When the mornin' sun 
Streaks across my room 
And I'm wakin' up 
From another dream of you 
Yes, you know I'm on the road 
Once again it seems 
All that's left behind 
Is a chain of broken dreams 

But you know that I love you 
You know that I love you 
Oh, I love you 

And how I wish that love 
Was all we'd need to live 
What a life we'd have 
'Cause I've got so much to give 
But ya' know I feel so sad 
Down inside my heart 
That the dollar sign 
Should be keepin' us apart 

But you know that I love you 
You know that I love you 
Oh, how I love you 

And if only I could find my way back to the time 
When the problems of this life 
Had not yet crossed my mind 
And the answers could be found in children's nursery rhymes 
I'd come runnin' back to you 
I'd come runnin' back to you 

But you know we can't 
Live on dreams alone 
Got to pay the rent 
So I must leave you all alone 
'Cause you know I made my choice many years ago 
And now this travelin' life 
Well, it's the only life I know 

But you know that I love you 
You know that I love you 
Oh, I love you 
But you know that I love you 
You know that I love you 
Oh, how I love you 
But you know that I love you 
You know that I love you 
Oh, how I love you 

But you know I love you 
But you know I love you 
Oh, I love you 
But you know that I love you 
But you know that I love you 
Oh, how I love you 
But you know that I love you 
But you know that I love you
