didn’t start livin’ lyrics – billy burnette

written by billy burnette and tony colton.
well i thought i was a bad boy
chasin’ everything in sight
i didn’t come alive
’til the sun went down at night
i thought i’d been everywhere
done everything that a man could do
but i didn’t start livin’
until i started lovin’ you

well i’ve been to rome, georgia
and paris, tennessee
i couldn’t be tied down
nothin’ had a hold on me
i was beginning to believe
i was one of the chosen few
but i didn’t start livin’
until i started lovin’ you

you gave my life a whole new meaning
more than it ever had before
since you’ve been my sweet angel
we’re knockin’ on heaven’s door

i thought the neon nightlife
was never gonna let me be
i thought that livin’ on the edge
would always be my destiny
i thought i’d been everywhere
done everything a man could do
but i didn’t start livin’
until i started lovin’ you
yeah, i didn’t start livin’
until i started lovin’ you
