  • If I never feel you in my arms again
    If I never feel your tender kiss again
    If I never hear "I love you" now and then
    Will I never make love to you once again?
    Please understand, if love ends
    Then I promise you, I promise you that
    That I shall never breathe again (breathe again, breathe again)
    That I shall never breathe again (breathe again)

    Well
    And I can't stop thinking about
    About the way things used to be
    And I can't stop thinking about
    About the love that you made to me
    And I can't get you out of my head
    How in the world will I begin
    To let you walk right out my life
    And throw my heart away?
    And I can't stop caring about
    About the apple of my eye
    And I can't stop doing without
    Without the center of my life
    And I can't get you out of my head
    And I know I can't pretend
    That I won't die if you decide if you won't see me again

    If I never feel you in my arms again (again)
    If I never feel your tender kiss again (again)
    If I never hear "I love you" now and then (again)
    Will I never make love to you once again?
    Please understand, if love ends
    Then I promise you, I promise you that
    That I shall never breathe again (breathe again, breathe again)
    That I shall never breathe again (breathe again)

    And I can't stop thinking about
    About the way my life would be
    No, I can't stop thinking about
    How could you love me then leave?
    And I can't get you out of my mind
    God knows how hard I've tried
    And if you walk right out my life, God knows I'm sure to die
    And I can't stop doing without, no
    (Without the rhythm of my heart)
    No, I can't stop doing without, no
    (For I will surely fall apart)
    And I can't get you out of my mind
    ('Cause I know I can't deny)
    And I would die if you decide you won't see me again

    If I never feel you in my arms again (if I never, ever see you)
    If I never feel your tender kiss again (no, no, no, no)
    If I never hear "I love you" now and then (now and then)
    Will I never make love to you once again? (never make love, never make love)
    Please, please, please understand, if love ends (if it should ever end)
    Then I promise you, I promise you that
    That I shall never breathe again, no, no, no (breathe again, breathe again)
    That I shall never breathe again (breathe again) Writer/s: Kenneth Edmonds
