The fear we feel
Just life's weary doubt
The spinning wheel
Day in and day out.

You react in anger,
Sometimes tears,
Were you really entitled
To all these years?

Oh, those hours of love.
Oh, those hours of peace.
Promises more and more
Everything's increase.

When did you really earn
Those eyes that shared
Deeply into yours?
You could taste the yearn.

When did you actually deserve
Those moments of bliss?
Those loving arms?
That deep, deep kiss?

You didn't ask why.
You didn't try to earn it.
You didn't really deserve it;
And neither did I.

We sang those crazy times
Like a heavenly choir:
We heard sacred chimes,
Felt forbidden fire.

We acted as though –
Who could blame us –
As though love was always
And nothing could tame us.

That we were right
Years remove all doubt,
We were oh, oh so right,
Day in and day out.
