If we didn't know 
Another living soul
If it was just me and you

If there was no one here 
To tell you lies
Who would you listen to

And in our world
Such a perfect world
Without aggression and deceit

Lover, would you stay with me

~~~*1st Chorus*~~~
If you know me
You know everything
I've not betrayed you
Look inside your heart
You'll see
This is me talking to you
Your defender, your best friend
You should know what the truth is
That I'll love you to my end

If we were born 
Without the sounds of life
Surrounding us each day

Could you find a form
To tell me what you want
Convey it in some way

In a quiet world
Such a silent world
With no distractions grasping you

Lover, then what would you do

~~~*2nd Chorus*~~~
If you couldn't hear me
Not hear anything
But you could see me
Would you drink in everything
With my smile talking to you
As my body's moving in
Would you care for me to show you
That I'll love you to my end

Do you still crave
Your need for freedom
Desire to clutch your youth

If I'm in the way
You don't have to hurt me
Or invent some poor excuse

In a different world
Such a final world
You'd be committed holding me

Lover, will you set me free

You create it
The conclusion of the song
The final chorus, you will write 
Just don't take too long
I won't wait forever
 I won't sing this again
I'll never write another
But I'll love you to my end
