This song is by Colosseum and appears on the album Valentyne Suite (1969) and on the album The Grass Is Greener (1970).

Baby don't you leave me in this world alone
We'll go and see somebody who won't shake his head and moan
Doctors can do anything, it is said today
Yeah and I'll do anything, yeah I'll even pray
But don't you leave me alone like this
I couldn't stand it without your kiss
So don't go, oh don't you go

Well there must be something that will cure you true
Yeah is there anything I can do?
I just can't stand it without your living breath
But all that's left for us is your certain death
But baby don't you go
I couldn't face the world alone
So I'll follow you, yeah I'll follow you, oh

To the ends of the mountains I'll tread a path
Yeah just to hear once more your fragrant laugh
I'll swim great rivers, yeah and I swim the seas
Yeah I'll do anything, oh anything to please
So we'll go together and face the things to come
I'm not afraid, there, that's done

Liner Notes (US release):

Why people have to write songs with such doomy

lyrics I'll never know. It's all about a chick with a

fatal illness and her fella who is going to kill him-

self so that he can be with her (sic). Anyway, Neil

Ardley's string quartet parts are super.
