lyrics

Never gonna change the way I feel
even when the darkness on my mind.
And I’ll keep prayin’ just to forgive again,
and remember there was love all the time.

And in my life I’ve seen a family
with broken hearts and they don’t know what to do.
Well we got one life to live before we’re moving on.
And I won’t live my life without telling you...

That I won’t go, ‘cause I need your love.
Had to lose my way before I reached the truth.
No I won’t go, ‘cause you have my love,
and life just ain’t the same without loving you.
And I love you...

Always thought I’d hide in my own life,
and never have the strength to find the truth
that we could live and learn to love again.
And if I can’t love myself, I can’t love you.

The road ahead ain’t easy for me now,
to thank you and forgive each of ourselves.
But I’m proud of the life I know I will have lived with you
when I tear down all my walls and tell you now...

That I won’t go, ‘cause I need your love.
Had to lose my way before I reached the truth.
No I won’t go, ‘cause you have my love,
and life just ain’t the same without loving you.
And I love you.

And when your faith is gone and you’re down with all the pain,
you gotta look within and believe you’ll find the strength.
Oh hear me now, just let it wash away,
because you are the one to give all my love.

And I won’t go, ‘cause I need your love.
Had to lose my way before I reached the truth.
No I won’t go, ‘cause you have my love,
and life just ain’t the same without loving you.
And I won’t go, ‘cause I need your love.
I had to lose my way before I reached the truth.
No I won’t go, ‘cause you have my love,
and life just ain’t the same, no it’s never gonna be the same without loving you.

No, I won’t go.
