Stay

Stay by Valeri Lopez

I met her last weekend at the young adults fall retreat, and let me tell you, she is amazing. She is such a sweetheart, and has such a huge heart. Oh yeah, her music is great too!

Here is a video of her playing my favorite song Stay.



I look at this song in two different ways. First, I think it's a great song to represent God's relationship with us. It reminds me that God will always love me, regardless of choices I make. If I fall, God will catch me. He will always remain. I think it's such a great reminder.

I also think its a great song to represent marriage. Maybe I have high hopes, but I hope that I would be able to say these things to my husband, and he could do the same to me. I pray that God will bless me with an amazing man of God that will truly protect me, care for me, and love me unconditionally.

Here are the lyrics:

Here is my heart
Keep it safe, it's the only one I got
Here is my life
In your hands do I place
Just hold on tight

And this life can be cruel
But I'll try
And I think we can make it
If we try

If I fall will you catch me and say
You will always remain
If I do something strange
Will you stay

Will you stay

Now is the time
Are you sure or afraid
Do you feel fine
I feel so safe
When I look in your eyes
and I hear you say

That this life will be cruel
But we will try
I believe we can make it
If we try

If you fall I will catch you and say
I will always remain
If you do something strange
I will stay

I will stay

If you fall I will catch you and say
I will always remain
If you do something strange
I will stay

I will love you forever
I will stay
I will love you forever
I will stay
I will love you forever
I will stay
I will love you forever

I will stay

What do you think of the song?
