Take away the song a songbird sings
Take away the sound that laughter brings
Take the music from a melody
But never take your love from me

You make me smile you make sad times turn into warm
sunshine
You give me love the Lord above knows

I wouldn't know what to do if you wouldn't be my lady
I wouldn't know what to do if you weren't here today
I wouldn't know what to do if you wouldn't be my lady
I wouldn't know what to do if you weren't here to stay
I love you

Take away the gentle summer breeze
Take away the golden autumn leaves
I can live without blue skies above
But I could never live without your love


You give me life you make bad times turn into the good
times
You give me love Lord above knows

I wouldn't know what to do if you wouldn't be my lady
I wouldn't know what to do if you weren't here today
I wouldn't know what to do if you wouldn't be my lady
I wouldn't know what to do if you weren't here to stay
I love you

I wouldn't know what to do if you wouldn't be my lady
I wouldn't know what to do if you weren't here today
I wouldn't know what to do if you wouldn't be my lady
I wouldn't know what to do if you weren't here to stay
I love you
