There’s no way I could make it without you
There’s no way that I’d even try
If I had to survive without you in my life
I know I wouldn’t last a day, oh baby, there’s no way

It means so much to me whenever I see that ‘wanting me’ look in your eyes
I don’t know how I could do without holding you close every night
I’ve waited so long just to have you to hold
Now that I’ve got you, I’ll never let go
