This song is by Smokie and appears on the album Bright Lights & Back Alleys (1977) and on the compilation album The Best Of (2003).

Open up your tired eyes
And force yourself to smile
Yesterday was yesterday
It's gone, it's tomorrow now
It's here, it's tomorrow now
Now I must go
But I'll see you again

When? oh when?
Please don't ask me when
I'll call, I'll write
But I can not stay here tonight
No, I can not stay here tonight
I can't stay here tonight

Light me up a cigarette
And check that my bags are packed
Something I was gonna say
It's gone - till another time
But how long till that other time
I hate to go
But I'll be back again

When? oh when?
Please don't ask me when
I'll call, I'll write
But I can not stay here tonight
No, I can not stay here tonight
I can't stay here tonight

Open up your tired eyes
And force yourself to smile
Yesterday was yesterday
It's gone, it's tomorrow now
It's here, it's tomorrow now
Now I must go
But I'll be back again

When? oh when?
Please don't ask me when
I'll call, I'll write
But I can not stay here tonight
No, I can not stay here tonight
I can't stay here tonight
