That we're sharing, All the ups we have in life, While comparing, All the downs that we've survived. But how much stronger Our love becomes.
And the longer we're living as one, The more we'll overcome. And I have lived the greatest love song, That my singer's years have ever heard.
You make this weary woman happy. I overflow, it's cause I know You wouldn't trade me, For the moon inside a jar For you've made me Both the moon and the stars And in our twilight, We will recall, that the highlight For us in this world, Was having dreams come true. I'm so comfortable with you. Jeff, you've made my dreams come true.
