ZergNet TwistedSifter I’ll Always Give You A Reason To Stay I’m not one to beg. I’m not going to sit on my knees, and tearfully look up at you with a wish written on my mouth. I’m not going to pathetically shout to you, if you decide to leave me. But, no matter what, if I love you, I’ll always give you a reason to stay. But if you love me, and if you want me just as much as I want you, I’m not going to let you down. I’ll show you that you can lean on me when you feel too weak to do it on your own. I’ll show you that you can count on me to always make you laugh. I’ll tell you that it’s ok to fall down sometimes because I’ll be there to help you stay steady. I’ll show you that you shouldn’t be afraid to cry in front of me. I’ll show you that I’m the girl you can have fun with. I won’t leave. I’ll show you, that sometimes, people don’t always leave. I’ll show you, that the world can be beautiful even when the sun sets. That people can be good.
