You can't stay here.
Your company's good, I know
But I must wake up alone.
And the party is over.

You can't stay here.
I'm moments away from sleep.
And what you want to say can keep
Til I'm awake and I'm...sober.

You can't stay here
When everyone else has gone.
I've nothing for you,
No song to sing for you only.

You can't stay here
Maybe you can't see why
But I'm an old-fashioned guy
And I'd rather be...lonely.

Maybe you think I'm unkind when I tell you to go away
I know what you offer, and I could be softer
And tell you to stay.

But to me, you're a stranger, to touch you is danger, I know it's true.
'Cause what I've got at home is too dear, to risk for an hour with you.
You can't stay here.

I'll be all right alone.
And when I'm safe in her arms at home...
I'll thank you for leaving.

You can't stay here.

You can't stay here.

You can't stay...here.
