Keep You Much Longer by Akon

What do you think?

Akon wrote ‘Keep You Much Longer’ about a relationship where he prioritised work over quality time with his girlfriend, and now she is too busy to spend time with him, he realises his mistake. 

I have heard this played at a funeral, but the meaning changes to being unable to spend anymore time with your love because they have passed away. 

Lyrics

Wish I could Keep You Much Longer
I know You gotta Go ’cause you got things to do
Wish I could Keep You Much Longer
Now You to Busy for Me Girl like I was To You

Wish I could Stop By
And Maybe Say, “Hi”
Wish I could just Stop By
And Lay By Your Side

The Tables have Turned
And I’ve Finally Learned
That this is Makin’ Up for Every Day I was Gone
And that’s Why I’m Concerned
But Now it’s Confirmed
That You Spread Your Wings and Learned to Fly All Alone

Darkness in the Night
I’ll Find that Light for You
As Long as I got Eyes
I’ll have a Sight for You
Long as I am Alive Baby I?d Die for You
I Wanna Be With You

Wish I could Keep You Much Longer
I know You gotta Go ’cause you got things to do
Wish I could Keep You Much Longer
Now You to Busy for Me Girl like I was To You

Wish I could Stop By
And Maybe Say, “Hi”
Wish I could just Stop By
And Lay By Your Side

You’re Always On My Mind
While I’m Racin’
While I’m Paper Chasin’
You Were There when I said One Day I’d Get Up Out that basement
Playin’ as My Agent
For You, There’s No Replacement
You Will Always Be My Girl
and You can Hold Me on that Statement

Darkness in the Night
I’ll Find that Light for You
Keep You Much Longer lyrics on

 

 

 

Wish I could Stop By

And Maybe Say, “Hi”

Wish I could just Stop By
And Lay By Your Side

Baby I Know You
And How We Do
Doin’ Exactly What I Taught You
Gotta Get that Money First before You Come Spend that Precious Time with Your Boo
And I know I gotta just Take It
Even though it’s Drivin’ Me Crazy
Always Wanted to See My Girl Make It
Ooh-Yeah

Wish I could Keep You Much Longer
I know You gotta Go ’cause you got things to do
Wish I could Keep You Much Longer
Now You to Busy for Me Girl like I was To You

(Wish I Could Keep You So Much Longer)

Wish I could Stop By
And Maybe Say, “Hi”
Wish I could just Stop By
And Lay By Your Side

Wish I could Keep You Much Longer
I know You gotta Go ’cause you got things to do
Wish I could Keep You Much Longer
Now You to Busy for Me Girl like I was To You

(Wish I Could Keep You Baby?
I Just Wanna Keep You Longer)
