Sandy Denny

Alexandra Elene Maclean "Sandy" Denny (6 January 1947 – 21 April 1978) was an English singer and songwriter, perhaps best known as the lead singer for the folk rock band Fairport Convention. She has been described by Allmusic's Richie Unterberger as "the pre-eminent British folk rock singer". more »

It seems that loving is a game that I can't win
No sooner are you here than gone again
Is there nothing I can say
To change your mind and stay
Alone with you is all I long to be
Will you stay awhile with me.

I've often gazed into my crystal ball
To find out if you think of me at all
But there's no reason why
You should even try
For there's nothing I can give as you can see
If you stay awhile with me.

Stay awhile with me
And I will show you I'm true
Stay awhile with me
That's all I'm asking you to do.

I see you in the street lamp's rusty gleam
It casts a magic spell as in a dream
The night is growing old
Come in from the cold
I'll lock the door and throw away the key
If you stay awhile with me.
