  • We were raised under Grey skies
    But you'll never hear us complain
    Oh, and father led with examples
    Of how to draw beauty from pain
    So I found a thousand springtimes in her eyes
    And I learned to play games in the rain

    Oh, when you left us you didn't really go
    I know you're watching me from my head to my toes
    And I will not go without, I won't walk without you, no
    And truth be told, everybody knows
    You put the food on my plate and you gave me my clothes
    And I will not go without, I won't walk without you, no

    I find the touch of your hand in the breeze
    And the light of your smile in sun rays
    You should know I hear the sound of your voice in music
    So I speak with you every day

    Oh, when you left us you didn't really go
    I know you're watching me from my head to my toes
    And I will not go without, I won't walk without you, no
    And truth be told, everybody knows
    You put the food on my plate and you gave me my clothes
    And I will not go without, I won't walk without you, no, ooh

    We have overcome 'cause of what you've done
    And it's plain to see that you're here with me
    We have overcome 'cause of what you've done
    And it's plain to see that you're here with me, oh, no

    When you left us you didn't really go
    I know you're watching me from my head to my toes
    And I will not go without, I won't walk without you, no
    And truth be told, everybody knows
    You put the food on my plate and you gave me my clothes
    And I will not go without, I won't walk without you, no
    When you left us you didn't really go
    I know you're watching me from my head to my toes
    And I will not go without, I won't walk without you, no
    And truth be told, everybody knows
    You put the food on my plate and you gave me my clothes
    And I will not go, I won't walk Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
