Randy Travis – If I Didn’t Have You Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Well, I lost my heart on the day we met
But I gained a lot and that I don’t regret
Then I hung around ’til you said I do
I knew I wouldn’t have nothin’ if I didn’t have you

[Verse 2]
Well, it changed my thinkin’ when you changed your name
And neither one of us will ever be the same
And I swear I’m never gonna be untrue
‘Cause I wouldn’t have nothin’ if I didn’t have you

[Chorus]
If I didn’t have you I’d long ago
Been left in the dark out in the cold
Blowin’ around from town to town
Like a feather in the wind
If I didn’t have you I know I’d be
Flounderin’ around like a ship at sea
Lost in the rain of a hurricane
And that’s where I’d have been

[Verse 3]
But I didn’t get lost ’cause I saw your light
Shinin’ like a beacon on a cold dark night
And the sun came up and the skies turned blue
No, I wouldn’t have nothin’ if I didn’t have you
[Verse 4]
Well, I count my blessings every night I pray
That the Lord lets me keep you just one more day
And every day He does, ’cause God knows too
That I wouldn’t have nothin’ if I didn’t have you

[Chorus]
If I didn’t have you I’d long ago
Been left in the dark out in the cold
Blowin’ around from town to town
Like a feather in the wind
If I didn’t have you I know I’d be
Flounderin’ around like a ship at sea
Lost in the rain of a hurricane
And that’s where I’d have been

[Post-Chorus]
But I didn’t get lost ’cause I saw your light
Shinin’ like a beacon on cold dark night
Then the sun came up and the skies turned blue
No I wouldn’t have nothing if I didn’t have you

[Intro]
Well I’ve already said it but I swear it’s true
I know I wouldn’t have nothin’ if I didn’t have you
