lyrics

I tried to find a cure for growing old
But I just wound up feeling blue
Heart broken and cold, just an old fool
Now I don't know what I'm to do

Cause the booze, well it just made me sick
And the drugs, yeah the drugs did not help me one bit
But your love, it could heal any aliment
How great life would be with you next to me

I tried to convince myself that I don't need love
That the money and the booze, that they'd be enough
Fast women and drugs, the kind that are cheap
Are all I'd have left to comfort me

Cause the booze, well it just made me sick
And the drugs, yeah the drugs did not help me one bit
But your love, it could heal any aliment
How great life would be with you next to me
With you next to me

And I know there were times when I took it for granted,
That youthful love would always be mine
And now that its gone, and I can't get it back
I still hope that there is something to make me right

Cause the booze, well it just made me sick
And the drugs, well the drugs did not help me one bit
But you love, it could heal even the worst aliment
How great life would be with you next to me
With you next to me
With you next to me
