Carpenters – Because We Are In Love lyrics


It was more fun to be children

We just took life as it happened

Run thru the days

Don't look behind

Over wink of an eye and it's over

What a surprise to discover

We were people ourselves

What kind of people did we want to be

No answer ever came to me

It didn't sleep at all last night

Mom, I've come to you like yesterday

About today

Mom, I'm afraid

Hon, come and sit by my side

Listen to me

Words come so hard

But what my heart says

I will give you

Because you are in love

Your eyes begin to open

As if you had awaken from a sleep

Because you are in love

You use imagination

And lose your concentration

When someone drops his name

You're back in his arms as always

Your day-dreams work out that way

It's all just a trick you mind plays

The more love grows

The more it says the same

(Same little girl who's frightened)

But I love him so

(Same little girl who's sure)

That she loves him so

(Sees with a woman's vision knows what a woman knows)

Because we are in love

We reach for our tomorrows

And know we won't be lonely

In laughter and in sorrows

Where love abides

There is the place we'll keep our home forever

You and I

Because we are in love

When love abides

There is the place we'll keep our home forever

You and I

Beacuse we are in love
