Lyrics

I could hardly believe it
When I heard the news today
I had to come and get it straight from you
They said you were leavin’
Someone’s swept your heart away
From the look upon your face,
I see it’s true
So tell me all about it
Tell me about the plans you’re makin’
Then tell me one thing more before I go
Tell me how am supposed to live without you
Now that I’ve been lovin’ you so long
How am I supposed to live without you
How am I supposed to carry on
When all that I’ve been livin ‘for is gone
I didn’t come here for cryin’
Didn’t come here to breakdown
It’s just a dream of mine is coming to an end
And how can I blame you
When I build my world around
The hope that one day we’d be so much
More than friends
And I don’t wanna know the price I’m
Gonna pay for dreaming
When even now it’s more than I can take
Songwriters: Douglas Thomas James / Michael Bolton
