Let's take a walk together near the ocean shore

Hand in hand
You and I.
Let's cherish ev'ry moment we have been given

For time is passing by.

I often pray before I lay down by your side;
If you receive your calling before I awake

Could I make it through the night?

Cherish the love we have
We should cherish the life we live

Cherish the love
Cherish the life
Cherish the love.
Cherish the love we have for as long as we both shall live

Cherish the love
Cherish the life
Cherish the love.

The world is always changing
Nothing stays the same

But love was stand the test of time.
The next life that we live in remains to be seen

Will you be by my side?
I offen pray before I lay down by your side; . . .

Cherish the love we have

We should cherish the life we live - baby yeah -
Cherish the love
Cherish the life - oh yeah -
Cherish the love.
Cherish the love we have - while we're together -
For as long as we both shall live - will you love me -
Cherish the love
Cherish the life
Cherish the love.

Cherish the love
Cherish the life.
Cherish the love we have
We should cherish the life we live

Cherish the love
Cherish the life
Cherish the love.
Cherish the love we have - ev'ry night when I think about you -
For as long as we both shall live -
I pray that my dream will come true
Cherish the love
Cherish the life -
Yes
I do - cherish the love.

Cherish the love we have -
We have cherished ev'ry moment we have together -
We should cherish the life we live - hand in hand
You and I -
Cherish the love
Cherish the life - baby - cherish the love.
Cherish the love we have for as long as we both shall live

Cherish the love
Cherish the life
Cherish the love.

    From a young girl who fell in love and then had it broken. This song always hit a special place in my heart. But times have changed and have a wonderful life and a wonderful husband.

    I played this song on the keyboard this morning using an a-minor chord because it is easier for me, although the song was actually done in b-flat minor.
