Track Lyrics

VERSE 1
THE ROOM HAS SUDDENLY GROWN COLD
AND OUTSIDE IN THE STREET IT'S RAINING
YOU PACKED YOUR BAGS, SAID GOODBYE
(OOH, OOH, OOH)
YOU TOOK MY HEART WITHOUT EXPLAINING

BRIDGE 1
HOW COULD YOU GO, HOW COULD YOU GO
(OOH, OOH, OOH)
WE HAD A LOVE MOST PEOPLE NEVER KNOW
(OOH, OOH, OOH)
STOP, HUH! BEFORE YOU BREAK MY HEART


CHORUS
DON'T TAKE AWAY THE LOVE I BELIEVE IN
DON'T TAKE AWAY
LIFE WOULD HAVE NO MEANING
DON'T TAKE AWAY THE LOVE YOU'VE BEEN GIVING
DON'T TAKE AWAY MY REASON FOR LIVING
IF I COULD MAKE YOU SEE
ONLY YOU CAN FEEL THE NEED IN ME
DON'T TAKE AWAY, DON'T TAKE AWAY
(OOH, OOH, OOH)
MY REASON FOR LIVING

VERSE 2
THIS ROOM IS FULL OF MEMORIES
AND SHADOWS OF THE PAST REMIND ME
OF ALL THE LOVE I GAVE IN VAIN
(OOH, OOH, OOH)
AND ALL THE HURT I FEEL INSIDE ME
BRIDGE 2
I WANT YOU BACK, I WANT YOU BACK
(OOH, OOH, OOH)
WE HAD A LOVE MOST PEOPLE NEVER KNOW
(OOH, OOH, OOH)
STOP, HUH! BEFORE YOU BREAK MY HEART


CHORUS
DON'T TAKE AWAY THE LOVE I BELIEVE IN
DON'T TAKE AWAY
LIFE WOULD HAVE NO MEANING
DON'T TAKE AWAY THE LOVE YOU'VE BEEN GIVING
DON'T TAKE AWAY MY REASON FOR LIVING
IF I COULD MAKE YOU SEE
ONLY YOU CAN FEEL THE NEED IN ME
DON'T TAKE AWAY, DON'T TAKE AWAY
(OOH, OOH, OOH)
MY REASON FOR LIVING


MIDDLE 8
OOH, OOH, OOH
DON'T TAKE AWAY THE LOVE
DON'T TAKE AWAY THE LOVE
OOH, OOH, OOH
DON'T TAKE AWAY THE LOVE
DON'T TAKE AWAY THE LOVE


BRIDGE 3
WE HAD A LOVE MOST PEOPLE NEVER KNOW
(OOH, OOH, OOH)
STOP, HUH! BEFORE YOU BREAK MY HEART
DON'T TAKE AWAY, DON'T TAKE AWAY
(OOH, OOH, OOH)
MY REASON FOR LIVING


CHORUS
DON'T TAKE AWAY THE LOVE I BELIEVE IN
DON'T TAKE AWAY
LIFE WOULD HAVE NO MEANING
DON'T TAKE AWAY THE LOVE YOU'VE BEEN GIVING
DON'T TAKE AWAY MY REASON FOR LIVING
IF I COULD MAKE YOU SEE
ONLY YOU CAN FEEL THE NEED IN ME
DON'T TAKE AWAY, DON'T TAKE AWAY
(OOH, OOH, OOH)
MY REASON FOR LIVING TO FADE
