You know it feels nice,
to have you on my side--oh.
When everything is dark and lonely,
it's hard for me to tell you, baby,
that I want you here beside me, dear.
Don't wander so far from here.
You take the hardest part of leaving.
You make it so hard to believe in.

Ooh...

Oh, you know it takes a lifetime.
Oh, the wage of falling in love.
You know it takes your whole heart--oh, ooh.

I thought that I was wise
and I tell myself I'm right--oh.
No matter how it hurts to breathe in,
I'll take the pieces from the earth.
Oh, can't you see what you're worth?
So long as you can trust me, I'll do
anything it takes to see you.

Ooh...

Oh, you know it takes a lifetime.
Oh, the wage of falling in love.
You know it takes your whole heart--oh, ooh.

I'll never fake a smile just to please you--oh.
Wishing for the wishing well...
Oh...

Ooh...

Oh, you know it takes a lifetime.
Oh, the wage of falling in love.
You know it takes your whole heart--oh, ooh.
