I guess there's no good reason for livin'
But I'll keep on livin' for you, baby
There's nothin' else to do, baby
But spend my life holdin' you and lovin' you, aw

If I ask you more than one million times to forgive me
You'd think of a reason why that you shouldn't make me cry
Walk out and say goodbye away from me, aw, yeah

I'm tired of the bright ideas about leavin' me, aw
When you know you not goin' nowhere but here with me
Here with me

Let me tell you one thing
Stop and think of just how good I've been to you, baby
Please, oh

Not causin' no trouble for you, baby
The story just can't be true, baby
How can I convince you, baby, but just tell you the truth

I'm breathing for you, givin' for you, waitin' for you
Let me tell you what I know
I'm layin' for you, prayin' for you, workin' for you

I don't mind my life I tell you that I'm
Livin' for you, not ashamed I'm givin' for you, givin' for you
Oh, my my

Playin' for you, prayin' for you
Everything I do I, everything I do I still
Do with you, something to do with you
To do with you

That's why I say I keep on playin' for you
