Share my life, take me for what I am
Cause I'll never change all my colours for you
Take my love, I'll never ask for too much
Just all that you are and everything that you do

I don't really need to look very much further
I don't want to have to go where you don't follow
I won't hold it back again, this passion inside
Can't run from myself
There's nowhere to hide

Well, don't make me close one more door
I don't wanna hurt anymore
Stay in my arms if you dare
Or must I imagine you there
Don't walk away from me...
I have nothing, nothing, nothing
If I don't have you, you, you, you, you, you...

You see through, right to the heart of me
You break down my walls with the strength of your love mmmmm...
I never knew love like I've known it with you
Will a memory survive, one I can hold on to

I don't really need to look very much further
I don't want to have to go where you don't follow
I won't hold it back again, this passion inside
I Can't run from myself
There's nowhere to hide
Your love I'll remember, forever

Don't make me close one more door
I don't wanna hurt anymore
Stay in my arms if you dare
Or must I imagine you there
Don't walk away from me...
I have nothing, nothing, nothing...

Well, don't make me close one more door
I don't wanna hurt anymore
Stay in my arms if you dare
Or must I imagine you there
Don't walk away from me no...
Don't walk away from me
Don't you dare walk away from me
I have nothing, nothing, nothing
If I don't have you, you
Ooohhh, ooooh
If I don't have you, oohh...

    This song means, that if she doesn't have the one that she doesn't have anything. He is her everything, there is nothing to live for, if she doesn't have him. This song is beautiful. I love it.

    The song is hauntingly relevant to Whitney and the way she lived her life, the controversies and the dichotomies. In hindsight it's a song asking the love of her life to love all of her life. Her many facets, her influences, the things that make her, her. She already loves completely enough to know that it's all or it's nothing.

    My understanding is that this song was written by Linda Thompson, former girlfriend of Elvis. It was an expression of the feelings she was experiencing from the deterioration of their relationship. I believe that she still loved him when Elvis died as evidenced by the Josh Groban song "To Where You Are" she is said to have written.
