Rodney Crowell – I Couldn't Leave You If I Tried lyrics

The sun is coming up and I'm just going down
Everywhere I look the world keeps turning 'round
Though I said I never would be satisfied
Baby I lied I couldn't leave you if I tried

Sometimes I get lost out on this sad old town
And every bridge I cross just turns me upside down
And every stumbling step I take back to your side
Hurts my pride I couldn't leave you if I tried

Well I could not walk away no matter what I say
I won't be leaving believe it or don't
You're all that I want

Tears may fall but after all is said and done
Darlin' please believe me you're the only one
And I'll admit mistakes I've made me realize
Baby I lied I couldn't leave you if I tried

I won't be leaving you no matter what I do
I'm gonna see it through 'til the end
And do it again

Years may come and friends may go but that's ok
Darlin' you're the only one I need to stay
I know I said I never would be satisified
Baby I lied I couldn't leave you if I tried
I couldn't leave you if I tried
