Conway Twitty – Don’t Take it Away Lyrics

I been lookin’ for you all night long, darlin’
You’ve got to talk to me
I wanna tell you how wrong I’ve been
And I won’t do it again
You know that woman didn’t mean a thing to me

I hope I don’t embarrass you too much
Here in front of all your friends
I’m gonna get down on my knees

Please let me make it
Please I can’t give you up
‘Cause you’ve made love
So good for me so long

Don’t take it away
‘Cause love don’t come easy
Darlin’, I’m sorry
I stepped over the line

Don’t take it away
Don’t make me go crazy
‘Cause I would follow you
To the ends of my mind

From now on, I’m gonna be the kind of man
That you can lean on
And when the waters of life
Get a little too rough or a little too deep
I’m gonna be your stepping stone

And, oh, I remember all those nights
That you used to take right a hold of me
And you’d hold on

Please let me make it
Please I can’t give you up
‘Cause you’ve made love
So good for me so long

Don’t take it away
‘Cause love don’t come easy
Darlin’, I’m sorry
I stepped over the line

Don’t take it away
Don’t make me go crazy
‘Cause I would follow you
To the ends of my mind
