Because of you, I face the world with pride,
Because you are the breeze I drift upon
In heaven flows from your eyes,
Even though I've told lies,
It always seems so long
Since we made love this strong,
I think it's time we tried,
To bring these dreams alive and drain 'em dry

Somehow, when I'm in your arms,
Deep in the blindness of love,
You become all the women,
I have ever known,
Searching your skin;

Because of you, I face the world with pride,
Because you are the breeze I drift upon
In heaven flows from your eyes,
Even though I've told lies,
It always seems so long
Since we made love this strong,
I think it's time we tried,
To bring these dreams alive and drain 'em dry

I hope you understand,
What makes this man,
Want to you right
