Without Your Love

I could live a hundred years
or burn my money until it all disappears
I could wish upon a star so high above
I could write another song
or sing you verses until my voice is gone
but I'm alone in this world without your love

bring me fortune, bring me hips
let my name be on every starlet's lips
dress me daily in a pair of new white gloves
print my picture in magazines
sing my praises at all the hipest scenes
but I'm alone in this world without your love

somewhere lost in another time I would scoff and say
I could live without a crutch and love is nothing more
without notice pushing back again the sweetest plum of all
nothing's gained if nothing's lost but what's it all done for

come here babe, very near
whisper softly what I long to hear
let your words fly lightly like a dove
and to you, these words I say
with all the memories of those ugly days
I'm alone in this world without your love

from now on, have no doubt
even when it seems our time's running out
there's a tree that's growing to the land above
if it dies then it will be
a tombstone of our heartfelt history
and alone in this world without your love

somewhere lost in another time I would scoff and say
I could live without a crutch and love is nothing more
without notice pushing back again the sweetest plum of all
nothing's gained if nothing's lost but what's it all done for
