Lisa Stansfield – Whenever You're Gone lyrics

(l. Stansfield/i. Devaney/a. Morris)

I can't go any further now, only if you come with me
Only if you can take my hand and hold me in your arms
If you come and look into my eyes, i'ii see it all more clearly
All of the tears you've seen my cry
You'll take them all away

If you come and open up my eyes and hold me
Take me away and ease my mind
Just come and hold me tight

Whenever you're gone it's lonely
Whenever you're gone I can't face the light of day
It's too many times I've been on my own
With a burning in my heart
Whenever you're gone

Look at the face you see before you, can't you be open to me
Can't you believe what we have, don't throw it away
Believe in me now don't criticize, it's only the beginning
Can't you believe these desperate eyes, believe in what we say

If you came and open up me eyes and hold me
Then I can open up my mind, and I will hold you tight


I miss you so, and friends don't understand when I don't want to speak
When you're gone I feel so alone
And I can't sleep for crying, and deep inside I feel like dying
