I've got to keep on keeping on
I just wanna be beside you
Wanna do the best I can

Even though you've made it plain
You don't believe in love
I can't let you go
I can't walk away

Come on baby can't you see
All the need in me
Like the ocean speaks
To the naked man

The rhythm of your heart
Is like a sonnet
Pure and sweet
How you haunt my memory

Believe me baby
In this brilliant world
You're the best

You're like a porcelain charm
A perfumed smile, a teenage blush
You're like champagne roses

Come on baby can't you see
All the need in me
Like the ocean speaks
To the naked man

I've got to keep on keeping on
How can I live without you
Got to make you understand

Each species has a mate
And fate says you'll be mine
I won't let you down

Come on baby can't you see
All the need in me
Like the ocean speaks
To the naked man

The rhythm of your heart
Is like a sonnet
Pure and sweet
How you haunt my memory

I believe in angels
You leave me no alternative
You're like a butterfly
A gospel choir, a sun kissed sky
You're like sensual velvet

Believe me baby
In this brilliant world
You're the best

You're like a porcelain charm
A perfumed smile, a teenage blush
You're like sunshine roses

Come on baby can't you see
All the need in me
Like the ocean speaks
To the naked man

Come on baby can't you see
All the need in me
Like the ocean speaks
To the naked man
