Lyrics

ANNIVERSARY NIGHT

Who is this stranger that lies here beside me
To whom I?ve given all of my love?
She lies here beside me and gives me a feeling
She comes to my heart like the peace of a dove
Floating like a leaf in the wind
Or washed upon like a wave at the shore
All my life I have looked for you
Now I don?t have to look no more
Since I?ve found out you?re with me.

How can I tell you how much I love you
And how much I need you when I can?t be there?
I think that I told you many times before
But I wish I could hold you and calm all your fears
Lady, I think you really know
Sometimes, I guess it don?t always show
But all my life, I will live for you
And everything, I would give up, too,
Just to have you by my side.

She is my wife, and I love her
She is my life, and I need her so
That she?ll never go away.

Remember the days when we?d look to the future
And fight for the time with all of our might?
Remember the promise you made to me, baby,
And how you fulfilled it our honeymoon night
Lost in the depth of our love
Lost in the depth of the dark
All the questions that were in my soul
The answers I found within your heart
As you opened it up for me to see, and hold, and be....

Who is this stranger that lies here beside me
To whom I?ve given all of my love?
She lies here beside me and gives me a feeling
She comes to my heart like the peace of a dove
Floating like a leaf in the wind
Or washed upon like a wave at the shore
All my life I have looked for you
Now I don?t have to look no more
Since I?ve found out you?re with me.

She is my wife, and I love her
She is my life, and I need her so
That she?ll never go away.
And she?ll never go away.
And she?ll never go away.
