Oh, you can't say nothing to the pouring rain
And you can't say nothing till there's hope
Again -
(Say) - oh my baby - you must never change
For we're only the ones we love
And I've stood stolen by the pauper's heart
Yes, I've stood stolen where the aching starts
But the way you watched - it's a life apart

For we're only the ones we love
Only
Only
You're the only one who could say
I could love this way
I could love this way

Oh, you can't get even with this kind of pain
But to see you steady brings the calm, again
(Say) - oh my baby - let them stay the same
For we're only the ones we love
And they've seen something which I'll never see
But - I dreamed something when you fell for me
(Yeah), I dreamed something which soars above

For we're only the ones we love
Only the ones we love
Yes, love, and love, mmm, mmm
This love, love
Oh, I get tired - and I get old
But to see you steady brings a flood of gold
(Say, oh, my baby) - I've been taught and told

We're only the ones we love
Only the ones we love
Love, love, mmm, mmm
This love, mmmm, mmm
