I heard Ron sing a song and I don't recall the title or many of the lyrics, but the tune keeps running through my head. Could someone here give me a hand? These are a few of the lyrics:

What if I stay, What if I stay?
After all that's been said
Have we made up that bed?

Another verse says:

What about love, What about love?. . .

Sound familiar?

Hi, PHJim-

The song is "What If I Stayed." I found it on Spotify on the 2010 Ron Hynes album titled Stealing Genius.

There's a YouTube video of a live performance here:

And then the studio version is here:

Anybody got time to transcribe the song?

WHAT IF I STAYED?
As recorded by Ron Hynes on "Stealing Genius" (2010).

What if I stayed?
What if I stayed?
Would it be the same way?
Would it all simply fade
Into lonely night
Between you and I?

What if I stayed?
What if I stayed,
After all that's been said?
Have we made up that bed,
Never to sleep again,
Turn that dream in?

What about love?
What about love?
Isn't that all one heart dreams of?
Isn't that all that we crave?
Isn't love all there is?
Well, if not, what is?

And what about time?
What about all that time, baby, baby, baby?
Should I leave with what's mine,
Leavin' your love behind?
Who would that leave me then?
Much less than all I've been.

So what if I stayed?

Oh, what if I stayed?
What if I stayed?
Would it be the same way?
Would it all simply fade
Into lonely night
Between you and I?

What if I stayed?
What if I stayed,
After all that's been said?
Have we made up that bed,
Never to sleep again,
Turn that dream in?

What if I stayed?
Oh, what if I stayed?
Oh, what if I stayed?
Ooh, ooh, ooh.

Thanks from me as well Jim.

Ron was such a talented man, and it's sad that he had such a tragic life.
