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.
