Don't go away, stay where you are,
I know that if I let you go very far,
You'd disappear, gentle and dear,
Charming and gay, don't go away.
I have learned out of the past
Something so lovely is too good to last.
No one has nets to hold a star.
I wouldn't try to hold you fast,
I'll only say, stay where you are,
Stay where you are, don't go away.
