The 77s – Don't Leave Me Long lyrics

You made a promise to me long ago
Saying that you would never leave
But this I know
You were the one
Not me who chose to blow
When I loved you so
Raise high the roofbeam
I don't care, make room
For more lonliness here
It doesn't matter what you do or say
I'm gonna love you, love you anyway
Your love is my umbrella
Let go in the wind
Settle down upon me once again
Don't leave me long
Don't leave me lonely
You'd been sending out the word to go
I needed love
I didn't want to know
I pretended not to hear and
So I stayed too long with you
I stayed too long with you
It's true
You blew into me
Like the wind and then you
Blew right out again
Your love is like the wind
Blowing through the trees
Stir it up
Blow it down on me
Don't leave me long
Don't leave me lonely
My love is as strong
As the day is long
Put an end to my pretty little song
Don't leave me long
Don't leave me lonely
You never wanted to tell me
What you were feeling
Now I see
You've got me reeling from it
I really needed your love
My wounds
Have been bleeding enough
Come patch me up, patch me up
It was the seventh hour
The seventh day
The seventh
Of the pretty month of May
You said goodbye
Went away
And I'm not the same
Not the same
Not the same
I don't want to live
With this pain everyday
I don't want to stay here
In a bad way
Don't leave me long
Don't leave me lonely
You take away every fear
That I hold so dear
You give away so much love
I just gotta be near
Don't leave me long
Don't leave me long
