Standing by.

Heather Lydia Thornhill 1981 (Manchester)



I don't understand why I
can't hold you in my arms and sigh.
But I'm standing by your heart
The purest gold could never part.

You say we can't be lovers.
But I'll attract no others
Because my love is you.

Although its hard on you
To hear my image so true
I feel you are creation in me.
You're every emotion I see
when you are up or down and we
Treat each other like no other

You say we can't be lovers.
But I'll attract no others.
Because my love is you.

Once again you're love I find
You had me from the start I know
You're what I'm asking for,my sun
The cheering in my soul, my fun

You say we can't be lovers.
But I'll attract no others.
Because my love is you.

Oh diamonds in my eyes of coal
I know I am your hardest foal
But you've been with me through the years so darling love me through the fears.

You say we can't be lovers.
But I'll attract no others.
Because my love is you.
My love.
Because my love.
Sweetest love.
Because my love is you.
