(Doug Johnson)

We met the couple in a restaurant in Dallas
They were twice our age and so much in love
Twenty years they were celebrating
Hand in hand they couldn't sit close enough
I leaned over and asked that man
What is your secret for love like that

He said there's never really been any secret
Love is simply what you make of it
In a world with so many choices
Just give your heart and then stand by it

We bought champagne and we toasted the couple
They wished us well and then went their way
We sat back down a little closer together
And you told me what that woman had to say
She said honey love won't ever be easy
But that don't mean it can't be the best

You see there's never really been any secret
Love is simply what you make of it
In a world with so many choices
Just give your heart and then stand by it

Two people in love
I wonder if they know how much they meant to us

We've often wondered about that couple
Where they are and what they're doing today
They're probably in some restaurant in Dallas
Helping some young couple find their way

They're saying there's never really been any secret
Love is simply what you make of it
In a world with so many choices
Just give your heart and then stand by it
Go on and give your heart and then stand by it
