For Stevron

lyrics

These will be the days
That we'll remember in days to come
The years slipped by so quickly
Now we're none of us so young
I'm frightened by emotions
Too wild for my control
Sometimes I've tried to hurt you
And at times I hurt us both
I cry out loud thinking back about
How I've been so blind and dumb
And I'm still shaken by your grace and innocence
After all we've been and done

But if I should dream, it'd be of you
Of you old friend, woa yeah
No one I know has the power to move me
The way you move me
Oh and you do...

Loving you has never been easy
Oh but maybe I've been trying too hard
Cos at last I can start to see you
As you really, really are
You walk ahead with a spring in your step
And a twinkle in your eye
I'm so weary and I'm aching all over
But I finally feel alive

If I should dream, it'll be of you
Of you old friend, oh yeah
No one I know has the power to move me
The way you move me
And you do...

Loving you has never been easy
And I never thought I'd get this far
But at last I can start to see you
And to know you as you really are
I'm a bit of a cynic and too long in the tooth
To try and overstate the case
But I don't want to embarass us both tonight
By saying this to your face

But if I should dream, it'd be of you
Of you old friend, oh yeah
You're the one I know with the power to move me
Move me - the way you move me
And you do...

Think I'd better go
Think I'd better go now
Somehow I think I'd better go now
Think I'd better go
Think I'd better go now
Old friend, I think I'd better go now
