  • Here she comes, mm, just like an angel.
    Seems like forever that she's been on my mind.
    Nothing has changed, she thinks I'm a waste of her time.

    There she goes.
    No, she don't know what she's missing.
    Can't she see I'll never give up the fight.
    I'll do all I can.
    She understands my desire.

    I've been on the outside looking in.
    Let me into your heart.
    Oh. There's nothing on earth that should keep us apart.
    Baby, I can't live without your love and affection.
    I can't face another night on my own.
    I'd give up my pride to save me from being alone,
    'cause I can't live without your love.
    Oo your love.

    So I wait, mm, here for an answer.
    Wonder if tomorrow will be like this today.
    I keep holding on, can't go on living this way, baby.

    I've been on the outside looking in.
    Bring my tears to an end, oh.
    I realize it's no use for me to pretend.
    Oh, yeah. I can't live without your love and affection.
    I can't face another night on my own.
    I'd give up my pride to save me from being alone,
    'cause I can't live without your love.

    With your love, I put my arms around you.
    Can't find the words to tell you that I can't live without your love.
    I can't live without your love and affection.
    I can't face another night on my own.
    I'd give up my pride to save me from being alone.
    Baby, I can't live without your love and affection.
    I just can't go on this way any more.
    As hard as I try there's one thing that I know for sure.
    I can't live without your love.

    There she goes.
    I can't live without your love, baby.
    There she goes.
    I can't live without your love, baby.
    There she goes.
    I can't live without your love, baby.

  • Steve from Chino HillsGunnar's family was on Celebrity Wife Swap. He's now a very cautious, humble family man. Gone is the long flowing hair.
  • Condor from Tarpon Springs, FlWithout Nelson, there could be no Hanson.
  • Jeff from Flint, MiThis CD has a few songs that got airtime. Everyone should take a few minutes and listen to a feww of there songs. POP story tellers!
  • Craig from Manitowoc, WiAwesome hit of the early 1990's. I recently dragged out the cassette I have of Nelson and listen to it like I did in the day.
