"I'll never make it"

Keith Boyle


The sky is fill with dark clouds,The wind is blowing strong.
I can tell tonight is not the same,'Cause, baby, it looks like rain.
When I look into your eyes,It's very plain to see, oh,
That, girl, while I'm loving you,You're not even thinking of me.

Lightning flashes and thunder sounds,I reach for you, but you're not around.
Baby, baby, come back to me 'cause I'll never make it without you.

So listen, little girl, to what I say,I need you today.
If you don't come back, it won't be the same,
'Cause, baby, it looks like rain.

Lightning flashes and thunder sounds,I reach for you, but you're not around.
Baby, baby, come back to me 'cause I'll never make it without you.

The sky is fill with dark clouds,The wind is blowing strong.
I can tell tonight is not the same,'Cause, baby, it looks like rain.

When I look into your eyes,It's very plain to see, oh,
That, girl, while I'm loving you,You're not even thinking of me.

Lightning flashes and thunder sounds,I reach for you, but you're not around.
Baby, baby, come back to me 'cause I'll never make it without you.
No, girl, I'll never make it without you. Once more,
I'll never make it without you.


(***note: Keith Boyle was my friend and the lead guitar player in my first band, SNAFU, in the early 1970's.
He died tradgically in a car accident shortly after graduating from high school. Since I'm the only other person who ever played it,
I'm placing his song here to live in cyberspace, in the hope that he will never be truly forgotten.***)
