When the morning sun streaks across my room
And I've waken up from another dream of you
Yes, I'm on the road, once again it seems
All I've left behind is a chain of broken dreams
But you know I love you
Yes, I love you, oh .... I love you.
How I wish that love is all we need to live
What a life we'd have, 'cos I got so much to give
And it seems so wrong deep inside my heart
That the dark side could be keeping us apart
When you know I love you
Yes, I love you, oh ...I love you.
And if only I could find my way back to the time
When the problems of this life of mine didn't cross our minds
All the answers could be found in children's nursery rhymes
And I'd come running back to you, I'd come running back to you.
But you know we can't live on dreams alone
And to pay the rent I must leave you all alone
But you know I made my choice many years ago
And now this traveling life is the only one I know.
But you know I love you .....
