Lyrics

I may not always love you

But long as there are stars above you

You never need to doubt it

I’ll make you so sure about it

God only knows what I’d be without you

If you should ever leave me

Though life would still go on believe me

The world could show nothing to me

So what good would living do me

God only knows what I’d be without you

God only knows what I’d be without you

If you should ever leave me

Well life would still go on believe me

The world could show nothing to me

So what good would living do me

God only knows what I’d be without you

God only knows what I’d be without you

God only knows

God only knows what I’d be without you

God only knows what I’d be without you

God only knows

God only knows what I’d be without you

God only knows what I’d be without you

God only knows

God only knows what I’d be without you

God only knows what I’d be without you

God only knows

God only knows what I’d be without you

God only knows what I’d be without you

God only knows

God only knows what I’d be without you

God only knows what I’d be without you

God only knows

God only knows what I’d be without you
