Michael Franks - Without Your Love lyrics
Love's so convincing when it begins
Righteous and real, but it soon deserts you
Before you know it you've reached the end
Honestly, I never meant to hurt you.
The moment that I found you
I built my world around you
You changed your name and you became my home
And I called you my own
Our happiness seemed haunted
But you were all I wanted
No clouds could fade the love we made sublime
We were stronger than time.
Time won in the end
Our love was too precious to pretend
Somehow I lost you.
Without your love, will I ever be the same?
Will the spring arrive?
Will the rainbows chase the rain?
Without your love
We sailed through life together
Survived the raging weather
And then one day you came to say "good-bye"
And I never knew why
I prayed my heart could hide you
From all the storms inside you
The compass forced us way off-course somehow,
And I never knew how
Wind won in the end
It wanted to break us, not to bend,
And now I've lost you.
