Of course we have our differences
You shouldn’t be surprised
It’s as natural as changes
In the seasons and the skies
Sometimes we grow together
Sometimes we drift apart
A wiser man than I might know
The seasons of the heart

And I’m walking here beside you
In the early evening chill
A thing we’ve always loved to do
I know we always will
We have so much in common
So many things we share
That I can’t believe my heart
When it implies that you’re not there

Love is why I came here in the first place
Love is now the reason I must go
Love is all I ever hoped to find here
Love is still the only dream I know

So I don’t know how to tell you
It’s difficult to say
I never in my wildest dreams
Imagined it this way
But sometimes I just don’t know you
There’s a stranger in our home
When I’m lying right beside you
Is when I’m most alone

And I think my heart is broken
There’s an emptiness inside
So many things I’ve longed for
Have so often been denied
Still I wouldn’t try to change you
There’s no one that’s to blame
It’s just some things that mean so much
And we just don’t feel the same

Love is why I came here in the first place
Love is now the reason I must go
Love is all I ever hoped to find here
Love is still the only dream I know
True love is still the only dream I know
