Don't Wanna Leave You Now

Don't Wanna Leave You Now

John Hiatt

I woke up a day late and a dollar short
Thank God I was wrapped up in your arms
I don't wanna read the morning news or watch the weather report
I'd rather be grateful for your charms

I done a lotta things baby, oh, that didn't make me proud
Honey, I don't wanna leave you now
Honey, I don't wanna leave you now
Honey, I don't wanna leave you now
Honey, I don't wanna leave you now

Last night you said you looked up to me
Nowhere to hide, that's when I lose control
I kinda think it's like you see right through me
I got no clothes on when you're lookin' into my soul

I left my eardrums beating, oh, with the roaring of the crowd
Honey, I don't wanna leave you now
Honey, I don't wanna leave you now
Honey, I don't wanna leave you now
Honey, I don't wanna leave you now

I know I gotta go out and face the music
Gotta stand up and play
I'm lucky as hell to do what I love
But nothin lasts forever, baby
Not even the song
Though you're the most beautiful one I could ever think of

Honey, I don't wanna leave you now
Honey, I don't wanna leave you now
Honey, I don't wanna leave you now
Honey, I don't wanna leave you now

All this time I've been comin' and goin'
It's like I'm in and out of consciousness
I awaken from dreams sometimes without knowin?
If I'm really awake or just dreamin' this

Then I'm wrapped up in your arms and a tear forms in a cloud
Cryin' 'cause I gotta leave you now
I'm cryin' 'cause I gotta leave you now
I'm cryin' 'cause I gotta leave you now
Baby, I gotta leave you now
Oh, I gotta leave you now

I'm cryin' 'cause I gotta leave you now
Baby, I gotta leave you now, leave you now
I gotta leave you now
