Lyrics

1. Am I a fool,
Am I a fool to say I love you
When I do?
And is it wrong,
Is it wrong of me to say
That the name inside is still yours?

Chorus:
Because I do.
And though this may be the only chance I have to say these words, I do,
Yes I do.
And though this may not be the time, the place;
No flowers and guests and all the rest,
I do;
Nonetheless I do,
Nonetheless I do.

2. Don't you believe,
Don't you believe love can be hard?
Well I do.
And don't you know,
Don't you know that feeling scared
Doesn't mean you have to walk away?

Chorus

I wish you'd said something to me,
But then again, no.
What I wish with all my heart Is that you'd wanted this.

3. Cos don't you see,
Don't you see all that could be, all that could have been?
And don't you know
That a life that cuts out risk
Cuts out love and that's no life at all?

Chorus
