Album: What's Love Got To Do With It (93) 
So who are you gonna turn to when the light is fading 
Who are you gonna run to when the rain sets in 
Who do you come to when the blues comes calling 
Who are you trying to fool coming around here again 
Yes, I heard you found a new plaything 
Right now it seems you need a friend 

 Why don't you stay a while 
Just till the night is through 
Tell me you¡¯re lonely, baby, I'm lonely, too 
So stay awhile 
I'll stay ahile 

 All I ever wanted was a shoulder to lean on 
And all you ever wanted was a dream that would last 
Promises made in the heat of the moment 
I know I never told you that was too much to ask 
But it won¡¯t take much gentle persuasion 
To make you remember, make me forget 

 You may not be a knight in white satin 
Maybe the best was all in the past 
Turn the lights low, lay down beside me 
Just till the dawn, I don¡¯t want you to go 

 Tell me you want me 
Baby, I need you too 
Stay awhile
