Conway Twitty — Us lyrics

Please don't take you out of us.

You took the happy out of happiness
You took the love out of loveliness
Take all these precious things from me if you must
But please don't take you out of us.
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/conway-twitty-us-lyrics.html ]
You took the tender out of tenderness
You took the hope out of hopefulness
Take all these precious things from me if you must
But please don't take you out of us.

Take everything away that's keeping me alive
And you can take away my memory, I still survive.

Take all the happiness that I've ever known
Take all the tenderness that you've ever shown
Take all these precious things from me if you must
But please don't take you out of us...
