You say your dreams are burned to ashes
And your smiles have turned to tears,
It seems to me you welcome sanest
As you surrender to your fears

So what's a man like me supposed to do
When all I want is just to make love to you

Don't turn away, before the night is over
Don't turn away, before the night is gone
Don't turn away, the night may hold the answer
So don't turn away, before the night,
Before the night is gone

You say your heart is lost forever
And you're always gonna give your love in vain
So you paint yourself a lonely portrait
And hide your love away again

You turn away from what you feel inside,
You can't forget all your foolish pride

Don't turn away, before the night is over
Don't turn away, before the night is gone
Don't turn away, the night may hold the answer
So don't turn away, before the night is gone

So now I'm asking you this question
Am I gonna give you all my love in vain
Do you wanna drown in your own sorrow
Or are you gonna try to love again

Don't turn away from what you feel inside,
You should try to forget about all your foolish pride

Don't turn away, before the night is over
Don't turn away, before the night is gone
Don't turn away, the night may hold the answer
So don't turn away, before the night,
Before the night,
Before the night is gone

Don't turn away from me baby,
No, no, no, no.
Don't put me away,
Don't walk away from me darling
I need your love,
Oh baby,
I need your love to rescue me,
An' I'm coming for you, baby...
