​I Can't Stand To Leave You

This song is by Lucero and appears on the album Women & Work (2012).

I see your face when I close my eyes
I hear your name when the wind's just right
The setting sun's gone once more
Each night's worse than the night before
Now I can't stand to leave you
I can't take the weight of this world on my own
I don't know what I'll do
I don't think I can make it all alone

They say all will mend with time
That don't mean much to me tonight
Like city streets, your eyes shine
And I'm out here, with the losing kind
Now I can't stand to leave you
I can't take the weight of this world on my own
I don't know what I'll do
I don't think I can make it all alone

And yes, I've felt this kind of pain
A hole straight through my chest
It's always there, never far away
Seems now it's all that's left

Instrumental break/solo

Every song I hear your voice sing
The words are clear. Come back to me
Come back to me my only one
And hold me close. Your work is done.
Now I can't stand to leave you
I can't take the weight of this world on my own
I don't know what I'll do
I don't think I can make it all alone
