John Hiatt – On With You lyrics

Twenty years and we're still on the beat
Stretchin' out and goin' for it
I don't know if these ends will ever meet
Thing with love is you can't store it

Even when I was dead inside
You saw somethin' to remind you
Of the man I was tryin' to hide,
The man who needed just to find you

I just wanna go on with you
All the joy and pain and beauty too
Somethin' in your eyes so rare and true
I just wanna go on with you, baby.

That's when you knew I couldn't trust anyone
That's when you knew I couldn't trust myself
You said, "What good is trust with out a smokin' gun?"
If you can't risk betrayal it just sits on a shelf

That's when I knew I was in love with you
That's when the walls started comin' down
That's when I reached out of the darkest blue
And you were there to bring me back around.

I just wanna go on with you
All the joy and pain and beauty too
Somethin' in your eyes so rare and true
I just wanna go on with you, baby
I just wanna go on with you

It's like livin' in a dream
Or Wakin' up in the middle of a scream
And realizin' that you're not alone
Or anyway the boogie man went home

I just wanna go on with you
All the joy and pain and beauty too
Somethin' in your eyes so rare and true
I just wanna go on with you

I just wanna go on
I just wanna go on with you
I just wanna go
I just wanna, I just wanna
Baby
