And if you can’t be
With the one you love
Honey, love the one you’re with
Love is sweet and so divine
And I can’t wait for my love life to shine
Can anybody tell me where I can find
Are you gonna be in love with me
I want you and need to be, yeah
Still in love with me
Say you’re gonna be in love with me
So let yourself reach for that star
And go no matter how far
To the one you love
