If It Wasn't For The Nights

I got appointments
work I have to do
keepin' me so busy
all the day through
They're the things
that keep me from
thinkin' of you
Oh baby I miss you so
I know I'm never
gonna make it
Oh I'm so restless
I don't care what I say
and I lose my temper
ten times a day
Still it's even worse
when the night's on it's way
It's bad,
oh so bad

Somehow I'd be doin' alright
If it wasn't for the nights
I'd have courage left to fight
If it wasn't for the nights
How I fear the time when shadows start to fall
sittin' here alone and starin' at the wall
Even I could see a light
If it wasn't for the nights
Somehow I'd be doin' alright
If it wasn't for the nights

No-one to turn to
you know how it is
I was not prepared for
something like this
Now I see them clearly
the things that I miss
oh baby I feel so bad
I know I'm never gonna make it
I got my business
to help me through the day
people I must write to
bills I must pay
but everything's so
different, when night's on it's way
It's bad,
oh so bad

Somehow I'd be doin' alright
If it wasn't for the nights
I'd have courage left to fight
If it wasn't for the nights
How I fear the time when shadows start to fall
sittin' here alone and starin' at the wall
Even I could see a light
If it wasn't for the nights
Somehow I'd be doin' alright
If it wasn't for the nights

If it wasn’t for the nights
If it wasn’t for the nights

Even I could see a light
If it wasn't for the nights
Guess my future would look bright
If it wasn't for the nights

If it wasn’t for the nights
If it wasn’t for the nights

Even I could see a light
If it wasn't for the nights
Guess my future would look bright
If it wasn't for the nights

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
If it wasn’t for the nights I think that I could make it
 
If it wasn’t for the nights I think that I could take it
 
 
 
Even I could see a light I think that I could make it
 
If it wasn’t for the nights I think that I could take it

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 


If it wasn’t for the nights I think that I could make it
 
If it wasn’t for the nights I think that I could take it
 
 
 
Even I could see a light I think that I could make it
 
If it wasn’t for the nights I think that I could take it

If it wasn’t for the nights I think that I could make it
If it wasn’t for the nights I think that I could take it

 
Even I could see a light I I think that I could make it
 
If it wasn’t for the nights I think that I could take it

If it wasn’t for the nights I think that I could make it
If it wasn’t for the nights I think that I could take it

 
Even I could see a light I think that I could make it
