                             MY WORLD WITHOUT YOU

                                Nothing I say
                                and nothing I do
                                can make me happy
                                in a world without you.

                                I have so many loved ones
                                I don't have to be alone
                                but all that I crave
                                is your sweet voice on the phone.

                                Before I dial your number
                                I say a prayer:
                                Please God, I beg
                                let him still be there.

                                All that I ask for
                                is to listen to you speak
                                but I can barely hear you
                                because your voice is so weak.

                                I'll call you tomorrow
                                I hear you say,
                               (No long distance calls from the hospital)
                               Oh my God, you are so far away!

                               When I needed someone to turn to
                               you were always the one
                               and you're still doing it because
                               before you hang up the phone
                                       you say
                               "I love you honeybun."
                                      I'm afraid of the day
                               there'll be nothing more to say
                                        and nothing more to do
                               I must learn to go on living
                                        in my world without you.
