STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN LYRICS

“Life Without You”

 

Well hello baby, Tell me, How have you been?
We all have missed you, And the way you grin
The day is necessary, Every now and then
For souls to move on, Given life back againFly on, Fly on, Fly on my friend
Go on, Go on and live again, Love again
Cause day after day, Night after night
Sittin’ here singin’, every, every minuteAs the years go passin’ by, by, by, by
A long look in the mirror, We come face to face
Wishin’ our love we took for granted
A love we had yesterday, Cause Life Without YouAll the love, you’ve passed our way
Angels have waited, for so long
Now they have their way
Take your place….
