Skeeter Davis – Help Me Make It Through The Night lyrics

Take the ribbon from my hair shake it loose and let it fall
Laying soft against your skin like the shadows on the wall
Come and lay down by my side till the early morning light
All I'm taking is your time help me make it through the night.

I don't know what's right or wrong though I try to understand
I got no promise of tomorrow and tonight I need a friend.

Yesterday is dead and gone and tomorrow's out of sight
It's so sad to be alone help me make it through the night.
Mhmm, mhmm, mhmm, mhmm
I don't want to be alone help me make it through the night
Please don't let me stay alone help me make it through the night.
