The Carpenters - I won’t last a day without you
Tekst en muziek: Paul Williams en Roger Nichols
(1974)






Day after day, I must face a world of strangers
Where I don’t belong
I’m not that strong
It’s nice to know that there’s someone I can turn to
Who will always care
You’re always there



When there’s no getting over that rainbow
When my smallest of dreams won’t come true
I can take all the madness the world has to give
But I won’t last a day without you



So many times when the city seems to be
Without a friendly face
A lonely place
It’s nice to know that you’ll be there if I need you
And you’ll always smile
It’s all worthwhile



When there’s no getting over that rainbow
When my smallest of dreams won’t come true
I can take all the madness the world has to give
But I won’t last a day without you



Touch me and I end up singing
Trouble seems to up and disappear
You touch me with the love you’re bringing
I can’t really lose when you’re near
When you’re near, my love



If all my friends have forgotten half their promises
They’re not unkind
Just hard to find
One look at you and I know that I could learn
To live without the rest
I’ve found the best



When there’s no getting over that rainbow
When my smallest of dreams won’t come true
I can take all the madness the world has to give
But I won’t last a day without you



When there’s no getting over that rainbow
When my smallest of dreams won’t come true
I can take all the madness the world has to give
But I won’t last a day without you
Won’t last a day without you
Without you
