BONNIE RAITT


One Part Be My Lover Lyrics

When he looks in her eyes, he sees only the truth
Tellin’ him he’s been livin’ a lie
Over and over like a line in a song
About all the love he let pass him by

To her he might be the man of her dreams
To find where she’s been hiding inside
Broken or battered, it don’t really matter
Her heart’s like a wave and he’s the tide

They’re not forever, just for today
One part be my lover, one part go away

He’s like a boxer who had to retire
After winning but killing a man
All of the moves and none of the courage
Afraid to throw a punch that might land

Not too much later, she can’t meet his glance
You see her start pulling away
Over and over, like fire and ice
One is color, one is gray

They’re not forever, just for today
One part be my lover, one part go away

If you know how, why don’t you say ‘em a prayer?
They’re gonna need all the help they can get
They remember too much about what went wrong
It might be they should learn to forget

Forget themselves in each other
And leave what belongs in the past
Carry their hearts like a newborn child
‘Cause its only the moment that lasts

They’re not forever, just day to day
One part be my lover, one part go away

One part go away
Oh, be my lover
