Reason To Stay Remember when I met you How you tried to get through I was on the run Then your love found me So, if you have to go now I know I’ll find you somehow If you need to know Where your heart should be Go and see Fly away and find your answer You have my heart forever after But, I won’t place it in your way So, go find your reason to stay I know I need the same thing To find what I am seeking The desires of my heart And if we’re meant to be So, I’ll find the strength to let go And pray you find your way home And, if you find your reason inside of me You’ll know where I’ll be Fly away and find your answer You have my heart forever after But, I won’t place it in your way So, go find your reason You’ll stay in my heart Just the way that you are You’ve shown me what’s real You’re precious to me Fly away and find your answer You have my heart forever after But, I won’t place it in your way So, go find your reason Fly away, find your answer You have my heart forever after But, I won’t place it in your way So, go find your reason I hope I’m your reason to stay ©lauramariemusic 2014

about

A month or so ago, I was hired to write a song. Angela emailed me and said that her boyfriend Chris was leaving and, as much as she loved him and as much as it hurt to let him go, she knew she couldn't stand in the way of him realizing his dream. She said she wanted to gift him a song because music was so important to him. As I listened to her tell me the story of how they met, the circumstances that would keep them apart and, really, just why she loved him, I found myself in tears. It was clear that she wanted him to find his happiness above all else; even her feelings. I'm finding it a difficult thing to explain but, what I felt from her was so pure and so selfless. I can't speak for her but it said to me, "I love who you are and taking your freedom to find what you want would change who you are. I won't do that.". It was a beautiful and heart-wrenching thing to write about. I cried several times in the process. Every word of the song is taken from something personal she shared with me. Special thanks to Mack Damon for affording me some time in the studio to record a quick version of it to share with you. It was my privilege to write it and I hope Angela and Chris are both very blessed wherever life takes them.

"If you love a flower, don’t pick it up.
Because if you pick it up it dies
and it ceases to be what you love.
So if you love a flower, let it be.
Love is not about possession.
Love is about appreciation." - Osho

Now the reason we're here
Every man, every woman
Is to help each other
Stand by each other
When love walks in the room
Everybody stand up
Oh it's good, good good
Say I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you - The Pretenders

At some point in my life, I heard this song and decided (before I knew I decided) that my life purpose was to send a "message of love". Be <3
