Clapton, Eric - Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight Lyrics




Do me wrong, do me right, do me right baby.
Tell me lies but hold, hold me tight.
Save your goodbyes till the morning light,
But don't let me be lonely tonight.

Say goodbye, woman say hello, say hello.
It's sure enough good to see you, but it's time to go,
And don't say yes, but please don't say no.
I don't want to be lonely tonight.

Go away then, damn you, go on and do as you please, do as you please,
But you ain't going to see me getting down on my knees,
'Cause I'm undecided and your heart's been divided.
You've been turning my world upside down.

Do me wrong, do me right, do me right baby.
Go on and tell me lies but hold, hold me tight.
And save your goodbyes till the morning light,
But don't let me be lonely tonight.

Save your goodbyes till the morning light,
But don't let me be lonely tonight.
'Cause I don't want to be lonely tonight.

I don't want to be lonely.
Don't do it, don't do it, don't do it, don't do it.

    He is pouring out his heart and soul for us as he has done for all these years. Clapton is the best of the best in my book. God has a special place for people like this that make such beautiful music for all of us to enjoy and cherish forever. It will never die. This will be playing way after all of us here are gone bank on it!

    clapton is able to put the emotions in the strings here. what a gifted musician he was and is

  33. Matt G

  42. Davidmcfarlaneblues.

    I'm an EC fan but JT's is my favourite version.

  43. carole adams

    I like James Taylor, BUT he doesn't even compare to this. So good.But it is EC, so that goes without saying...

    Umberto Tortellini

    JT version is more heartfelt imo

    Sir Kayda

    Gotta cast another vote for this version.

    Mayara Torres

    Tas D. Amour True!

  45. frontcentermusician

    denise blighe

    mine too...

    Sir Kayda

    Mine too

  46. Lucineia Amaral

    adoroooooooooo essa música

  47. Frith

    James Taylor still did it best.

    Dammiel Mora

    Frith no

    Leo Velazquez

    No way ... Clapton Is The boss aguante Clapton gringo careta

    Peter Iacontino

    Everyone has their opinion. I always liked J.T. They are two different versions ! E.C. puts more emotion into his singing !

    Lidia Pope

    Exactly

    Téo Crommen

    @Peter Iacontino I wouldn't say he puts more emotion. He just sings in a way that most people perceive as more emotional. J.T. delivers emotions that go beyond just pure guttural sorrow, his version warms the heart in a reassuring way and the emotions that are passed on through his singing are very subtle. E.C. hits you with a lot of one emotion, whereas J.T. gives you a lot of different emotions in a gentle way. But again, just my opinion

  48. Ana Martha Ligeiro Marques

    looooooooooooveeeeeeeee !!! EC forever !!!!

  49. Jauffrey Leonardi

    better than the original for me and I love isley brothers

  50. Alvina Hernandez

    Best version of this song, by anyone. Those high notes he hits give chills.

    HTHAMMACK1

    I'm going to have to disagree. George Benson's is much better, and I say that as a fan of Clapton.

    Casey Morris

    @HTHAMMACK1
