Lyrics
Baby, I can't live to love you
As long as I want to
Life isn't long enough, baby
But I can love you as long as I live

Baby, I can't buy you diamonds and things
Like I want to
But I can promise you, baby
I'm going to want you as long as I live

Well, I never cared but now I'm scared
That I won't live long enough
That's why I wear my rubbers when it rains
And eat an apple every day and see the doctor anyway

What if I can't live to love you
As long as I want to?
Life isn't long enough, baby
But I can love you as long as I live

Baby, I can't live to love you
As long as I want to
Life isn't long enough, baby
But I can love you as long as I live

Baby, I can't buy you diamonds and things
Like I want to
But I can promise you, baby
I'm going to want you as long as I live

Well, you know, I never cared but now I'm scared
I won't live long enough
That's why I wear my rubbers when it rains
And eat an apple every day and see the doctor anyway

What if I can't live to love you
As long as I want to?
Long as I promise you, baby
I'm going to want to as long as I live
As long as I promise you

Well,
