There's a lot of people talkin' 'bout stuff that they don't know.
All they got to give you is a lot of blow and no-go.

Here I stand before you and you know just what I bring.
A love that's strong and so true honey it's the real thang.

I know you've had some others they told you they were all that.
But when it came right down to it they just all left you flat.

So don't you ever doubt me you know I'd never tell you no lie.
I'm onboard for the longrun, won't you give my love a try?
