Why do you have to go?

Faith Hill, he and I.
She sings 'I can feel you breathe.....’
I listen to his heart beating another name.
He says, “She never sounded this good before”
“It’s me, you fool”, I tease.
He gets up from the bed slowly.
Stay, pleeeease”, I cry.
“This is all we can ever have”, he says softly.
