Alicia Keys If I Ain't Got You Lyrics

Last updated: 06/09/2014 04:11:57 PM

Some people live for the fortune
Some people live just for the fame
Some people live for the power, yeah
Some people live just to play the game
Some people think that the physical things
Define what's within
And I've been there before
But that life's a bore
So full of the superficial

Some people want it all
But I don't want nothing at all
If it ain't you baby
If I ain't got you baby
Some people want diamond rings
Some just want everything
But everything means nothing
If I ain't got you, Yeah

Some people search for a fountain
That promises forever young
Some people need three dozen roses
And that's the only way to prove you love them
Hand me the world on a silver platter
And what good would it be
With no one to share
With no one who truly cares for me

Some people want it all
But I don't want nothing at all
If it ain't you baby
If I ain't got you baby
Some people want diamond rings
Some just want everything
But everything means nothing
If I ain't got you, you, you
Some people want it all
But I don't want nothing at all
If it ain't you baby
If I ain't got you baby
Some people want diamond rings
Some just want everything
But everything means nothing
If I ain't got you, yeah

If I ain't got you with me baby
So nothing in this whole wide world don't mean a thing
If I ain't got you with me baby

Loving some who love someone is not easy sometimes we saw them yesterday i saw my crush muntikan nalang sila mag kiss ni thrisha sa lips oh my gosh i didnt expected it cause i cant get my special someone who i realy loved for 8 years he never saw me sa im related on it

Deep meaning of Song <3 | Reviewer: Mollie | 1/13/13

My personal review of this song is that loving someone even if it is your parents, grandparents, or someone you just really really care about is so much better than having worldy possessions. It is so true because now a day all everyone wants are material wants and needs...the latest clothes, the newest electronics, the hottest bf/gf, But would you rather choose that person that actually maters in your life? Or that expensive trip to Hawaii. If it were a choice you had before you died, I think most people would choose the person they love. That's what Alicia Keys is trying to voice in this song. If we all just thought more about the people in our lives rather than the next item...the world could be a better place <3
