Aiken, Clay - Without You Lyrics




[originally performed by Badfinger]

Well, I can't forget this evening
And your face when you were leaving
But I guess that's just the way the story goes
You always smile, but in your eyes your sorrow shows
Yes, it shows

Well, I can't forget tomorrow
When I think of all my sorrow
I had you there, but then I let you go
And now it's only fair that I should let you know
What you should know

[CHORUS:]
I can't live, if living is without you
I can't live, I can't give anymore
I can't live, if living is without you
I can't live, I can't give anymore

Well, I can't forget this evening
And your face when you were leaving
But I guess that's just the way the story goes
You always smile, but in your eyes your sorrow shows
Yes, it shows

[guitar solo]

[CHORUS 3x]

I can't live, if living is without you

    I like Clay's voice but wow nothing compared to Nilsson's version. No one should sing this except Nilsson, probably.

    Oh, I can't forget this evening
    And your face when you were leaving
    But I guess that's just the way the story goes
    You always smile, but in your eyes your sorrow shows
    Yes, it shows

    Oh, I can't forget tomorrow
    When I think of all my sorrow
    I had you there, but then I let you go
    And now it's only fair that I should let you know
    What you should know

    I can't live, if living is without you
    I can't live, I can't give anymore


    I can't live, if living is without you
    I can't live, I can't give anymore

    Oh, I can't forget this evening
    And your face as you were leaving
    But I guess that's just the way the story goes
    You always smile, but in your eyes your sorrow shows
    Yes, it shows

    I can't live, oh, if living is without you
    I can't live, I can't give anymore
    I can't live, if living is without you
    I can't live, I can't give anymore
    I can't live, if living is without you
    I can't live, I can't give anymore, oh, oh, oh, oh!

    I can't, I can't live, if living is without you
    I can't live... (fade)

  17. Rebecca Gatling

    Not sure, but don't think Harry ever sang it live. Nailed it!

  18. carole vanlandingham

    I LOVE CLAY!!!!! ALWAYS HAVE!!!!

  19. Daisylady KLG

    2/26/19... 1st of all, Clay, as a vocalist together with this song... almost as perfect as the original.
    Harry has a place in my heart that no one can take. Sorry Clay. You are, though, a definite 2nd. Pure magic. But then again every single thing you touch becomes magical.
    Ok. Now for my 2nd point on Clay. You need to get together with some legendary songwriters... or more to the point, some legendary songwriters need to get together with you to create some brand new magic that can encompass the entire universe. Truly a gifted talent who is both confident and humble. Thankful

  20. Jj Lp

    you have one most beautiful voice.

  21. Sheppie Het

    One of the top 5 best singers in the world

  42. Carrie Jackson

    He is perfection

  43. Jeky Ceniago

    perfect vocal

  44. Mark Miller

    One of the best voices on the planet!! Love ya, son!!!

  45. Reinaveth

    It's sad how he hasn't been more successful, but I think that's due to the fact that his songs aren't pop-style. Pretty much, these days, if you're not pop, rock, or rap, you aren't gonna make it. I wish he had been more encouraged to sing pop because I think he could have rocked it. He's got the looks, the voice, and the stage presence. Absolutely beautiful . :/

    Jeff Munsell

    ...and a baby with his best ' girl ' friend . He's workin' on bein

    Jeff Munsell

    ...and a baby with his best ' girl ' friend . He's workin' on bein

  46. Lois Scheminant

    Clay is blessed with a wonderful voice, personality and an intelligent caring human being. His sexual preference is his own privacy and has nothing to do with his greatness. Stay blessed Clay

  47. Marty Lau

    That last note at 3:00!!! Who can do that?

  48. tirken eowin

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hat1Hc9SNwE Mariah Carey's version.... he can't hold a candle to that

  49. LORD HOUGUN PRINCE OF HOUSE INGRAM

    I love him
    omg

  50. J.R. Lobinsky

    My favorite version of that song! Clay Aiken nailed it!

  51. Traducciones Blue Moondust

    Hilarous I want to be the microphone

  52. ShyerLady

    I like the bangs. Its hot.

  53. William Stonehocker

    Clay and Mariah have awesome voices.

  54. KungFu Panda

    Ah damn....Man...I love this guy...I CAN'T BELIEVE HE LOST TO REUBEN IN AMERICAN IDOL SEASON 2 FINALE

    the obvious guy

    if he would have sang that song he would have won

    Budder Kupp

    Theresa Conner Clay should have won with Bridge Over Troubled Water. The finale was fixed. I tried voting for Clay all night as did all of my friends and relatives. Not one of our votes went through. Then I called Reuben's line just to see if his phone line was working and my vote went right through. It was definitely fixed for Reuben to win!! The producers knew that Clay would do well; because he was the most popular singer on the show. So, they made Reuben win so they could promote 2 acts instead of just one.

    Paulette Schiowitz

    They knew he was gay and they wanted the next Luther andross

  55. Albert Strickland

    Clay is the male version of Celine Dion... The vocal range of both these peformers is off the chart...

  56. Donna Chucka

    Love,love, love him

  57. Andes Tama

    2017 (y)

    Clay gives a terrific version of this song, I believe he does Harry Nilsson justice.

    Wow, Clay's version of this song just got a shout out on Twitter  from half way round the world by kpop idol Chansung from the Korean group 2pm.  Makes me proud of my home state American Idol.  Wonder what Chansung would think about Clay's switch from music to politics?

    Rae S

    Красивый голос у Айкена?! Странно что в мире его мало знают. Я вот вчера впервые услышала, где прячутся такие таланты. Получается через любимого Адама и нашла.

  92. Soares Felipe

    yeah, RIGHT...

  93. Aisha AlKhatib
