This is dedicated to the one I love
While I'm far away from you, my baby
I know it's hard for you, my baby
Because it's hard for me, my baby
And the darkest hour is just before dawn
Each night before you go to bed, my baby
Whisper a little prayer for me, my baby
And tell all the stars above
This is dedicated to the one I love

Life can never be
Exactly like we want it to be
But I can be satisfied
Just knowing you love me

There's one thing I want you to do
Especially for me
And it's something that everybody needs

Each night before you go to bed, my baby
Whisper a little prayer for me, my baby
And tell all the stars above

This is dedicated to the one I love
This is dedicated to the one I love
This is dedicated to the one I love
