You gave me back my soul again by showin' me
The laughter and the wonder in your eyes
Saved me from the shuttered man I used to be opened up the windows of my life
And the happiness you've given me for lovin' you is sweeter love and deeper every day
I can't stop the changes that you're growin' through
Or someone new from stealing you away
So darling when it's time you can spread your wings
And I'll set you free to fly away and it's OK
Cause darling time changes everything but it won't change me
I love you oh I love you
[ piano - mandolin ]
Inside of me you'll always be my valentine
I pray your freedom makes your dreams come true
As long as there's a heartbeat in this soul of mine
You'll know there's someone so in love with you
So darling when it's time...
