Without Love (There Is Nothing)

Lyrics: Danny Small
Music: Danny Small

Recorded on 'Run For The Roses' with Merl Saunders on organ but seemingly never played live. 'Run For The Roses" incorrectly credits it to Clyde McPhatter (thanks to Matt Schofield for spotting this).

I awakened this morning
I was filled with despair
All my dreams turned to ashes
And gone

As I looked at my life
It was [bent] and bad
Nothing at all
Nothing at all

Once I had a sweetheart
That loved only me
There was nothing
That she would not give

I was blind to her goodness
And I could not see
That a life without love
Cannot live

Without love
I had nothing
Without love
I had nothing
Nothing at all

Yes I have conquered the world
But what, what did I have
Without love I had nothing
Nothing at all
Nothing at all
