Bryan and I wrote this song for "Pretty Woman: The Musical", the scene where Vivian is packing her things, ready to leave, and Edward begs her to stay. It was a long shot. The director hadn't asked us to write a song for this scene, but we thought it might work. The director disagreed. So Bryan recorded it himself.
Lyrics: We shared a special moment
I think you felt it too
I know you wanted more
But right now, this is the best that I can do

If I gave you too little, too late
How was I to know
Now I don’t want to give you up
No, I don’t want to let you go

So please stay
I just need a little time
And a little help to find
All the words to say

Please stay
Before you’re walking out the door
I know you want more
So give me one more day
Please stay

You were looking after you
And I was looking after me
Sometimes it’s hard to know the difference
Between what we want and what we need

I might not have said all the right things
But I know the way I feel
If you give me one more chance
Maybe we can make this real

Please stay
Don’t wanna hear you say goodbye
Cuz there’s a million reasons why
We shouldn’t let it end this way

Please stay
I don’t wanna see you go
I need to let you know
Some things are hard to say
Please stay
