Poco - If It Wasn't For You Lyrics




It's hard to see myself out there alone
People starin' 'cause I got no home
Nowhere to lay my head, so I just walk on
Searchin' for somethin', daylight 'til dawn

When I had taken about all I could take,
Oh no, where's my life goin'
Livin' blindly to the difference you'd make
Your love was tender but strong,
You were there all along

[Chorus:]
If it wasn't for you - there'd be no one to make me try
If it wasn't for you - I'd just stand here and cry
If it wasn't for you - who would care if I lived or died
If it wasn't for you, now I know I'll get through

I don't know how it got to be this way

The hope of life just seemed to slip away
Can I find the strength to face another day
I can't pretend now, want it to end now

When I had taken about all I could take,
Oh no, where's my life goin'
Livin' blindly to the difference you'd make
Your love was tender but strong, you were there all along

[Chorus]

If it wasn't for you - who could I turn to
If it wasn't for you
If it wasn't for you - I'd feel my heart break in two
If it wasn't for you - yeah, what would I do

    Why hasn't Poco been inducted in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame?? I know they've been inducted into Colorado's....

    George Sawtooth

    Because the Hall of Fame is a joke. They can have their Run DMC.

  15. HoopUte

    Such a great lyric. I can't seem to locate sheet music for it, which is too bad because I'd like to use it in the church band. I like these subtly spiritual tunes.

  19. peepsk771

    Love this..haven't heard it in years!! :)

  20. Loveen Beck

    this song is one of the most powerful Poco has done. Love Poco-always have. This song reminds me of a spiritual path-getting sober and turning to the only thing I know that could keep me sober.

  21. Deb Alexander

    This is my song to my beau about our love ... It isn't too dramatic to credit Darin Scott Thompson with saving my life with his unfailing, valiant, true love for me. He says he prayed for a woman with a heart of gold & I appeared ... I say God blessed me with an angel when he came into my life. This is our song. Truly. Even to the point we have both been homeless, slept in the street ... But we have never been lost to God.

  22. tony delfrano

    This is a great song!

  23. Ross

    I hate sad song that makes me cry like a moron as if someone punches my heart until it became blue black. Sigh……! Still I'm stupid enough to listen to it over and over again :((

    HoopUte

    It's not really a sad song. It's all about redemption. That's a good thing.

  24. peepsk771

    One of my all time favorite POCO songs...I can listen over and over....

  25. Zia Rahman
