Bonnie Raitt – I Can't Help You Now lyrics

where were you when i was fallin down
Buzzin round your heart
Why'd you wait till i was moving on
to come out of the dark
to say i'm what you need
and you could spend your life with me
well i can't help you now
(sorry baby, i can't help you )
no, i can't help you now
(keep away, i've fallen in love)
maybe there was a time
but sometimes time runs out
and i can't help you know
forty days since i stopped countin the days
and countin the ways that i loved you
good long while since i found
good enough reasons to stop believin that you
are what i really want
and now that you you do baby, i don't
now you sayi'm the one you need
and you could spend your life with me
but i can't help you know,no
i can't help you know
baby there was a time
and i wish i could somehow
but i can't help you
can't help you know
