A child asks his mother, "Do you love me?"
And it really means, "Will you protect me?"
His mother answers him, "I love you"
And it really means, "You've been a good boy"
And as the years go by, true love will never die
At seventeen his girl says, "Do you love me?"
And it really means, "Will you respect me?"
The teenage boy answers, "I love you"
And it really means, "Can I make love to you?"
And as the years go by, true love will never die
I will love you forever
I will love you forever

At sixty-five his wife says, "Do you love me?"
And it means, "I like to hear it again"
Her husband says to her, "I love you"
But it really means, "I'll love you till the end"
And as the years go by, true love will never die
Now you're asking me if I love you
And it really means, "Will I marry you?"
And I answer, "Yes, I love you"
But it really means that I won't be untrue
And as the years go by, true love will never die
I will love you forever
I will love you forever
