To Have or Not Have You
Words and Music By Craig Bowers

It's like the difference between day and night
You know the difference between wrong and right
Between a nightmare and a dreamless sleep
Between secrets that you tell and secrets that you keep

Between the holy Bible and a girlie magazine
Between perfume and gasoline
Between the handle and the blade of a knife
To have or not have you in my life

The stones you cast away the stones you save
Between the thunder and the silence of the grave
Between a man who sleeps alone or with a wife
To have or not have you in my life

The way the cards will fall
The way the wind will blow
The way the world unfolds
The changes we all know
The way the rabbit disappears right up a sleeve
The way you had to leave

I know the difference between passion and lust
The strength of steel, the weakness of rust
Between the silver spoon and toil and strife
To have or not have you in my life
