Why do you have to leave
Please stay

Forgive me if I think
That you're making a bad decision
Forgive me if I try
Please don't go away
Don't blame me if I want
The two of us to stay together
So let me tell you why

If only tonight
If this is all I got
If I can't have your love
I won't get back up this time
If only tonight
I'll race you to the sun
Before the morning comes
If I can't change your mind
It's only tonight

And tomorrow you're gone
And we're just a song
I'm singing alone

And tomorrow you're gone
And we're just a song
I'm singing alone

Don't tell me all this time
That you weren't mine
And I meant nothing
Why would you end this dream
Don't wanna wake up just yet
Don't ask me just to forget
Don't rip the heart out of me

If only tonight
If this is all I got
If I can't have your love
I won't get back up this time
If only tonight
I'll race you to the sun
Before the morning comes
If I can't change your mind
It's only tonight

And tomorrow you're gone
And we're just a song
I'm singing alone

And tomorrow you're gone
And we're just a song
I'm singing alone

I need you, I need you in my life
Nobody, nobody loves me like you
If there was something I could do
To stop you from leaving, coz we're not through

If only tonight
If this is all I got
If I can't have your love
I won't get back up this time
If only tonight
I'll race you to the sun
Before the morning comes
If I can't change your mind
It's only tonight

    This song fits in so well with the JLS split. It makes me cry when I listen to it now. I have loved JLS since 2008 when I was an eight year old girl. I saw them on the X Factor and fell instantly in love. I will never forget those memories of seeing JLS on the TV and singing my heart out with them. JLS gave me the best memories I could ever have wished for and I will forever be grateful to them. For shaping my childhood to be the best it could have possibly been. Thank you boys xx I will love you forever and a day.
