"If I Can't Have Your Love" as written by Desmond Child, Richie Sambora and Diane Warren....
Oooh

It's hard to remember a time
When I didn't have you
Didn't have nothing but a cold bed to come to at night
That was all I knew
Until there was you

And then you took my world
And turned it all around
I couldn't live without you now

Baby
If I can't have your love
If I can't feel your touch
I got nothin'
Baby
If I can't taste your kiss
Then I don't exist
I got nothin' yeah

No I can't imagine livin' life without you
I can't imagine livin' life without your love

I wake up with you by my side
I can't let go
I can't even bear the thought of you in another man's eyes
I would lose control
I would die

'Cause now you're in my heart
And I can't let you out
I gotta keep you here, somehow

Baby
If I can't have your love
If I can't feel your touch
I've got nothing
Baby
If I can't taste your kiss
Then I don't exist
I got nothing
If I can't be your man
I wouldn't know who I am
I got nothing, I got nothing

(whispered)
No I can't imagine living life without you
I can't imagine living life without your love

(Sung)
'Cause I can't imagine living live without you
Can't imagine living life wiouthout your love

Believe me baby I don't mean to doubt you
But if you ever leave
That would be the end of me
Baby, Baby

If I can't feel your touch I got nothin'
If I can't taste your kiss then I don't exist
Then I got nothin'
I got nothin'

Baby
If I can't be your man
I wouldn't know who I am
I'd be nothing
Baby
If I can't have your love
If I can't feel your touch
I've got nothin' (yeah-h)

No I can't imagine living life without you
No I can't imagine living life without your love

    General CommentExquisitely beautiful song! Richie rivals Jon in the voice department on this one. What a multi-talented group of guys - that's what truly makes Bon Jovi so special!

    General CommentI can't help but feel this was Richie singing to Heather back when they were married. Since they've been divorced, I don't think Richie has ever been the same.

    It is still a beautiful song
