I Will

 Is this your voice I heard
 Speakin' my name
 I hang on every word
 Each letter that I write
 Every day, every night
 But I just can't live and learn
 Talking to myself and believin'
 I could live without you
 Livin' on the lies and believin' that
 Love would stay
 Listen to me please and I'm beggin' on
 My knees before you
 But you don't show the way
 No you don't show the way
 He may change your world and someday
 He may break your heart
 And you deserve no better
 If you love him I will step aside
 I offer this to you
 So leave me as I love you still
 And if he don't keep you warm
 You know I will
 You know I will
 So this is who you are
 And the rest of my life
 I dedicate to you
 And I know that love can't wait
 There's a moon and a sun
 And a dream that sees me through
 A little bit of change and
 A little bit of my desire
 I was shakin' all over and
 I didn't know what to say
 I'm the man in the middle and
 The middle man catches fire
 But I don't know how to go away
 No I don't know how to go away
 He became your hero somehow
 I become your clown
 And you deserve no better but my love
 Is here and all I found
 I offer this to you
 So leave me as I love you still
 And if he don't take your heart
 You know I will
 It ain't wise
 It ain't smart
 You say there's no doubt about it
 If you decide
 You got somebody else
 When I want you to myself
 I can't stop
 I can't look
 I can't say no more about it
 But my love will go on
 Just as long as the river flows
 He will be your king but someday
 He may let you down
 Follow to the letter that my love is
 Real and what I found
 I offer it to you
 So leave me as I love you still
 And if he don't keep you warm
 You know I will
