Had I Stayed Near


If it were easy to forget you I’d have done it long ago
But it’s just something that I can’t do, for once I’ve lost control
Of the stupid petty things that silence never cleans
And the phone it never rings with your calls
So I sent a letter to the door you walked back in years before
But now I’m not so sure, you’d open, it all again for me

Hello will never be the same, and good -bye’s the one to blame
I meant every thing I said on the corner of your bed
I wonder what we could have been had I stayed near
The one, that got away

Too much time gone and I had to see you, 300 miles I’d travel for
Just to tell you that I loved you, I know you’ve heard it all before
But I was only seventeen, didn’t know you’d always be
The kind of heart I’d always search for
So then at 23 I shared my open heart with you
If I could go back there I’d show you, what you meant to me

Hello will never be the same, and good -bye’s the one to blame
I meant every thing I said on the corner of your bed
I wonder what we could have been had I stayed near
The one, that got away

Would you let me in or would it be a waste
Of long past treasured time, some far off happy place
That a decade of should have and would have and could have
Just cannot replace

Hello will never be the same, and good -bye’s the one to blame
I meant every thing I said on the corner of your bed
I wonder what we could have been had I stayed near
The one, that got away

Erona Los Angeles, California

Music has never been a stranger to Erona. It began as a choir solo with 300 back up singers at age of 10 and she has not stopped since. Though influenced by artists like Billie Holiday, Janis Ian, Jeff Buckley, and Paula Cole, music, to her, was no longer about telling someone else's story, but rather living her own. A soulful song or a deep blues groove allow her to share her stories this far. ... more
