The Life You've Given Me


I lie and watch you sleeping,
contentment on your face.

What is it that you're dreaming?

Can I join you in that place?

I wish that I could be there

if it's good or if it's bad,

be the cause of your sweet sighing

or to drive away what's sad.

I'm wide awake tonight,
but living in a dream.

Never thought you'd be here.

Do you know how much this means?

When you came to me this evening,

I felt I was at last alive.

Do you know how much I love you,

how you've touched me deep inside?

The first time I saw your face
my eyes began to open,

the child in my soul

seeing for the first time.

A sudden rush of longing,

a glimpse of how my life could be...

My life was nothing

next to the life you've given me.

Now that we're together,
vowed never to depart,

we'll remain as one forever

in a union of the heart.

When you look, I'll always be there.

Reach out, you'll find my hand.

You will know how much I love you --

I will make you understand.

When I look into your face,
my eyes finally open,

the child in my soul

gazes into paradise.

A sudden rush of longing,

satisfied by your love for me...

My life was nothing

next to the life you've given me.
