How can you walk away from my love How can you turn around and leave me now How can you walk away from my love You may never find another love like mine Baby wake me up Tell me it’s all been a bad bad dream Ain’t I been good to you Didn’t I give you my everything Baby can’t you hear me sing How can you walk away from my love How can you turn around and leave me now How can you walk away from my love You may never find another love like mine Is it someone else Did they talk you out of loving me What did I do wrong Please baby I don’t wanna be free And I want you to belong to me How can you walk away from my love How can you turn around and leave me now How can you walk away from my love You may never find another love like mine Wait a minute now You can’t leave me here like this Make me understand How you can turn it off like a switch This feeling that I can’t resist How can you walk away from my love How can you turn around and leave me now How can you walk away from my love You may never find another love like mine How can you walk away from my love How can you turn around and leave me now How can you walk away from my love You may never find another love like mine You may never find another love like mine

Well the way I love you baby Got me feeling kinda rough You gave me a little bit of your love But a little bit ain’t enough Ain’t that love love love Ain’t that love love love Ain’t that love love love Ooh it’ll getcha every time I don’t want nobody baby They don’t thrill me like you do All I want is every little thing I can only get from you Ain’t that love love love Ain’t that love love love Ain’t that love love love Ooh it’ll make you lose your mind I been thinking about you baby You’re the best I ever had And even though you let me go Well I still want you so bad Ain’t that love love love Ain’t that love love love Ain’t that love love love Ooh and I still wish you were mine Well the way I love you baby Got me feeling kinda rough You gave me a little bit of your love But a little bit ain’t enough Ain’t that love love love Ain’t that love love love Ain’t that love love love Ooh it’ll make you lose your mind

I never cared for cloudy skies It’s a feeling I can’t disguise These watercolor kinda days Make me wish I could wash away They say the river’s on the rise Like it’s never been I guess the roses need the rain But I know The sun’s gonna shine The sun’s gonna shine again Don’t know when But I know The sun’s gonna shine again Drip drop on my windowsill It rained all night and it’s raining still Waiting for those clouds to break Gives me a feeling I just can’t shake Seems like it’s been pouring down Since I don’t know when You know I never could stand the rain But I know The sun’s gonna shine The sun’s gonna shine again Don’t know when But I know The sun’s gonna shine again Seems like it’s been pouring down Since I don’t know when You know I never could stand the rain But I know The sun’s gonna shine The sun’s gonna shine again Don’t know when But I know The sun’s gonna shine again

My heart beats to the rhythm of the city I move my feet to the tempo of this town My heart beats to the rhythm of the city Lord how I love the sound Wake me up when we reach the city limits I can’t wait to see those lights Let me know when we’re gonna cross that river There’s someone in that city I’ve got to see tonight My heart beats to the rhythm of the city I move my feet to the tempo of this town My heart beats to the rhythm of the city Lord how I love the sound Where I live, there’s just something in the water Where I live, there’s music in the air Take me home, I can’t wait another minute I’ve got to see my baby waiting for me there My heart beats to the rhythm of the city I move my feet to the tempo of this town My heart beats to the rhythm of the city Lord how I love the sound Lord how I love the sound Lord how I love the sound

Well if you don’t wanna tell me I don’t wanna know I can’t be with you Everywhere you go So whatever you’re doing With some so-and-so If you don’t wanna tell me I don’t wanna know Well a little bird told me A story about you It’s only a rumor But it may be true So when you tell a secret Whisper it real low Down low ‘Cause if you don’t wanna tell me I don’t wanna know Don’t wanna know You been telling me lies again Don’t wanna know It’s a stranger or my best friend Baby you know this ain’t my Ain’t my first rodeo Oh no And if you don’t wanna tell me I don’t wanna know No if you don’t wanna tell me I don’t wanna know No I don’t No if you don’t wanna tell me I don’t wanna know I don’t wanna know You don’t have to tell me baby I don’t wanna know

I ain’t done loving you yet I ain’t done loving you yet Even though you can hurt me so I ain’t done loving you yet Someone like you may never come my way again This chance could pass me by I know I could lose you like a feather in the wind But baby I’ve got to try ‘Cause I ain’t done loving you yet I ain’t done loving you yet Even though you can hurt me so I ain’t done loving you yet I had a dream about you the other night You left me in a crowd alone I don’t wanna wake up in the early morning light And turn to find you gone ‘Cause I ain’t done loving you yet I ain’t done loving you yet Even though you can hurt me so I ain’t done loving you yet I spend all my time thinking about you all day And the things we do at night You drive me to distraction in so many little ways And whether it’s wrong or right Well I ain’t done loving you yet I ain’t done loving you yet Even though you can hurt me so I ain’t done loving you yet I ain’t done loving you yet I ain’t done loving you yet Even though you can hurt me so I ain’t done loving you yet Even though you can hurt me so-oh I ain’t done loving you yet I ain’t done loving you yet

Maybe someday You’ll want me again When we’re old and gray And you need a friend I have no doubt I’ll still love you then If I ever get the chance again Nobody knows And you never can tell What tomorrow holds And honey I wish you well But I’ll bring you back From wherever you’ve been If I ever get the chance again Nobody knows And you never can tell What tomorrow holds And honey I wish you well But I’ll be right there When you tell me when If I ever get the chance again Oh if I ever get the chance again Oh if I ever, if I ever get the chance again

Well if I had money I know what I’d do Well if I had money I know what I’d do Honey if I had money I’d spend it all on you Someone like you Should have everything you need Well someone like you Should have everything you need Baby I just feel lucky You ever needed me I went out last night And the night before I went out last night And the night before Baby if I don’t make some money Ain’t going out no more I use six little strings Just to pay my bills I use six little strings Just to pay these bills It’s all I wanna do And all I ever will Well if I had money I know what I’d do Well if I had money I know what I’d do Honey if I had money I’d spend it all on you

You walked back into my life What was I supposed to do Can you tell me something girl How do I say no to you I’ve been going out of my mind You say you’ve been crazy too Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me something girl How do I say no to you Tell me how do I, how do I How do I say no How do I, how do I How do I say no Tell me how do I, how do I How do I say no How do I, how do I How do I say no to you We both know you’ll break my heart But baby only you know when And we both know when you change your mind I’ll just take you back again After all these sleepless nights And after all that we’ve been through Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me something girl How do I say no to you Tell me how do I, how do I How do I say no How do I, how do I How do I say no Tell me how do I, how do I How do I say no How do I, how do I How do I say no to you
