lyrics

VERSE1
There comes a time in every man's life
when he thinks about what might have been.
Would I have turned left instead of right
if I had it to do again?
But I know you love me
and that I'm in love with you.
So I think that I would do
that same thing all over again.

CHORUS1
See I could have stardom, I could have fame
Everyone all over would know my name.
Have a big house, have a fancy car
but none of that stuff would fo very far.
Have lots of money, a private plane,
But somehow it just wouldn't be the same
'cause all of this and more would never do
If I Don't Have You, If I Don't Have You
If I didn't have you,
I'm thinking nothing else would do.

VERSE2
So let bygones be bygones
I'm thinking things have turned out right
'cause if I'd have done anything different
I might not be here with you tonight.
And I know you love me
and that I'm in love with you
So I know that I would do
the same thing all over again.

CHORUS1
See I could have stardom, I could have fame
Everyone all over would know my name.
Have a big house, have a fancy car
but none of that stuff would fo very far.
Have lots of money, a private plane,
But somehow it just wouldn't be the same
'cause all of this and more would never do
If I Don't Have You, If I Don't Have You
If I didn't have you,
I'm thinking nothing else would do.

CHORUS2
See I could be washed up, Lose my fame
No one around would remember my name.
They could take my house and take my car
but none of that stuff changes who you are.
If I was down in the gutter, down in the drain
would your love for me still remain?
'cause I don't know what I would ever do
If I Don't Have You, If I Don't Have You
If I didn't have you,
I know that nothing else would do.
