i’d rather be with you lyrics – terry callier

i could take my guitar and hit the road try to be a star
that sort of thing just don’t appeal to me
i could play some one night stands traveling’ light a one man band
but i know this is where i’de rather be

it’s your bright sunshine that lifted all the shadows off my mind
yeah your sweet love led me to a brighter day
so you never have to worry bout me leaving you behind
wait and see i won’t ever turn away

cause you made my dream come true
and gave my life new meaning too and more than anything
i’d rather be with you

well i’d rather be with you babe if i could
i’d rather be with you
you know i’d rather be with you babe surely would
you know i’d rather be with you

now this ghetto life is hard in our concrete front yard
nothing grows except a single tree to mark our place
but the moment that i’m with you girl your light and love
shine through and then i realize you’re my saving grace

i could catch that old greyhound head up north and b*m around
watch the sun set on the san francisco bay
but you mean so much to me i could never put you down
that would be to big a price for me to pay

cause you made my dream come true and gave my life new meaning too
and more than anything
i’d rather be with you

i’d rather be with you babe if i could
i’d rather be with you
i’d rather be with you babe surely would
i’d rather be with you
i’d rather be with you
i’d rather be with you
