I'm so young and you're so old
This, my darling, I've been told
I don't care just what they say
'Cause forever I will pray
You and I will be as free
As the birds up in the trees
Oh, please stay by me, Diana

Thrills I get when you hold me close
Oh, my darling, you're the most
I love you but do you love me
Oh, Diana, can't you see
I love you with all my heart
And I hope we will never part
Oh, please stay with me, Diana

Oh, my darlin', oh, my lover
Tell me that there is no other
I love you with my heart
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Only you can take my heart
Only you can tear it apart
When you hold me in your loving arms
I can feel you giving all your charms
Hold me, darling, ho-ho hold me tight
Squeeze me baby with-a all your might

Oh, please stay by me, Diana
Oh, please, Diana
Oh, please, Diana
Oh, please, Diana

    @keithreardon -- don't you mean 'days later'?
    Paul, 16, and diana, 18, were discussing 'don't gamble with love'. Quoting diana's cbc radio interview: "[i asked him] 'why didn't you write a song for me? ' so about a week later we were over at his place, and he played this song. "

    He had a crush on his childhood babysitter, Diana.

    This was his love song for her as he still remembered her years later.
