Lyrics

Oh won’t you stay, stay awhile
With your own ones
Don’t ever stray
Stray so far from your own ones
This old world is so cold
Don’t care nothin’ for your soul
You share with your own ones

Don’t rush away, rush away
From your own ones
Just one more day, one more day
With your own ones
For the world is so cold
Don’t care nothin’ for your soul
You share with your own ones

There’s a stranger
And he’s standing at your door
May be your best friend
Might be your brother
You may never know

I’m going back, going back
To my own ones
Back to talk, talk awhile
With my own ones
For the world is so cold
Don’t care nothing for your soul

[Van Morrison]
