Southern Ballad Lyrics

by Michael Bolton

Sit down darling
Something I need to say
I know it's gonna hurt you
But we can't go on this way
I can't bear the pain I'm going through
I can't feel the tears you cry
But I swear if this means losing you
That a part of me will die

How can I tell you
What this heart of mine would say
When everything I feel for you
Has turned my head away
I never meant to hurt you
Even though I don't know why
But I swear if this means losing you
That a part of me will die

And I could not stop loving you
I couldn't do that if I tried
When I told you all you meant to me
It was true, I never lied
Lord knows you've done everything
To keep me satisfied
But I swear if this means losing you
That a part of me will die

Oh I swear if this means losing you
That a part of me will die
I swear if this means losing you
That a part of me will die
Baby I know if this means losing you
That a part of me will die, oh oh
