Jerry Allen: Jerry's Music

Here to Stay

(Jerry Allen)
March 7, 2009
Music, Lyrics, and arrangment by Jerry Allen
I actually wrote this melody for a religious song I wrote back in my early 20's. When cleaning out the attic of my old place in the midst of moving, I found the song which I had forgotten about. I revived the music and put new lyrics which are written for my partner, Gregorio, whose love really did save me. :) this is a happy, uplifting and fun song about true love. While the lyrics may be a little simple, they say everything that is important to me and that is all the matters.
Vs 1
I was wandering, lost, until you found me
Just a shell of the man that I used to be
You saw through my disguise and then you loved me
For who I was and now who I am. Your love saved me
Vs2
Do you know what I see when I look in your eyes?
How that every thought inside just fades away
How that all I can see in you're my future
There's nothing else I need to know and so I say...
Chorus
I promise you that I'm never gonna leave you
I'll be here to hold every day
And I want you to know how much I love you
And I'll be your destiny.
I'm here to stay
Vs3
Do you know what I feel, how I feel inside?
How I love you more with every breath I take
Do you know that I need you here to guide me
You give me strength and hope with every step I take
Repeat Chorus
