Don't go (please stay)
Don't go (please stay)

If I got on my knees and I pleaded with you
Not to go but to stay in my ar-arms
Would you walk out the door like you did once before?
Or would this time be different, would you sta-a-ay?

Don't go (please stay)
Don't go

If I called out your name like a prayer in the night
Would you leave me alone with my tears?
Knowing i-i, I love you so-o, would you still turn and go?
Or would this time be different in some wa-a-ay?

Don't go (please stay)
(please stay)

You took me away from the rest of the world
When you taught me to love you like this
Now I hang by a thread in the canyon of doom
But I still can be saved.. by your kiss

If I got on my knees and I pleaded with you
Not to go but to stay in my ar-arms
Would you walk out the doorlike you did once before?
Or would this time be different, would you sta-a-ay?

(don't go)
(please stay)
(don't go)
(please stay)
(don't go)
(please sta-ay-ay-ay-ay) (ay-ay-ay-ay) (ay-ay-ay-ay)
