3. I Can Only Stay © 2010 Lorrie Newman Keating (BMI)
Temporary duty in West Berlin, two months, summer of '80. A sweet guy named Denny swept me off my feet in spite of the fact I kept reminding him I could 'only stay a little while longer'. Between Denny, lots of girl-time with my best friend Cathy (Cat), and nights spent playing at the Home Bar, it was one of the happiest two months of my life...

Lyrics

So you think you want to see me hang around here for awhile.
I don’t think you know what you’re getting into.
And you say that nothing else can matter as long as
we can stay together.
What am I going to do about you?

I can only stay a little while longer - more than
likely it’s the last of me you’ll see.
Still you smile every day, and tell me you will find
a way to prove that you’re the only one for me.

You seemed so shy and quiet when we first were
introduced.
I thought it was unusual, and I wondered.
But soon I found I was mistaken - a few short days –
my heart was taken,
and I’m so glad it hasn’t been returned.

I can only stay a little while longer - more than
likely it’s the last of me you’ll see.
Still you smile every day, and tell me you will find
a way to prove that you’re the only one for me.

Still, you know........you must understand.....
You’ve got a special place within my heart
But the last thing that I want to see is you get hurt
because of me
so please remember, Honey, that I told you from
the start…

I can only stay a little while longer - more than
likely it’s the last of me you’ll see.
Still you smile every day, and tell me you will find
a way to prove that you’re the only one for me.

I can only stay a little while longer...
I can only stay a little while longer...
I can only stay ...
