Lyrics “You Don’t Have To Go To Be Gone”

From the self-titled album by Dave Adkins
Songwriters: David Adkins, Paula Breedlove & Mark “Brink” Brinkman

VERSE 1:

WE’RE LIVING IN THE SAME TWO STORY HOUSE…SIDE BY SIDE

WE’RE SLEEPING IN THE SAME FOUR POSTER BED…NIGHT AFTER NIGHT

EACH MORNING OVER COFFEE…YOU’RE RIGHT ACROSS FROM ME

BUT YOU’RE AT LEAST A MILLION MILES FROM WHERE WE USED TO BE

CHORUS:

YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO – TO BE GONE

YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO – TO LEAVE ME LONELY ALL NIGHT LONG

YOU DON’T HAVE TO SAY GOODBYE –

TO BREAK MY HEART AND MAKE ME CRY

YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO – TO BE GONE.

VERSE 2:

OUR LOVE BEGAN LIKE A GOOD OLD COUNTRY SONG…RHYME BY RHYME

BUT SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY IT ALL WENT WRONG…LINE AFTER LINE

I CAN’T KEEP THIS LOVE ALIVE ALL BY MYSELF

IF YOU STAY OR IF YOU GO..YOUR HEART’S ALREADY LEFT.

CHORUS:

YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO – TO BE GONE

YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO – TO LEAVE ME LONELY ALL NIGHT LONG

YOU DON’T HAVE TO SAY GOODBYE –

TO BREAK MY HEART AND MAKE ME CRY

YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO – TO BE GONE

CHORUS:

YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO – TO BE GONE

YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO – TO LEAVE ME LONELY ALL NIGHT LONG

YOU DON’T HAVE TO SAY GOODBYE –

TO BREAK MY HEART AND MAKE ME CRY

YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO – TO BE GONE
