Take me, take my letters, take my photos, take the sun
You can take my heart, cause I ain't gonna need it on the run
I been trying to work it out but my words fall right apart
Baby, I'll leave oh don't you know I can't deal with the hurt any more
Baby don't leave

Baby don't you know I can't live without your love (No I can't sleep)
Baby don't you know I can't live without your love (I can't eat)
Baby don't you know I can't live without your love (I can't breath)
Baby don't you know I'm gonna live without your love

Autumn, autumn's coming round
And summer's not the same
It's like winter without your smile
I spent some time just thinking to myself
I picked up one of your photos and I put it right back on the shelf
Naw I can't eat

Baby don't you know I can't live without your love (no no no, I can't breath)
Baby don't you know I can't live without your love (oh no, I can't eat)
Baby don't you know I can't live without your love (oh no, I can't breath)
Baby don't you know I can't live without your love

I can't be a day without your smile
You're the one for me but all the while
I just think that we should give all our love
Give love, love, love, love, love
I can't be a day without your smile
You're the one for me but all the while
I just think that we should give all our love
Give love, love, love, love, love

Baby don't you know I can't live without your love (No no no, I can't sleep)
Baby don't you know I can't live without your love (Hey now, I can't eat)
Baby don't you know I can't live without your love (Babe, I can't sleep)
Baby don't you know I'm gonna live without your love (Baby baby)

Baby baby (I can't eat)
Baby baby (I cannot live)
Baby baby
Baby baby (I cannot eat)
Baby baby
Baby baby (I cannot)
Baby baby (Baby don't you know you)
Baby baby

They say love is patient, love is kind
Love ain't never did a thing to mine
Love ain't weak, love is so
Love be tellin' my heart don't go
They say love is patient, love is kind
Love ain't never did a thing to mine
Love ain't weak, greater than pride
I can't live without your love

I can't be a day without your smile
You're the one for me but all the while
I just think that we should give all our love
Give love, love, love, love, love
I can't be a day without your smile
You're the one for me but all the while
I just think that we should give all our love
Give love, love, love, love, love

Baby don't you know I can't live without your love
Baby don't you know I can't live without your love
Baby don't you know I can't live without your love
Baby don't you know I can't live without your love
