There lies the difference

I don’t have to go out tonight
I don’t have to guess who I’ll see
I haven’t been lonely
Since the first time we met
Now I know I’ll never be.

‘cos I really care about you
And you really care about me
And there lies the difference
Between now and when I was free.
This time love won’t go away
The future’s so easy to see
And there lies the difference
Between now and what used to be.

There’s no substitute for the truth
And I know you come straight from the heart
And our love stands out in the light of the day
Not only in the heat of the dark.

‘cos I really care …

If I could step back in time
With offers of you to be mine
I’d only step back
As far as when you came to me.

And this time love won’t go away
The future’s so easy to see
And there lies …
