Verse
How do I get through one night without you
If I had to live with out you,
What kind of life would that be
Oh I, need you in my arms, need you to hold.
Your my world, my heart, my soul

Bridge
If you ever leave
Baby you would take away everything
good in my life
And tell me now

Chorus
How do I live with out you
I want to know
How do I breathe with out you
If you ever go
How do I ever, ever survive
How do I, How do I, oh how do I live

Verse
Without you Thered be no sun in the sun in my sky
There would be no love in my life
Thered be no world left for me
And I, Baby I dont know what I would do
Id be lost if I lost you

Bridge
If you ever leave
Baby you would take away everything
real in my life
And tell me now

Chorus
How do I live with out you
I want to know
How do I breathe with out you
If you ever go
How do I ever, ever survive
How do I, How do I, oh how do I live

Bridge
Please Tell me Baby
How do I go on
If you ever leave
Baby you would take away everything
need you with me
Baby dont you know that your everything
Good in my life
And tell my now

Chorus
How do I live with out you
I want to know
How do I breathe with out you
If you ever go
How do I ever, ever survive
How do I, How do I, oh how do I live
How do I live with out you
How do I live with out you Baby
ahhhhh
How do I live

    General CommentI don't think that's what it means. I think this song is about loving someone unconditionally. Really just loving someone like hell. Loving them enough that you are nothing without them. Knowing that if they left or if they died you would have nothing left, because it would take away everything good in life. All of the happiness you hold is because of that person. It's a song about true love and not wanting to be without someone. Because imagining your life without them seems damn near impossible. Atleast that's what I got from it. :)

    General Commentwoowoo, I totally agree!! I think this is, hands down, one of he greatest songs of all time... and it only has 2 (now 3) comments?? CRAZY!! I can't think of a song more beautifully written than this. When I first found out my boyfriend didn't really love me (and loved someone else) I listened to this over and over, and cried non-stop...

    General CommentI can't believe there are only 4 other posts. This is the best song ever. Leann is truely amazing. It is describing how one's soulmate is everything and, my heart my soul.

    If one is blessed enough to find that "soulmate," this song would explain the emptiness that he or she would feel without that love in their live.

    General CommentThis is a beautiful song,about being deeply in love with someone but knowing deep down that one day they will leave you.She is simply asking 'what will I do when you leave me?'

    General CommentMy godfather(Vickie) sang this at his partner's(Rodney) funeral. They met when they were 14 and Rodney was 64 when he died last year. They were my ultimate definition of love and this song always makes me cry now.
    R.I.P. Rodney.
