"Don't Walk Away" as written by and Jeff Lynne....
Why do I say, don't walk away
You'll be the way your were before
When you don't want me anymore

Don't turn around, don't ever leave
A lonely room where empty days
Are gathering to meet me when you're gone-
Gone- how in the world will I go on

(Don't walk away) all you gotta do is stay
(Don't walk away) all you gotta do is stay
(Don't walk away)

Don't walk away, don't say goodbye
Don't turn around, don't let it die
When shadows fall, when day is done
All through the night, all of my life
Don't walk away

Is it a dream, when will it end
When everything we've ever known
Has ended and I'm all alone

Where will I go, where will I be
The feelings that I've never shown
Maybe I'll find the answer when you're gone-
Gone- how in the world will I go on

(Don't walk away) all you gotta do is stay
(Don't walk away) all you gotta do is stay
(Don't walk away)

Don't walk away, don't say goodbye
Don't turn around, don't let it die
When shadows fall, when day is done
All through the night, all of my life
Don't walk away

    General CommentCan't believe no one has said anything about this yet! It's a good song. I believe it's off of Xanadu. It's more of a ballad type thing, which you don't get too often out of ELO but overall it's something different and I love it.

    General CommentGood song - all the ELO songs from Xanadu were well done, including the title song w. ONJ.

    unfortunately the movie didn't fare well, given its release at the end of the disco era. ELO got labeled as a 'disco' band, and they steadily fell off the charts in the early 80's.

    Thank goodness Jeff had good sense to leverage his producing of ONJ to produce other great artists like Harrison, McCartney, Petty, Beatles Anthology and of course, whipped up the Traveling Wilbury's just for fun.

    Jeff has an incredible talent for producing hits - what he touches turns to gold.
