Where Would I Be (Rawlins Cross) video

All I want to do is talk to you,
And get a line of reference
on the state of our affair.
Wake up to an empty room,
The silence draws me in
and plays with my head.

Paint a portrait of a poor boy,
In a gilded palace of loneliness,
You get a pretty fair picture
of your lover man.
Woman, he's in an awful mess.

And where would I be without
your lovin' arms around to hold me close?
Nothing'll take the place of time
with you when you're so far away.
Where would I be without your
laughing eyes a-lookin' back at me?
Nothing'll take the place of how I feel
when you come back to stay.

I know you get the same feeling,
All you really need's a little company;
Telephones and a letter make you feel better,
But nothing like the touch of you on me.

And where would I be without
your lovin' arms around to hold me close?
Nothing'll take the place of time
with you when you're so far away.
Where would I be without your
laughing eyes a-lookin' back at me?
Nothing'll take the place of how I feel
when you come back to stay.

And where would I be without
your lovin' arms around to hold me close?
Nothing'll take the place of time
with you when you're so far away.
Where would I be without your
laughing eyes a-lookin' back at me?
Nothing'll take the place of how I feel
when you come back to stay.

All I want to do is talk to you,
Get a line of reference on
the state of our affair.
Telephones and a letter make you
feel a little better,
But nothing like the
touch of your hair.

And where would I be without
your lovin' arms around to hold me close?
Nothing'll take the place of time
with you when you're so far away.
Where would I be without your
laughing eyes a-lookin' back at me?
Nothing'll take the place of how I feel
when you come back to stay.
