“Don’t you worry there, my honey
We might not have any money
But we’ve got our love to pay the bills
Maybe I think you’re cute and funny
Maybe I wanna do what bunnies do with you, if you know what I mean
Oh, let’s get rich and buy our parents homes in the south of France
Let’s get rich and give everybody nice sweaters and teach them how to dance
Let’s get rich and build a house on a mountain making everybody look like ants
From way up there, you and I, you and I
Well, you might be a bit confused
And you might be a little bit bruised
But baby how we spoon like no one else
So I will help you read those books
If you will soothe my worried looks
And we will put the lonesome on the shelf”

You’re the light
That helps me find my way
You’re the words
When I have nothing to say
And in this world
Where nothing else is true
Here I am
Still tangled up in you
I’m still tangled up in you
Still tangled up in you”

“I just want to lay next to you
For a while,
You look so beautiful tonight,
Your eyes are so lovely,
Your mouth is so sweet.
A lot of people
That’s because they don’t
Know me at all.
I just want to touch you
And hold you,
I need you
God, I need you
I love you so much.
Each time the wind blows,
I hear your voice so
I call your name.
Whispers at morning,
Our love is dawning,
Heaven’s glad you came.”
