You Stayed 

You stayed with her, but don't get confused.  Somehow you found a way to stay with me too.  Sure, she has you in the physical sense.  But your memory, oh boy, it hasn't left.  Each car I pass at midnight has headlights just like yours.  Every song on the radio takes me back, and every …
