Letra de If I Ain't Got You

Some people live for the fortune
Some people live just for the fame
Some people live for the power, yeah
Some people live just to play the game

Some people think that the physical things define what's within
And I've been there before, and that life's a bore
So full of the superficial

Some people want it all
But I don't want nothing at all
If it ain't you baby
If I ain't got you baby
Some people want diamond rings
Some just want everything
But everything means nothing
If I ain't got you, yeah

Some people search for a fountain
That promises forever young
Some people need three dozen roses
And that's the only way to prove you love them

Hand me the world on a silver platter
And what good would it be
With no one to share, with no one who truly cares for me

Some people want it all
But I don't want nothing at all
If it ain't you baby
If I ain't got you baby
Some people want diamond rings
Some just want everything
But everything means nothing
If I ain't got you

Some people want it all
But I don't want nothing at all
If it ain't you baby
If I ain't got you baby
Some people want diamond rings
Some just want everything
But everything means nothing
If I ain't got you, yeah

If I ain't got you with me baby
So nothing in this whole wide world don't mean a thing
If I ain't got you with me baby

Sobre If I Ain't Got You

  • "If I Ain't Got You" es el sexto tema del segundo álbum de estudio de Keys, "The Diary of Alicia Keys". Fue inspirado por la muerte de la cantante de R&B, Aaliyah en 2001, los ataques del 11 de septiembre, otros eventos mundiales, y cosas que suceden en la vida de Keys.

  • Alicia añadió: "La idea de la canción surgió justo después de la muerte de Aaliyah. Era un momento tan triste y nadie quería creerlo. Me dejó todo muy claro: lo que importa y lo que no importa".
