There are so many words of love that I want to say to you,
And special deeds to please your heart that I would like to do.
There are so many wishes and so many dreams to share,
And all the other ways to tell how much I truly care.
And I could buy you presents, dear and promise you the moon,
And I could fashion you a song around a perfect tune.
But all I ever think about is just to let you know,
That I adore you every day and it is really so.
That you mean more than every breath and all the atmosphere,
And I could never be more sure and never more sincere.
I only have one life to live and I want to live it with you,
I only have one heart to give and I want to give it to you.
The years that are gone won’t ever return, the years ahead are precious and few,
So since I only have one life to live, I want to live it with you.
