Lyrics

Without You

Written By: Martin Beal

Without You

There was a time I thought I loved you
Now I’m not sure that’s true
I don’t think I know what love is
One thing I know for sure

I can see the world again (without you)
My eyes are open wide again (without you)
I know I’ll try and love again (without you)
My days are bright again (without you)
