But for Love

This song is by Eddy Arnold and appears on the album Glory of Love (1969).

(Terry Cashman - Gene Pistilli - T.P. West)

So it's rainin' again
And the wind's up in a roar
I've been swept through the streets
To be washed up at your door.

But you're with him I know
So I'll crawl back later on
Why do I need you so
But for love I'd be gone.

With my back to the wind
I'm wondering what it is about you
That makes it so hard to stay
And harder yet to live without you.

So I'll look all around
But there's nothing's here for me
Like a prisoner I'm bound
But for you I'd be free.

But for you I'd be gone on a jet
Leavin' today for a place in the sun far away.

But the rain still comes down
And the chilly winds keep blowing
Down these cold empty streets
I'm wondering what keeps me going.

So I say to myself
Why do you linger on
And my heart cries to me
But for love I'd be gone.

But for love I'd be gone...
