Roy Buchanan – Please Don't Turn Me Away lyrics

Please don't turn me away
Please let me stay
I'm asking you for just a little bit of your time
I'm asking you to leave the past behind
You don't have to tell me that it was never right,
I know that baby
But all I really know right now is that I need you tonight

I need your love at once to stop the rain
To easy my pain
I need the sound of your sweet voice
Baby, to comfort me through my dark and rhythmic night

Please don't turn me away
Please let me stay
Don't make me pay for each and every one of my crimes
All I want to do baby, all I want to do is hold you one more time
And if I cannot ever be you lover again
For one more night... For one more night let me be your friend
