I Live On Love

My pockets are empty    The cupboards are bare    No problem for me    Never give it a care    No need for food    No use for money    No dark clouds    For me always sunny    Our first moment    Was a sudden glance    From across the room    I asked you to dance    We danced on and on    All through the night    In my arms    Till the morning light    Been dreaming of you    All my life    MY destiny, My fate, My love    Will you be my wife    Sorry  I have a man    Waiting for me    You and I    Were not meant to be    For the last ten years Of my life    Can`t change the fact    I`m his wife    Her eyes said yes    A voice said no    It`s getting late    I have to go    Been waiting for her    A thousand years     Left my arms Covered with tears    Our night together     Changed my life    No other woman    Will ever be my wife    I look for you    Wherever I go    The woman I love    That told me no    I`m a fool in love    A victim of fate    Our dance together    Ten years too late    All the lonely hearts    Cry out to me    Never love a woman    That was not meant to be    Have not danced    Since that night    Only with you    Does everything feel right    I`ve prayed to God    A voice on deaf ears    No answer to my pleas    Been waiting for years    Alone for a lifetime    My choice to be    Hoping one day    It would be you with me    The world has passed me bye    I`m at the end of my life    Never will I be able to say    Thank you for being my wife     I`m a fool in love    A victim of fate    Our dance together     A lifetime too late

    Love this, Richard. It reminds me of "Sad to belong to someone else when the right one comes along." Do you know this song from the 80's? It's one of my very favorites.
