(eric carmen)

Baby
Life has come between a lot of happy people
But the world has never had a broken heart
So don't you let it get you too discouraged
Sometimes bein' in love takes a lot of courage

Haven't we come a long way, baby
To let this foolish world
Tear us both apart
Oh darlin'
(I said)
After all we've been through, baby
If you left me now
You know it's got to break my heart

Baby
Everybody tells me the things I ought to be
And all the while I'm just tryin' to make ends meet
Don't you let it bring you down, now honey
'cause the love that we got doesn't cost any money

Haven't we come a long way, baby
To let this foolish world
Tear us both apart
Oh darlin'
(I said)
After all we've been through, baby
If you left me now
You know it's got to break my heart

I said love is the answer
And love is in me

Haven't we come a long way, baby
To let this foolish world
Tear us both apart
Oh darlin'
(listen)
After all we've been through, baby
If you left me now
You know it's got to break my heart

Haven't we come a long way, baby
Haven't we come a long way, baby
Listen when I tell you now
Haven't we come a long way, baby
