Love comes with a new expression
And the sentimental moon shines in our eyes
Love grows with each new impression
Like an elemental tune that never dies.

But all too soon arrives the dawning
And I awaken to the light of love
The kind of love I want to share with you everyday
We make a promise on this night of love
Let's say a prayer that it might all come true.

Love comes like a revelation
And it changes everything that we can see
Love comes with new inspiration
And it show us everything that we can be.

But all too soon arrives the dawning
And I awaken to the light of love
The kind of love I want to share with you everyday
We make a promise on this night of love
Let's say a prayer that it might all come true.

How many times have you been lost
And even now you count the cost
Of saying all those last goodbyes
Something's come alive on this new morning
You're looking at one more day.

Love comes with a new expression
And the sentimental moon shines in our eyes
Love grows with each new impression
Like an elemental tune that never dies.

But all too soon arrives the dawning
And I awaken to the light of love
The kind of love I want to share with you everyday
We'll make a promise on this night of love
Let's say a prayer that it might all come true ... everyday.
