Lyrics

You Stayed 2001 by Steve Mason

-Verse 1-
Did I see you in the stairwell?
Through smoke-filled air?
Singing songs to comfort
My friend was that you there?

And outside on the sidewalk
?neath falling skies
Every brother?s father (Mike)
Giving final rites

-Bridge-
Leading lost souls? to the light, into the clearing
Out of the dark? you hurried them away? but you stayed

-Verse 2-
No words could ever tell you?
Or show how much we care?
For your love and sacrifice
For the people on the stairs

-Bridge-
The people up there? A part of you and me?
Up on the stairs? So many angels set them free.

-Verse 3-
Now I just have to thank you
Though I know not names
I?m still hearing songs in stairwells
From the heroes of that day

-Bridge-
Leading lost souls? to the light, into the clearing
Out of the dark? you hurried them away? but you stayed

-Verse 1-
Did I see you in the stairwell?
Through smoke-filled air?
