The Basics – I Could Go On lyrics

I could go on with you by my side
Could get by with you in my life
Would be right if you stay the night

You, you can leave, but you can't decide
Do you go, do you stay, are you leaving something good behind?
If you turn your back now, baby
Don't think you'll be changing your mind

The sun shines on my window
But all I see are clouds
But the sun might shine tomorrow
If you'd made your mind

'Cause I will survive even after you're gone
I may be sad, but I won't be for long
'Cause when I know where you stand, then maybe I can be strong

You, you'll be sure that your mind's made up
When you walk out that door, don't you turn, don't you stop
'Cause I won't be waving, I won't be waving you off

You said you would, now you say you might
Soon you'll say you can't even hold me tight
If you want my love, the time has come to decide

I could go on with you by my side
Could get by with you in my life
Would be right if you stay the night

Yeah, and you, you'll be sure that your mind's made up
When you walk out that door, don't you turn, don't you stop
'Cause I won't be waving, I won't be waving you off

The sun shines on my window
But all I see are clouds
But the sun might shine tomorrow
If you'd made your mind

'Cause I, I will go on
Even after you're gone
I may be sad, but I won't be for long

And you
Why can't you make up your mind?
Can't you be sure you're gonna walk out that door?
I will go on
