"I Don't Want You To Go" as written by Carolyn Dawn Johnson and Tommy Polk....
Monday mornin' is such a rush
Here it is again sneakin' up on us
Uh-huh-huh yeah
This is the part you know I don't like
We say goodbye and then we kiss goodnight
Uh-huh-huh yeah
I know it's one o'clock
And we said you'd be gone by ten
So much for those eight hours
I swore that I'd get in

I know I should get some sleep
I'm at the beginnin' of another long week
But I don't want you to go
No I don't want you to go
I guess another minute wouldn't do no harm
Why not spend it in each other's arms
Cause I don't want you to go
No I don't want you to go

We always say just one more kiss
But it always seems to never end like this
Uh-huh-huh yeah
A few dozen then a couple more
Before we know it it's after four
Uh-huh-huh yeah
I know tomorrow my best friend will be my coffee cup
Cause here we go again
Watchin' the sun come up

Yeah, I know I should get some sleep
I'm at the beginnin' of another long week
But I don't want you to go
No I don't want you to go
I guess another minute wouldn't do no harm
Why not spend it in each other's arms
Cause I don't want you to go
No baby, I don't want you to go

Hey
I know tomorrow my best friend will be my coffee cup
Cause here we go again
Watching the sun come up yeah

I know I should get some sleep
I'm at the beginnin of another long week
But I don't want you to go
No I don't want you to go
I guess another minute wouldn't do no harm
Why not spend it in each other's arms

Yeah I don't want you to go
I don't want you to go
I don't want you to go
I don't want you to go
I don't want you to go
I don't want you to go
I don't want you to go
I don't want you to go
I don't want you to go
I don't want you to go

    General CommentI've liked this song since it first came out, but when it played today from my playlist, it seemed to make more sense...I've been seeing this guy lately, and it seems we have the same problem as she does. I don't think I can make it though another 8 hour work day with no sleep. But I'm loving it ! ;)

    General CommentI laugh everytime I hear this song, because it is my life! I don' know how many times my boyfriend and I have meant to be gone by 10 but there we go again watching the sun come up. I get no sleep, But it is all worth it for that quality time with my man.
