Back To Stay

Although I've been away so many lonely nights,
You know I'm back today,
I'm back to stay in your arms.
And though I've been around and lived the life I said I loved,
You know without you,
Honey, all I do is worth nothing
And girlie, don't cry for me...

Although there might be other people in my life,
Honey, on my mind,
You will always find there's only you.
And though you say you'll journey to some foreign land,
I'll remember you,
Yes, and I'll be true to your memory.
And girlie, don't cry for me...

And when, at last, you do come wandering home to me,
I might look at you.
But it will be through the weeks between.
And when I hold you, it might not be you I have;
In the passing days,
We might both have changed to something new.
And girlie, don't cry for me...

And though I've been away so many lonely nights,
You know I'm back today,
I'm back to stay in your arms.
And though I've been around and lived the life I said I loved,
You know without you,
Honey, all I do is worth nothing.
And girlie, don't cry for me...
