You’re once in a lifetime,
An eclipse of the nighttime,
Like the sand and the sea,
Baby, you and me.

I’m nothing without you this time,
I know.

The rougest of weather,
And we’ll still be together,
Like a bird and a bee,
So happy we will be.

A lifetime seems nothing,
by your side.

I’ve been all alone so long,
It’s made my heart as hard as stone,
But since I’ve had you by my side,
There’s been a whole new start to life.

Life’s long road has been rocky,
And the path up and winding,
We’re going down to the sea,
Baby, you and me.

A new day is dawning,
in my life.

A new sun is shining,
That old clock is unwinding,
Pod and a pea,
Baby, you and me.

You may think I’m crazy,
But now i’m home.

The winter cold, it takes it’s toll,
On everything that stands alone,
But with you I will always know,
Shelter from the rain and snow.

Once in a lifetime,
An eclipse of the nighttime,
Like the sand and the sea,
Baby, you and me.

I’m nothing without you this time,
I know.

Happy and free,
You may think it’s nothing,
But I don’t.

It seems to me that
   hate’s a bad emotion,
But day to day, and end to end,
It sure takes pure devotion.
