Song For Martin (McTell Ralph)

Don't leave Martin alone tonight Just because he looks all right I've seen him look like this before And if he says he wants to be alone At least try to walk with him home See if you can put your foot in the door Don't leave Martin alone tonight Keep him talking until daylight This time well I think he's coming through Don't leave Martin alone tonight Just because he looks all right He's only gotta pick up the phone Now one of them guys in the car will be around And give him just enough on account They know that he'll be back for more. Don't leave Martin alone tonight Keep him talking until daylight This time well I think he's coming through. Now he's trying to show he's cool, but I know him I ain't fooling And because you love him he's bound to lie When this time he's got so close Now's the time to be scared the most He's looking everywhere but in your eyes. So don't leave Martin alone tonight Keep him talking until daylight This time well I think he's coming through. 'S endless coffee and cigarettes Now don't take it hard when he says He doesn't need you cos that's when he needs you most He'll cry till he laughs and laugh till he weeps And suddenly he'll fall asleep Then you can let your own eyes close Don't leave Martin alone tonight Keep him talking until daylight This time well I think he's coming through This time I think he's coming through.
