

This song is by Amy Grant and appears on the compilation album The Collection (1986).

Long time since I've seen your smile
But when I close my eyes
I remember
You were no more than a child
But then so was I
Young and tender

Time carries on
I guess it always will
Deep inside my heart
Time stands still

Stay for awhile
Well, it's good to see your smile
And I love your company
Stay for awhile
And remember the days gone by
For a moment it can seem
Just the way it used to be

Snowfalls, phone calls, broken hearts
Clear summer days, warm and lazy, yeah

Long walks, long talks, after dark
We vowed we'd never forget
Now it's hazy

Time takes its toll
And time alters our view
It would be nice to
Spend some time with you

Oh, stay for awhile
Well, it's good to see your smile
And I love your company
Whoa, oh, stay for awhile
And remember the days gone by
For a moment it can seem
Just the way it used to be

Stay
(Please stay)
Stay, stay, stay

Won't you, won't you
Stay for awhile
Well, it's good to see your smile
And I love your company
Whoa, oh, stay for awhile
And remember the days gone by
Just the way it used to be

Stay for awhile
Oh, it's good to see your smile
And I love your company
Won't you stay with me for awhile
And remember the days gone by
For a moment it can seem
Just the way it used to be

The way it used to be
The way it used to be, ooh
Ooh, oh whoa
