I still recall that day you first came into the light
waiting to make my endless wrongs into one right
and it was like my shoulder had hit a concrete wall
but I was man enough to catch my stumble and I didn't want to fall
ignoring the little hints fate was dropping me
ignoring the way that something inside turned on when you talked to me
waiting for my dust to clear the cobwebs in my head
the word love didn't come to mind until i fell asleep in an empty bed

But in every single thing I do you are right there by my side
When the light's so dim that I can't see in you open my eyes wide
It's a sweet burning flame that licks at my soul
It's the thing inside me:
you keep me whole

There are certain things I remember like they happened yeasterday
and there certain other things I couldn't tell you right away
the day I fell in love with you stands out like white on blue
like a scene I could touch because it means so much
but the actors seems so far away

I don't know how this thing hangs on
but when the two of us are gone
lovers can look up and we will whisper down:
it's gonna be alright

Chorus 3:
But in every single thing I do you are right there by my side
When the lights so dim that I can't see in you open my eyes wide
It's a sweet burning flame that licks at my soul
You're everything to me:
you keep me whole

Ad Lib Outro stuff:
[there's nothing that our love can't do
it's you for me and me for you
when I'm living black and feeling blue
I'll always have someone I can turn to]

[it's because you take my breath away
every minute of every single day
if there were one thing that I could say
it'd be I'll be here for you in every way]
