With You I Can't Lose

(Gene Clark, Pat Robinson)


Written for the film "Karate Kid", but never used.


Blindly I stumble on to new ground
Softly I whisper ... am I lost or found?
Someone has given me all that I need
Hope for the lonely ... the strength to be free

Sometimes you give it all that you can
But when it's all over, will you understand?
Someone is hoping their wish will come true
Someone keeps saying it's long overdue

And maybe I'll make it
Maybe alone
And maybe I'll feel like
I just can't go on
But with you ... oo
I can't lose

When in your absence it's harder to be
Holding the feeling that you give to me
Maybe I'm asking for more than I should
Maybe I'm needing you more than I knew

And maybe I'll make it
Maybe alone
And maybe I'll feel like
I just can't go on
Maybe I'll find I was right all along
But with you ... oo
I can't lose

In the dim light ... blue shadows move
Neither darkness nor light coming through
It is then that I listen within
Over and over again
