Please don't leave me...please don't go
Before you do -- there's something you should know
I've never given you the credit you've been due
What I am experiencing now is all rather new
Is something that I didn't know could ever be real
My heart always skips a beat
For how do I know when we will again meet?
Forgive me for taking so long to realize,
for refusing to admit that others were so wise
For they knew that if I would just give you a chance
You would show me what it feels like to dance
On beaches with a soft, sandy shore
It would make me want to come back for more
But you didn't say anything; you didn't pressure me
You just waited and waited for me to finally see
What I had been missing all of these years
You taught me that things are not always as they appear
For now I know that I really do love you
My eyes are open to a whole new view
I wish I hadn't wasted so much time
'Cause to live without you is a crime
What can I do to make you stay?
I really don't want you to go away
Look at my face, see my big smile
I haven't felt this way in quite awhile
And this is all because of you, you know
So summer -- please don't go!
Oh summer -- please don't go!!
