There's a light, certain kinda light,
Never ever, never shone on me, no, no.
Honey, I want, I want my whole life
To be lived with you, babe,
That's what I want oh, was to be
Living and loving you.
There's a way, oh everybody say
You can do anything, every thing yeah.
But what good, what good,
Honey, what good could it ever bring
'Cause I ain't got you with my love
And I can't find you babe, no I can't.
You don't know, you don't know what it's like,
No you don't, honey no you don't know,
You don't know what it's like
To love anybody.
Oh honey, I wanna talk about love
And trying to hold somebody
The way I love you babe,
And I've been loving you babe.
In my brain, oh I can see your face again,
I know my frame of mind, yeah.
But nobody, nobody has to ever be so blind,
Honey, like I did, I know I was blind,
Honey, I tell you that I was, I was very, very blind.
Oh but I'm just a girl,
Can't you just take a look at me and tell,
Tell that I live, honey I live and I breathe for you,
Don't you know I do!
But what good, what good,
Honey, what good could ever do
'Cause I ain't got you, that's all I've ever wanted,
And I ain't got you, babe, oh but I've been looking 'round.
But you don't know, you don't know what it's like,
No you don't, no, no, no, you don't know,
Honey, you don't know what it's like
Oh to love anybody.
Oh honey I wanna talk aboutTrying to hold somebody when you're lonely
The way I loved you, baby,
And I just want you to know I tried.
Oh I know that there's a way
'Cause everybody came to me one time and said,
"Honey, you can do anything,
Every little thing,#148; and I think I can.
Oh, but what good, what good,
Honey, what awfully good can it ever, ever bring,
'Cause I can't find you with my love,
And I can't find you babe, oh anywhere.
Oh, but you don't know,
You don't know what it's like,
No you don't and you never ever, ever did.
You don't know, honey,
You don't know what it's like
Oh to love anybody.
Oh honey I wanna talk about trying to hold you.
Oh baby, baby, baby, yeah,
But you don't know,
You don't know what it's like,
And you never ever, ever did,
I said I tried to throw my love around you
And I tried to help you darling.
But you never ever, no you never ever,
No you never ever, no you never ever,
I know that you know that
No you never ever, ever, ever,
Oh let me throw my love,
Throw my love all around you, yeah.
