What went wrong
I was so sure that love had led me to your door
Was it a dream, nothing more

Inside my head
I keep hearing all the tender words we said
Who were they for

We are strong
We can hold on to each other if we try
And make it right, for you and I
There's no goodbyes

Only the fool survives
Only the heart provides
Sweet love and tenderness
Save us tonight

Life is change
But I never want to leave this love behind
We've come too far to lose this time

Where there's love
There is nothing strong enough to come between
What we believe
And break us up where there is love

Only the fool survives
Only the heart provides
Sweet love and tenderness
Save us tonight

Only the fool survives
Even the hardest times
Let all the love we share
Keep us alive

See your eyes in a million faces
See your smiles in a thousand places
And I never escape your memories

You'd be there everywhere that I go
You're the only real thing I know
And I never wanted to be free
Stay here with me

Only the fool survives
Only the heart provides
Sweet love and tenderness
Save us tonight

Only the fool survives
Even the hardest times
Let al the love we share
Keep us alive...
