Don Williams – I Wouldn’t Want To Live If You Didn’t Love Me Lyrics

Sometimes you may think
I take you for granted
And granted, sometimes maybe I do
‘Cause, I’ve grown so used to you
Lyin’ next to me
That I wouldn’t want to live
If you didn’t love me.

No, I wouldn’t want to get up
In the mornin’ if you weren’t there
To kiss me and start my day, off right
And to be waiting, when I get home
With lovin’ just for me
No, I wouldn’t want to live
If you didn’t love me.

It’s love that makes the world go ’round
And my love for you
Just grows with leaps and bounds
‘Cause, you know just what to do
When the world has turned all blue
And I wouldn’t want to live
If you didn’t love me.

No, I wouldn’t want to get up
In the mornin’ if you weren’t there
To kiss me and start my day, off right
And to be waiting, when I get home
With lovin’ just for me
No, I wouldn’t want to live
If you didn’t love me.
