“I Have Nothing” by Whitney Houston Lyrics

Share my life
Take me for what I am
‘Cause I’ll never change
All my colors for you

Take my love
I’ll never ask for too much
Just all that you are
And everything that you do

I don’t really need to look
Very much further
I don’t wanna have to go
Where you don’t follow
I will hold it back again
This passion inside
Can’t run from myself
There’s nowhere to hide

Don’t make me close one more door
I don’t wanna hurt anymore
Stay in my arms if you dare
Or must I imagine you there
Don’t walk away from me
I have nothing, nothing, nothing
If I don’t have you, you, you, you, you, you

You see through
Right to the heart of me
You break down my walls
With the strength of your love, mm

I never knew
Love like I’ve known it with you
Will a memory survive
One I can hold on to?

I don’t really need to look
Very much further
I don’t wanna have to go
Where you don’t follow
I will hold it back again
This passion inside
I can’t run from myself
There’s nowhere to hide
Your love I’ll remember forever

Don’t make me close one more door
I don’t want to hurt anymore
Stay in my arms if you dare
Or must I imagine you there
Don’t walk away from me
I have nothing, nothing, nothing

Don’t make me close one more door
I don’t wanna hurt anymore
Stay in my arms if you dare
Or must I imagine you there
Don’t walk away from me
No, don’t walk away from me
Don’t you dare walk away from me
I have nothing, nothing, nothing
If I don’t have you, you
If I don’t have you, oh, oh
