Somewhere out my doorway
Somewhere down my block
I can hear her heartbeat
In rhythm with my clock
I want her more than diamonds
I want her more than gold
I want her more than anything anyone could hold
Chorus
We were built to last
On until forever
The world is changing fast
But our love was built to last
She has followed me down
Along those empty streets
She has followed me where the rain would fall in sheets
And I know I been changing
Changing like the wind
I was feeling burned out
I got tired of it
Chorusc
So come to me my darlin'
Hold me while I sleep
I know you feel lost
But you're not in too deep
Chorus
