(Allen Shamblin/Steve Wariner)
I've got everything that a man could want
Expensive toys that lots of hard work bought
I just had to have what was shiny and new
I fed the habit and neglected you
Then one night a light came on
I reached for you and you were almost gone

CHORUS:
If I don't have you I don't have anything
Even the gold is worthless in my ring
It's kind of funny the things we think we must possess
A ton of money can't even buy an ounce of happiness
If you're not with me to share what tomorrow brings
Then I really don't have anything

And if I'm not too late if you still want me to
I'll prove I've changed I'll make it up to you
When all these things I have are either broken or gone
My love for you will still be standing strong
Now I'm a different man
It took awhile but I finally understand

REPEAT CHORUS
