I've dreamed of you
Always feeling you
Were there
And all my life
I have searched for you
I caught your smile
In the morning sun
I heard your whisper
On the breeze at night
I prayed one day
That your arms would hold me tight

And just when I
Thought love had passed me by
We met
That first look
In your eyes
I can't forget
You melted me
With your tender touch
I felt all fear and sorrow
Slip away
Now here we stand
Hand in hand
This blessed day

I promise you
As I give to you
My heart
That nothing, nothing in this world
Shall keep us apart
Come happily ever after be
The man I'll love
Until the very end
I've dreamed of you
My great love
And my best friend

For god must know
How I love you so
He's blessed us here today
As man and wife
Come dream with me
As I've dreamed of you
All my life
Come dream with me
As I have dreamed of you
All my life
