Lyrics

Don't Leave Me
Antonio Jacobs
When I was 4 a stranger came to my door, told me I'm his son
Said he wanted to start what had never been begun
We laughed and played for little while, maybe half a day
Then he patted me on the head and he went away

Papa don't leave me papa, Papa don't leave
Who's gonna raise me now teach me how to be
Papa don't leave me papa, Papa don't leave me
I can be good if you just stay
Don't leave

When I was 12 my Mama took me for a ride to see my family
Said she wanted me to meet my cousins and everybody
We laughed and played for a little while and I got ready to go
But my Mom's had left without me and I didn't know

Mama don't leave me mama, Mama don't leave
Who's gonna raise me now teach me how to be
Mama don't leave me mama, Mama don't leave me
I can be good if you just stay
Don't leave

Facing rejection's never been easy
I can't handle that it's happened so many times
Haven't learned to put the past behind me
Nobody ever told me why

When I was l 6 I came home to find my grandmother's time had come
It had happened so suddenly no one was prepared
I cried and cried and I realized what had happened that day
Another one had gone and left me all alone

Nana don't leave me nana, Nana don't leave
Who's gonna raise me now teach me how to be
Nana don't leave me nana, Nana don't leave me
I can be good if you just stay
Don't leave
