It's hard to see myself out there alone
People starin' 'cause I got no home
Nowhere to lay my head, so I just walk on
Searchin' for somethin', daylight 'til dawn

When I had taken about all I could take,
Oh no, where's my life goin'
Livin' blindly to the difference you'd make
Your love was tender but strong,
You were there all along

Chorus:
If it wasn't for you - there'd be no one to make me try
If it wasn't for you - I'd just stand here and cry
If it wasn't for you - who would care if I lived or died
If it wasn't for you, now I know I'll get through

I don't know how it got to be this way
The hope of life just seemed to slip away
Can I find the strength to face another day
I can't pretend now, want it to end now

When I had taken about all I could take,
Oh no, where's my life goin'
Livin' blindly to the difference you'd make
Your love was tender but strong, you were there all along

[Chorus:]

(Solo)

If it wasn't for you - who could I turn to
If it wasn't for you
If it wasn't for you - I'd feel my heart break in two
If it wasn't for you - yeah, what would I do
