Time after time, I tell myself that I’m so lucky to be loving you So lucky to be the one you run to see in the evening when the day is through I know what I know, the passing years will show you’ve kept my love so young, so new And time after time, you’ll hear me say that I’m so lucky to be loving you

Time after time, I tell myself that I’m so lucky to be loving you
So lucky to be the one you run to see in the evening when the day is through
I know what I know, the passing years will show you’ve kept my love so young, so new
And time after time, you’ll hear me say that I’m so lucky to be loving you

If I could be with you, I’d love you strong If I could be with you, I’d love you long I want you to know, I wouldn’t go until I told you, honey, why I love you so  If I could be with you one hour tonight If I was free to do the things I might I’m telling you true, I’d be anything but blue if I could be with you tonight

If I could be with you, I’d love you strong
If I could be with you, I’d love you long
I want you to know, I wouldn’t go until I told you, honey, why I love you so

If I could be with you one hour tonight
If I was free to do the things I might
I’m telling you true, I’d be anything but blue if I could be with you tonight

Each time I see a crowd of people, just like a fool, I stop and stare It’s really not the proper thing to do, but maybe you’ll be there I go out walking after midnight along the lonely thoroughfare It’s not the kind of place to look for you, but maybe you’ll be there
