"Don't Leave" as written by and James/armstrong Catto....
Don't go away
If you can't forgive
Believe, just to live
You must forget
Forget the times
You misunderstand
Let them slip through your hand
With the sand of time
Forget those hours
When perhaps has died
At the hands of why
& our lack of faith
Don't go away
Don't go away
Don't leave

Me, I'll offer you pearls
Made out of the rain
That falls in a world
Where rain never falls
I'll ransack the earth
By day & by night
To cover your body
With gold & with light
I'll make a domain
Where love will be king
Love will be everything
& you'll be the queen
Don't go away
Don't go away
Don't leave

Don't go away
I'll invent for you
Words just meant for you
& you'll know what's meant
& I'll tell you the truth
About how other lovers
Looked into each other
& how they were moved
Then I'll read to you
The story of kings
Who lived without meeting you
Died without knowing you
Don't go away
Dont' go away
Don't leave

& just when you think
The volcano's expired
The craters turn pink
& the ash turns to fire
In a charred barren land
You can still be surprised
Wheat suddenly stands
Like a dream of Julys
When the sun sets
In a brilliant sky
The black & the red
Never touch as they die
Don't go away
Dont' go away
Don't leave

Don't go away
I won't cry anymore
I won't talk anymore
I'll crawl under the bed
& I'll watch you from there
As you smile & you dance
& I'll listen to hear
How you talk, when you laugh
It's enough
Being the shadow of your shadow
The shadow of your hand
The shadow of your man
Don't go away
Dont' go away
Don't leave
