Last night
You saw me cry
For the first time
And I know it hurt you
That you couldn't comfort me
And you had to hide
I can show my weakness
I don't mind if you see
But showing you where I'm strong
Yeah, that's the hardest for me

[Chorus]
'Cause I'm strong when you're near
I'm strong when I look into your eyes
I'm strong with every word you say
I know you would be surprised
That you are what defines my love
The day our eyes first met
I can't imagine my life without you
And you're the only one
Who doesn't know this yet

Sometimes I just feel like
We're more distant than islands
Oh, what I would give
To have a simple touch of your hand
It really eats me up inside
That I can't explain
I feel so alone when you're not around
When I can’t see your face

[Chorus]
'Cause I'm strong when you're near
I'm strong when I look into your eyes
I'm strong with every word you say
I'm sure you would be surprised
That you are what defines my love
The day our eyes first met
I can't imagine my life without you
And you're the only one
Who doesn't know this yet

I hope this song gets to you
Some time soon
I put it in a nice orange envelope
It should be there by noon
'Cause I never had the strength
To tell you why you are
The only one who gets to me
And you're the only shining star
In my lonely sky
That I'll get lost in tonight
And as I stare at the moon
I'll see your reflection
And I’ll know what all this time was for
To see your true perfection
