There is an aching in my heart
}From the bed I can't get used to
It's these li'l hours in the dark I dread
As I spend my first night alone without you

Honey half of me has gone away
Gone the love I learned to cling to
Tomorrow I'll have to find another way
To live the rest of my life alone without you

You taught me how to live
How to be myself
And how to give
Oh but now it's you
Who's giving up on givin'

You lost the thing no one could teach
Changed it and now you're out of reach
And my life tonight just don't seem worth livin'
No... no...

I've been sittin' learnin' how to read
'Cause back at school I never liked to
It's just one of those little things I'm gonna need
As I put my life together baby without you
