(1) Stand beside me all the while no matter what goes wrong
Separately we're weak, together we'll be strong
Fo-or true love never runs smooth, but I don't care
'cause true love is worth all the pain, the heartaches and tears
That we may sha-are.

{repeat first line of (1): substituting la-la-la-la-la-la-la}

(2) When the world outside my arms is pulling us apart
Press your lips to mine and hold me with your heart
Fo-or true love never runs smooth, that's what they say
But true love is worth all the pain, the heartaches and tears
We have to fa-ace.




3) {repeat first TWO lines of (1): substituting la-la-la-la-la-la-la}

Fo-or true love never runs smooth, that's what they say
But true love is worth all the pain, the heartaches and tears
We have to fa-ace.

{repeat just first line of (1): substituting la-la-la-la-la-la-la}
{repeat just first line of (1): substituting la-la-la-la-la-la-la}
