The Penguin


Didn't Start Livin'

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
