“Stay With Me” is from my first album, First Time Around,” says Watson. “It’s a serious song about divorce and how it touches people’s lives. The song is a journey, beginning with a young husband and father, in the first verse, to a little later, when the children are teens, in the second verse. In the final verse, the man is now old, and his wife is remarried, and his children have grown. This song always touches the soul of those who spend a life living with divorce. It is dedicated to all the mothers, fathers and children, who live through a split and blended family.,.through hard times and good times, as well.”
