I know that your affection offers me protection
From the little imperfections of my day
And when my dreams go wrong, it's your love that keeps me strong
And helps me move along my chosen way

We've been so long together, seems like it's forever
And so far the world has never beat us down
Yet strange as it may seem, we don't quite make it as a team
'Cause our love can't seem to find a common ground

Sometimes I hear you weepin', when I know you should be sleepin'
And I guess there's things you're keepin' deep inside
I think of all the years, and remember all the tears
And I have to face these fears I've tried to hide

I put my arms around you, and recall the night I found you
And the day that I crowned you as my queen
And I try to understand, with all the love at my command
Why things can't go the way we planned them in our dreams

As I lie here awake I wonder how much I can take
And I think of maybe breakin' ties that bind
But, when all is said and done, I know it's wrong for me to run
So I'll just stay and try to make it one more time

'Cause I know that your affection offers me protection
From the little imperfections of my day
And when my dreams go wrong, it's your love that keeps me strong
And helps me move along my chosen way

We've been so long together, seems like it's forever
And so far the world has never beat us down
Mmm-mm (hum, fade)
