  • Without you there's no change
    My nights and days are grey
    If I reached out and touched the rain
    It just wouldn't feel the same

    Without you I'd be lost
    I'd slip down from the top
    I'd slide down so low
    Girl you'd never never know

    Without you without you
    A sailor lost at sea
    Without you woman
    The world comes down on me

    Without you in my life
    I'd slowly wilt and die
    But with you by my side
    You're the reason I'm alive
    But with you in my life
    You're the reason I'm alive
    But without you, without you

    Without you, my hope is small
    Let me be me all along
    You let the fires rage inside
    Knowing someday I'd grow strong

    Without you without you
    A sailor lost at sea
    Without you woman
    The world comes down on me

    Without you in my life
    I'd slowly wilt and die
    But with you by my side
    You're the reason I'm alive
    But with you in my life
    You're the reason I'm alive
    But without you, without you

    I could face a mountain
    But I could never climb alone
    I could start another day
    But how many, just don't know
    You're the reason the sun shines down
    And the nights, they don't grow cold
    Only you that I'll hold when I'm young
    Only you as we grow old

    Without you in my life
    I'd slowly wilt and die
    But with you by my side
    You're the reason I'm alive
    But with you in my life
    You're the reason I'm alive
    But without you, without you Writer/s: MICK MARS, NIKKI SIXX

  • Jeffre from New Braunfels TexasLisalust is correct. Video was shot on the Strand at the Old Opera House. U was lucky enough to actually get to watch the filming of the video one night. LONG STORY, but true.
  • Lisalust from Galveston Texas Sorry, Vince the video was not shot in corpus christi. It was in Galveston, Texas at the Opera House.
  • Dawn From Ct/fla And Now Tenn from 37857All you dumbasses commenting its a horrible song can pack sand! I didn't get married in the 70's, 80's or 90's. I married my best friend in 2011 after being together for 12 yrs and raising 3 amazing kids from previous marriages. Crue was and always will be part of my life. My Husband and I loved music. We mostly connected with NIN, Godsmack. A7F, FFDP, but I always held Crue to a higher level. We finally married in 2011 and I chose Without You for our wedding song. Unfortunately my Husband committed suicide in 2018 after battling opioid addiction no thanks to his doctors, mixed with depression. This song will forever be part of my life and I am eternally grateful i read Heroin Diaries when it first came out. After my Husband died, my daughter sent me the new version with added pages and pics. I admire Nikki for his strength and fight. I admire Vince for his strength and ability to live after his loss. I admire Mick for his refusal to give up thru his debilitating disease. And Tommy who I witnessed falling from the drums above and literally feeling and hearing him hit the stage. I'm not super religious, but Ive always kept him in my prayers.Ive attended as many tours as I could and even brought my Nephew to his first concert in Estero Fla to see his favorite band Crue perform. Seeing his face while watching Tommy's drum solo directly above us was priceless!! You will always be a part of my life and I thank you! Without You is more than my wedding song. Its all of you, my Husband, my kids, its everything.
  • Anna from Myrtle Beach, ScThis is 1 of the worst songs written in history
  • Athena from Newberg, OrI have to disagree with the 'dating Heather Locklear' statement.

    Tommy and Heather were NOT dating when this song was penned; they were MARRIED at the time.

    Other than that slight error, this is still one of my absolute favorite Crue songs.
  • Johan from Almunge, SwedenHas anyone seen the video? Its really cool, Mick Mars plays with a key at some parts, really awesome, I recommend you guys to watch it =)!
  • Karren from Deerfiled, Nhthis song is great its my wedding song
  • Jessica from Orangeville, CanadaThe song's good but not my favourite
  • Adriana from Monterrey, MexicoI fell in love with this song
