(Michael Lardie, Alan Niven)

Let the world be still tonight
Let the fire be the only light
Draw the curtain, pull down the shade
In easy arms we'll lay

So come on lady now close your eyes
Let the madness pass on by
Loosen up your golden hair
Stroke away my every care

There's no comfort in strangers
That I can't find right here

Layin' down in the arms of Sister Mary
Will her lovin' ever last?
Layin' down in the arms of Mother Mary
Let the world drift past

For a moment a perfect love
Pure and silent like a star above
Never mind 'bout tomorrow's fears
Piece of mind is here
Outside's a world of strangers
So I will stay right here

Layin' down in the arms of Sister Mary
Will her lovin' ever last?
Layin' down in the arms of Mother Mary
Nothin' more to ask

Let her lovin' come to you
Let her lovin' come to you
Oh her love will come to you and bring you home, yeah

Outside's a world of strangeness
So I will stay right here
