Lyrics

You take a piece of me every time you leave
And never realize that way I feel about you
My tongue gets tied and my mouth gets dry
I wanna tell you but I don't know how to

But through every night I dream (I dream)
Hope and pray and believe
That someday you and I (I know) will live in ecstasy
The world for you and me

One love, one life
Everything would be alright if I was your lover
One soul, (One mind) one mind
Everything would be alright if I was your lover

Another day goes by and it blows my mind
If I didn't know that you were meant for me
Under the moonlit night, when the time is right
You hold me in your arms from here to infinity

But through every night I dream (I dream)
Hope and pray and believe
So happy that you're mine (I know), we'll live in ecstasy
The world for you and me

(One love, one life)
Everything would be alright if I was your lover
(One soul, one mind)
Everything would be alright if I was your lover
(One love, one life)
Everything would be alright if I was your lover (If I was your lover)
One soul, one mind (One mind)
Everything would be alright if I was your lover

If I was your lover, I'd hold you in my arms from dusk 'til dawn
If I was your lover, one night would last for eternity
If we were together

And every night I dream (I dream)
Hope and pray and believe, yeah
So happy that you're mine (I know), we'll live in ecstasy
The world for you and me

(One love, one life)
Everything would be alright if I was your lover
(One soul) One mind (One mind)
Everything would be alright if I was your lover
One love (One love, one life)
Everything would be alright if I was your lover
(One soul, one life) Mind
Everything would be alright if I was your lover (If I was your lover)
