Johnny Thunders – I Only Wrote This Song For You lyrics

I only wrote this song for you
It's about the way I feel

Oh you, you made my life
Oh you, you made everything alright
You took away my tears
You gave me new ideas
And now you're gone

Don't go away

Oh I, I was so fine
Remember when we drank wine
I'm sorry we never had a home
But baby I feel so alone
And don't go

Don't go away

Now there's so much pain
Without you
Now life doesn't seem
The way it used to
I'm so sorry
Let me make it up to you
I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry

I wanna spend my life with you
I don't want nobody else but you
Can you see that I love you?
Don't go

Don't go away

Don't go
Don't go away

Don't go
Don't go away
