No heartaches felt no longer lonely
Heights of waiting finally won me
Happiness that's all rolled up in you

And now with you as inspiration
I look toward a destination
Sunny bright that once before was blue

I have no more than I did before
But now I've got all that I need
For I love you and I know you love me

So take my hand I'll start my journey
Free from all the helpless worry
That besets a man when he's alone

For strength is mine when we're together
And with you I know I'll never
Have to pass the high road for the low

I have no more than I did before
But now I've got all that I need
'Cause I love you and I know you love me
Yes, I love you and I, know, you, love me
