Stay or Leave by Dave Matthews Band

Maybe different, but remember
Winters warm there you and I,
Kissing whiskey by the fire
With the snow outside
And when the summer comes
The river swims at midnight
Shiver cold
Touch the bottom, you and I,
with muddy toes

Stay or leave
I want you not to go
But you should
IT WAS GOOD AS GOOD GOES
Stay or leave
I want you not to go
But you did

Wake up naked drinking coffee,
Making plans to change the world
While the world is changing us...
It was good good love.
You used to laugh under the covers
Maybe not so often now
But the way I used to laugh with you
Was loud and hard

Stay or leave
I want you not to go
But you should
It was good as good goes
Stay or leave
I want you not to go
But you did

So what to do
With the rest of today's afternoons, hey
Isn't it strange how we change
Everything we did

DID I DO ALL THAT I SHOULD
THAT I COULD'A DONE?

Remember we used to dance
And everyone wanted to be
You and me
I want to be too
What day is this
Besides the day you left me?
What day is this
Besides the day you went?

So what to do
With the rest of the day's afternoons, hey
Well isn't it strange how we change
Everything we did
DID I DO ALL THAT I COULD?

Remember we used to dance
And everyone wanted to be you and me
I want to be too
What day is this?
Besides the day you left me
What day is this?






You see, no matter how 'over' someone you are, Christmas has that ability to make you miss everyone more, even those that are enjoying the season with new people in their lives. Maybe it's the cold, maybe it's the Christmas commercials, or maybe it's the thousands of miles distance. Whatever it is, it's a time to look back on what was Christmas Day last year, and what IS Christmas Day this year.

Still wishing you your fairy tale ending,

I love and of course miss you so much Bud. I wish that we were able to be there with you to have a White Christmas and to have an accasional Italian supper together as a family of 4. I miss you being here and us being a family of 4. I think of you every second of every day and that's NO LIE!
Ok, I'm making it sound like you've died or something .... But you haven't thank goodness. - Randee
