One Part Be My Lover Lyrics

Artist: Bonnie Raitt
Album: Luck Of The Draw

When he looks in her eyes
He sees only the truth
Telling him he's been living 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 really don't matter
Her heart's like a wave and he's the tide.

They're not forever, they're 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
He's got 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 grey.

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

So 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 it's only the moment that lasts.

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