Never Wanna Leave You

Never could say what I wanna say
Never could do what I wanna do
Never could believe you, if it’s true
Never could, never would, you make it so hard
I Never Wanna Leave You

I’m always right, you’re never wrong
We change the tune but not the song
Over and Over
Till it’s done, it’s never done, never done
You make it so hard
Never Wanna Leave You
I Never Wanna Leave You

Movin’ together, comin’ apart
You’re what I need, I’m what you want
Never could refuse you from the start
Never could, never would, never could
You make it so hard

Never could say what I wanna say
Never could do what I wanna do
Never could believe you, if it’s true
Never could, never would, you make it so hard

I Never Wanna Leave You
I Never Wanna Leave You
I Never Wanna Leave You
Never Wanna Leave You
I Never Wanna Leave You
I Never Wanna Leave You
I Never Wanna Leave You
I Never Wanna Leave You
I Never Wanna Leave You
I Never Wanna Leave You
I Never Wanna Leave You
I Never Wanna Leave You
I Never Wanna

  • Pat: Neil started that song; I cleaned it up. I’m always the third and fourth verse writer. He gives me all his junk. We finished up at my apartment.
    Neil: I actually started writing that when I was going to sleep and I just had a guitar by my bed. I was just going boom, boom. That’s why it’s so┬ámonotonous. I was just going boom, boom, boom, and I┬ástarted figuring out, ‘Oh this might be good.’ Before we did the record it was in a major key. That’s when we fooled around with it and said, this ain’t right, and changed it to a minor key. The vocal phrasing comes from not going to sleep, I think. I used some real fast picking there; it’s a kind of sliding effect I call The Killer Bees. That’s what you feel like when you can’t go to sleep.
