No heartaches felt no longer lonely
Nights of waiting finally won me
Happiness that's all rolled up in you

And now with you as inspiration
I look toward a destination
Sunny bright that once before was blue

I have no more than I did before
But now I've got all that I need
For I love you and I know you love me

So take my hand I'll start my journey
Free from all the helpless worry
That besets a man when he's alone

For strength is mine when we're together
And with you I know I'll never
Have to pass the high road for the low

I have no more than I did before
But now I've got all that I need
For I love you and I know you love me

Play, magic fingers
Eee haa
Oh, pick it, Luther

I have no more than I did before
But now I've got all that I need
For I love you and I know you love me

Yes, I love you and I know you love me

    General CommentThe most amazing thing about this song to me is the fact that it came out when I was fifteen, and didn't actually listen to it or know the lyrics until a month ago when I tripped over it on Reddit! I've been seeing a woman that has turned out to be the one, after a lifetime of looking, and these lyrics just fit us perfectly! When, in your "older" age things seem to get a little materialistic, the words "I have no more than I did before, but now I have all that I need" strike home, and say it all. Thank you Michael Nesmith! And, I know that little wink at the end was acknowledgement of me and Andrea!
