Lyrics. Chicago Thought it wouldn't matter If we didn't stay together, And if it was over, Maybe it was for the better. I was thinking I'd be alright, 'til I thought it all through. Now I know that I ain't really living If I have to live without you. I don't want to live without your love, I don't want to face the night alone. I could never make it through my life If I had to make it on my own.
