Carmen McRae

Carmen Mercedes McRae (April 8, 1920 – November 10, 1994) was an American jazz singer, composer, pianist, and actress. Considered one of the most influential jazz vocalists of the 20th century, it was her behind-the-beat phrasing and her ironic interpretations of song lyrics that made her memorable. McRae drew inspiration from Billie Holiday, but established her own distinctive voice. She went on to record over 60 albums, enjoying a rich musical career, performing and recording in the United States, Europe, and Japan. more »

DON'T GO AWAY

	Words and Music by Margo Guryan



Don't go away
Now that you walked into my life
And brought me sunshine
Don't go away
Now that you opened up my door
And gave me flowers

Don't go away
Now that you painted a smile
On a face that knew how to cry
Don't go away
Now that you've shown me a way
That I don't have to say good-bye

Don't go away
Now that you walked into my life
And gave me good times
Don't go away 
Now that you opened up my door
And brought me true love

Don't go away
Now that you planted a dream
In a mind that never knew how
Don't go away
How could I live without you
After you made me need you now

Don't go away
Now that you walked into my life
And gave me good times
Don't go away 
Now that you opened up my door
And brought me true love
