Don't Wanna Leave You Now
written by John Hiatt

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

I've done a lot of things, baby
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 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 nothing 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 coming and going
It's like I'm in and out of consciousness
I awaken from dreams sometimes without knowing
Am I really awake or am I dreaming this?

Now I'm wrapped up in your arms
And a tear forms in a cloud
Crying 'cause I gotta leave you now
I'm crying 'cause I gotta leave you now
I gotta leave you now
I'm crying 'cause I gotta leave you now
