Stay The Time

 

(1) Hiding way up high in the tree house

 

Playing spies with Barbie Lynn

 

Gone so long my Momma calls

 

Saying, "Child where have you been?"

 

Childhood play under leaves of green

 

Oh, the happy times we weave

 

Please let me stay up here and play

 

In the land of make believe

 

Chorus:

 

Stay the time, Lord, Stay the time

 

Make the hours slow on down

 

Hold this moment, make it mine

 

Stay the time, Lord, Stay the time

 

Let the rest of the world just go on by

 

And let me hold on to this time

 

 

 

(2) Underneath the starry sky

 

Blanket on the ground

 

Basking in the moonlight

 

With the sweetest love I've found

 

Make this moment last, Lord

 

Don't let it slip away

 

To a time I can't hold on to

 

In a place called yesterday

 

Chorus:

 

(3) Rocking in my rocking chair

 

By the flickering firelight

 

Singing soft a lullaby

 

In the middle of the night

 

Holding part of you and me

 

I whisper donít grow up too fast

 

Let me hug you gently to my heart

 

Lord, make this moment last

 

Chorus:

 

(4) Now I hear them telling me

 

That something's very wrong

 

I just heard those fateful words

 

"You won't be here very long"

 

There's so much I long to do

 

And words I need to say

 

Oh Lord, please hear my humble prayer

 

And let me hold on to today

Chorus:
