He sits in his cell
And he lays on his bed
Covers his head and closes his eyes.
He sees a smoking gun
And the coward he ran And in his arms is the bleeding love of his life
And she cried
Kiss it all better I'm not ready to go.
It's not your fault love you didn't know
You didn't know.

Her hands are so cold
And he kisses her face
And says everything will be alright.
He noticed the gun
And his rage grew inside.
He said I'll avenge my lover tonight.
And she cried
Kiss it all better I'm not ready to go.
It's not your fault love you didn't know.
You didn't know.

Now he sits behind prison bars
Twenty five to life and she's not in his arms.
He couldn't bring her back with a bullet to the heart of the back of a man who tore his world apart.

He holds only a memory.
All it is a memory
Hey, hey.

He cries stay with me until I fall asleep stay with me stay with me until I fall asleep stay with me.(x3)
Kiss it all better I'm not ready to go.
It's not your fault love you didn't know.
You didn't know.
Stay with me until I fall asleep stay with me. Stay with me until I fall asleep. (x4)
Stay with me.

    A man killed the love of his life, and when he killed the man who killed her, he got put away in jail. And now his world is torn apart.
