Please Don’t Go.

Please Don’t Go.

On the eve of its tenth anniversary, Co. Cork singer and songwriter Stephanie Rainey brought her timeless anthem ‘Please Don’t Go’ to a whole new audience when she appeared on the TV series ‘America’s Got Talent’ on Tuesday June 25th, last, 2024.

The song she sung was dedicated to her one-year-old nephew, Fionn, who tragically lost his life to meningitis, when aged just one year old.

I dare our older readers not to shed a tear, as we think back, lovingly, on the hands we have held under similar circumstances in the past.

Please Don’t Go.

Lyrics and Vocals: Stephanie Marie Rainey.

I’ll hold your hand till it goes cold.
I’ll hold my tears until you go,
With all the life that leaves your bones,
It soaks the purpose from my own.
Ohhh, ohh, oh, please don’t go.
I love you more than you could know.
You’ve got a hole inside my soul.
It’s like a mountain soaked in snow.
It’s in the earth the river flows.
Ohhh, ohh, oh, please don’t go.
Ohhh, ohh, oh, please don’t go.
I’ve kept my own side of the bed,
Thinking you’d be home again.
I hold myself so I can sleep,
My pillow holds the screams of me.
Ohhh, ohh, oh, please don’t go.
Ohhh, ohh, oh, please don’t go.
So lay yourself down on my chest,
‘Cause I know how to hold you best.
I’ll keep you through these last few breaths,
And kiss and love you till the end.
Ohhh, ohh, oh, please don’t go.
Ohhh, ohh, oh, please don’t go.
END
