Stay True

from by Oakes & Smith



Recorded live at Pomfret School, Pomfret, CT in May, 2011.


If our parting must be
Please keep safe this keepsake for me
The dream we dreamed
As we lay with love in between
It eases as I see you leave
To know that we go soul to soul
Stay true, stay true

As I get through without you
Too many things can bring me down
I think of you
Your truth rooted deep in the ground
Your branches expand in the sky
Reaching and catching the light
I know that you go soul to soul
Stay true, stay true


from The School Session, released August 8, 2011
