What's the Difference?

What's the difference between day and night,
What the difference between darkness and sight
If you should ever turn your love away from me?

What's the difference between heaven and hell,
What's the difference between sickness and well
If you should ever turn your love away from me?

     I'll always need your love to help and guide me.
     I'll always need your love to keep me strong.
     I'll always need your love to keep the fire blazing in me.
     I'll always need your love to play the music for my songs.

     Oh never give your love to another's fleeting heart.
     Oh never let small differences drive us far apart.
     Oh never let your thoughts dwell upon our woes and sorrows
     Oh never let your heart forget there will always be tomorrow.

What's the difference between peace and strife,
What's the difference between wound and knife
If you should ever turn your love away from me?
What's the difference between gold and rust,
What's the difference between gems and dust
If you should ever turn your love away from me?

     But my soul tells me your love stands more solid than the rocks
     More lasting than the winds, immune to any shock
     It started from an ember, now it's risen to a flame
     No matter how we change, Dear, it burns on just the same,
     So I know your love's more constant than the blue within the sky,
     All mine to live and breathe within to the very day I die, the day I die.

So you'll always have your love there, a light for all my days
You'll always have your love there, a love that never strays.
Always there, to warm my heart, always there to take my part
Never lost to another's touch, never asking for too much
Never lost to another's word, my voice is all your heart has ever heard.

So what's the difference between light and dark,
What's the difference if I miss all my marks
Since you'll never turn your love away from me?
And what's the difference between Doubt and Sure
What's the difference between rich and poor
Since you'll never turn your love away from me?
