I Can Make It Through The Days (But Oh Those Lonely Nights)

Ray Charles

Girl, I'm so lonesome tonight
I was just lyin' here wonderin' where you are
And what you're doin'
And Lord knows the thing that worries me the most

Is who yer don' it with
That's why, if you don't mind,
I'd like to sing these words to ya, ya see
I've got new books to read

But they ain't what I need
And this picture of you
Just won't do, no, no, baby
And the postcards you send would never (never) mend

The pain in my heart when we're apart
Girl I can make it through the day
But oh, please help me through the lonely nites
When I'm on my job It's not too hard

But when I go home
And I'm all alone (and I'm by myself babe you heard me)
You know you're my crutch I need you're sweet touch
Then it gets the night time again Lord when will it end

I'll make it through the day say, but oh
You don't know nothin' about the lonely nites
Well now night go away please hurry up day
'Cause my night lite burns and I toss and turn

Tell me what would I see if I turned on TV
I don't know what to do, Lord knows, I need me some you
I can make it through the day
Please help me through the lonely night
