  • How do I get through one night without you
    If I had to live without you
    What kinda life would that be
    Oh I, I need you in my arms, need you to hold
    You're my world, my heart, my soul

    If you ever leave
    Well, baby you would take away everything
    Good in my life
    And tell me now

    How do I live without you?
    I want to know
    How do I breathe without you?
    If you ever go
    How do I ever, ever survive
    How do I, how do I, oh how do I live

    Without you
    There'd be no sun in my sky
    There would be no love in my life
    There'd be no world left for me

    And I, well baby, I don't know what I would do
    I'd be lost if I lost you

    If you ever leave
    Well, baby you would take away everything
    Real in my life
    And tell me now

    How do I live without you
    I want to know
    How do I breathe without you
    If you ever go
    How do I ever, ever survive
    How do I, how do I, oh how do I live

    Please tell me baby how do I go on

    If you ever leave
    Well, baby you would take away everything
    Need you with me
    Baby don't you know that you're everything
    Good in my life

    And tell me now
    How do I live without you
    I want to know
    How do I breathe without you
    If you ever go
    How do I ever, ever survive
    How do I, how do I, oh how do I live

    How do I live without you?
    How do I live without you, baby?
