How, how can it be
That a love carved out of caring
Fashioned by fate could suffer so hard
From the games played once too often
But making mistakes is a part of life's imperfection
Born of the years
Is it so wrong to be human after all?

Drawn into the stream of undefined illusion
Those diamond dreams, they can't disguise the truth

That there is something about you, baby, so right
I wouldn't be without you, baby tonight

If ever our love was concealed
No one can say that we didn't feel
A million things and a perfect dream of life (gone) fragile but free
We remain tender together
If not so in love
And it's not so wrong, we're only human after all

These changing years, they add to your confusion
Oh and you need to hear the time that told the truth

That there is something about you, baby so right
Don't want to be without you, baby tonight
Because there's something about you, baby, so right
I couldn't live without you, baby, tonight

And that there's something about you, yeah
And I couldn't be without you, tonight

    Ok my take. The verses are about a married man who is remembering and fantasizing about an ex lover, thinking about "what if" or what would life be like had things worked out with the ex. Then the pre-chorus is from a distant voice/observer of the situation, saying here you go again, you are being drawn into the stream of undefined illusion. Those diamond dreams can't disguise the truth. Meaning, your imagining a fantasy, not reality. Everything is perfect in a fantasy because it's not real. The married man snaps back into reality realizing that his wife is everything and more than he could have asked for, and he realizes that there is something special about his wife, that if he could choose anyone, he would still choose her "I wouldn't be without you, baby tonight" I feel like the next verse he is thinking about his wife, and how their love might not be openly obvious, but he believes they have feelings for each other (he just isn't sure because he is missing that physical affirmation i.e. no sex) He realizes he/they are not living what he initially visualized of as the perfect love, and he is wondering if they have fell out of love with each other. He is thinking that if they have fallen out if love, that is okay because they're only human. Then the distant voice/observer comes back and reminds the man that being in a long and committed relationship can add to the confusion, when trying to bridge the gap of understanding if they actually have a true love even without the lustful passion. The distant voice/observer reminds the man that those years of time will reveal how true and real their love is. The man again thinks to himself, "wow there really is something special about my wife, and I wouldn't want to be without her, even if I I had the choice to have a passionate affair, because we have the real deal, which is true love.
