(Can't Live Without Your) Love and Affection

Here she comes, just like an angel
Seems like forever that she's been on my mind
But nothing has changed, she thinks I'm a waste of her time

There she goes, she don't know what she's missing
Can't she see I'll never give up the fight
I'll do all I can till she understands my desire

I've been on the outside lookin' in
Let me into your heart
There's nothing on earth
That should keep up apart

Baby, I can't live without your love and affection
I can't face another night on my own
I'd give up my pride to save me from being alone
'Cause I can't live without your love, your love

So I wait, here for an answer
Wonder if tomorrow will be like yesterday
I'll keep holding on but I can't go on living this way

Baby, I've been on the outside lookin' in
Bring my tears to an end
I realize there's no use for me to pretend
Oh, yeah

I can't live without your love and affection
I can't face another night on my own
I'd give up my pride to save me from being alone
'Cause I can't live without your love

For your love, I'd put my arms around you
For your love, and find the strength to tell you
For your love, that I can't live without your

I can't live without your love and affection
I can't face another night on my own
I'd give up my pride to save me from being alone

Baby, I can't live without your love and affection
I just can't go on this way anymore
As hard as I try, there's one thing that I know for sure
I can't live without your love

There she goes, I can't live without your love, baby
There she goes, I can't live without your love
There she goes, I can't live without your love
