My dearest darling,
For you I write this song.
There's a space in my life,
A space where you belong.

Though another girl
May someday fill that space,
There's no one alive
Who could ever take your place.

And when I meet a girl
Whom I think could take your place,
I look into her eyes
And I see your face.

And when I try to love another,
It's useless. 'Cause my love for you,
Like the sun behind a cloud,
Suddenly comes shining through.

I love everything you are,
And everything about you,
So let's get together,
'Cause I can't live without you.

1983 rmv
