I never saw a love like the one I saw tonight
She held his hand like sugarcane
And kissed away his unsweet dreaming
Like a proud little girl with a new best friend
The wife offers her husband everything

"I'll give you candy
I'll tell I you secrets
I'll let you hold my heart inside your hands
I'll take you flying
We'll touch the sun with our bare fingers
If you'll just come back
To where your true love lingers"

Romeo's sleeping though he does not seem of peace
The rhythm of his breathing leaves
Too much to the imagination
And the doctors still don't know why he slips away
This modern day's no downing
On the mysteries of life and living
"Love is death defying!" she whispers to her soul
And all of her is crying 'cause she has no self control

"I'll give you candy
I'll tell I you secrets
I'll let you hold my heart inside your hands
I'll take you flying
We'll touch the sun with our bare fingers
If you'll just come back
To where your true love lingers"

So many people have the very thing they'll never need
So many people hold the very one they'll end up loathing
But I saw a woman and a man ten thousand miles from dry land
Content to just be floating

"I'll give you candy
I'll tell I you secrets
I'll let you hold my heart inside your hands
I'll take you flying
We'll touch the sun with our bare fingers
If you'll just come back
To where your true love lingers"
