Alan Jackson – Had It Not Been You lyrics

The girl’s wouldn’t look anything like they do

Can’t imagine my life without dresses and shoes

Or never taking a sunset from a front porch swing

Or make any sense of the pleasure love brings

I’d been alone for sure

Had it not been you

I wouldn’t reach for your arms

When my dreams don’t come true

Never sit holding hands

On a crowded church pew

I wouldn’t smile when my fingers run through your hair

Or laugh when we race to the top of the stairs

I’d get old for sure

Had it not been you

You know there are times

That I can’t wait to pick up the phone

When you’re callin’

And the three little voices

That always chime in right along

When we’re talkin’

Oh I never would see through

Eyes of truth

And my heart

Would have overlooked

A view that some just talk of

And never find

In a lifetime

It’s hard to describe

In just words how I feel

When I hold stand beside you

But I make it known

It’s just time that I kill

When I’m alone and without you

I will love all through the night

If you love me

As long as I wake up each morning

I’ll know I’m the only one around

For a lifetime

I’d never have taken in a sunset from the front porch swing

Or make any sense of the pleasure love brings

I’d been alone for sure

Had it not been you
