Estefan, Gloria - Can't Stay Away From You Lyrics

Time flies
When you're having fun
I heard somebody say
But if all I've been is fun
Then baby let me go
Don't wanna be in your way
And I don't wanna be your second choice
Don't wanna be just your friend
You keep telling me that you're not in love
You wanna throw it all away

But I can't stay away from you
I don't wanna let you go
And though it's killing me that's true
There's just some things I can't control

Your love is slipping through my hands
And though I've heard it all before
I know you're telling me the truth
I know it's just no use
But I can't stay away from you

Hold on to every beat of hope, that's all I ever do
Hoping you might change your mind
And call me up to say how much you need me too
And though you're leaving me no other choice
Than to turn and walk away
Look over your shoulder, I'll be there
You can count on me to stay...

'Cause I can't stay away from you
I don't wanna let you go
And though it's killing me that's true
There's just some things I can't control
Your love is slipping through my hands
And though I've heard it all before

I know you're telling me the truth
I know it's just no use
But I can't stay away from you

  12. andy humphrey

    give a like if gloria should release this again. 30 year anniversary. like 2019. :)

  13. George Armerding

    1:57 the best part. Seems like the song is ending then she goes "Hold on, to every bit of hope" (Laura from 7th grade call me) How the music builds up to the chorus. All the instruments including her are beautiful (there's a fn harp in this song.) My favorite Gloria Estefan ballad. One of the best love songs ever.
