When Love Won't Let You Leave - Bobby Tinsley

it's 3 o'clock in the morning and he's still awake
flipping through old photographs trying not to break
its been almost a year now since the last time he saw her face
and most nights he gets through the fight but now's not the case
and he tries, how hard he tries to erase her from his mind
when he would give anything, he'd give anything

when love won't let you leave
it's like sleeping with the lights left on
you're laying awake all night praying
the strength you need to move on
when love won't let you leave
it's a feeling that you can't describe
knowing that you lost the one thing
that ever made sense in your life
when love won't let you leave

the funny thing about life is it takes you by surprise
one day you're on the bottom the next on in the sky
so when she told him she was coming home it blew his mind
this time he swore he wouldn't lose her, he would get it right
and so he tried, how hard he tried to keep her satisfied
when he would give anything, he'd give anything

when love won't let you leave
it's like moving back to where you grew up
even though you've been away so long
everything's familiar enough
when love won't let you leave
you reinvent the will somehow
you change what you know needs changing
you can get it right the second time around
when love won't let you leave

he screams jesus can you hear me
these years went by too fast
so can you wait before you take her
she's my only love, she's all that i have

it's 3 o'clock in the morning and he's still awake
and kneeling there stroking her hair and trying not to break
the doctor says it won't be long now it's been a difficult climb
he brings the kids in from the waiting room to kiss mama one more time
and he tries, how hard he tries to accept the fact she's dying

when love won't let you leave
the doctor's never right he's wrong
you stay the whole night by her
just waiting on a miracle to come
when love won't let you leave
and he watched her as she closes her eyes
begging god please don't take her
please let me have one more night
with her my wife
when love won't let you leave
when love won't let you leave (yeah yeah)
when love won't let you leave
