I bless the day I found you
I want to stay around you
And so I beg you, let it be me

Don't take this heaven from one
If you must cling to someone
Now and forever, let it be me

Each time we meet, love
I find complete love
Without your sweet love
What would life be?

So never leave me lonely
Tell me you'll love me only
And that you'll always let it be me

If for each bit of gladness
Someone must taste of sadness
I'll bear the sorrow, let it be me

No matter what the price is
I'll make no sacrifices
Through each tomorrow let it be me

To you I'm praying
Hear what I'm saying
Please, let your heart beat
For me, just me

And never leave me lonely
Tell me you'll love me only
And that you'll always let it be me
Let it be me
