Ralph McTell - Song For Martin

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.
