All day long in my thoughts, you're beside me
Close my eyes and I know you'€™ll be there
Nice to know, that you'€™ll always forgive me
With your smile and your love so dear

Late at night, in my dreams you surround me
Smiling soft, as we slip through the night
Want to touch, there are times you astound me
Whispering words in the morning light

Seems to me, seems to me you'€™re the reason
Why I live, try to give all I can
And to see, that for me, I'™m forgiven
When you're near, I'll know you'€™ll understand

So don'€™t you forget, what I'€™m saying is true
And it's coming from deep in my heart
And I hope that you know, with this feeling
For you, nothing can keep us apart

But if you go, I would never forget you
Like the thought, you are deep in my mind
I guess you know, in my lifetime of waiting
With your warmth and your love so fine

Seems to me, seems to me, you're the reason
Why I live, try to give all I can
Can'€™t you see, that for me, I'™m forgiven
When you're near, I know you'€™ll understand

Ah, seems to me, seems to me you're the reason
Why I live, try to give all I can
Why can'€™t you see, that for me, I'€™m forgiven
When you'™re near, I know you'™ll understand

Ah, seems to me, seems to me you're the reason
Why I live, try to give all I can
Ah, why can't you see, that for me
