There's a brand new light in my life
Shines after the candle is out at night
It's gotten the best of me
It's got my heart and it won't set it free

I just can't tell you why
If I did, well, it might be a lie

It's a long world we're living in
I've got to have her from beginning to end
It's a long world we're living in
I just can't live without her

Does anybody know how it feels to want her this bad?
So bad you'd give your life away
There's gotta be somebody somewhere
Who needs someone like I need you

I just can't tell you why
If I did, well, it might be a lie

And it's a long world we're living in
I've got to have her from beginning to end
It's a long world we're living in
I just can't live without her
I just can't live without her

And I wait for the day to take her away in vain
And I realize, I'll always feel the same

There's a brand new light in my life
Shines after the candle is out at night
It's gotten the best of me
It's got my heart and it won't set it free, yeah

I just can't tell you why
If I did, well, it might be a lie

It's a long world we're living in
I've got to have her from beginning to end
It's a long world we're living in
I just can't live without her
I just can't live without her

Well, it's a long world we're living in
And I've got to have her from beginning to end
Well, it's a long world we're living in
I just can't live without her

I just can't live without her
No, I, I just can't live without her
[Incomprehensible]
