When the morning sun streaks across my room
And I've waken up from another dream of you
Yes I'm on the road, once again it seems
All I've left behind, is a chain of broken dream

But you know I love you
Yes I love you, oh I love you

How I wish that love, is all we need to live
What a life we'd live, 'cause I've got so much to give
And it seems so wrong, deep inside my heart
That the dollar sign could be keeping us apart
When you know I love
Yes I love you

And if I could only find my way back to the time
When the problems of this life of mine didn't cross our minds
All the answers were found in children's nursery rhymes
I'd come running back to you, I'd come running back to you

But you know we can't live on dreams alone
Just to pay the rent, I must leave you all alone
But you know I made me choice many years ago
And this traveling life is the only one I know

But you know, I love you
Yes I love you, oh I love you
But you know, I love you
Yes I love you, oh I love you

But you know, I love you
Yes I love you, oh I love you
But you know, I love you
Yes I love you, oh I love you

But you know, I love you
Yes I love you, oh I love you
But you know, I love you
Yes I love you, oh I love you
