[Verse 1]

It's been a long long long time

How could I ever have lost you

When I loved you?

[Verse 2]

It took a long long long time

Now I'm so happy I found you

How I love you


So many years I was searching,

So many tears I was wasting, oh

[Verse 3]

Now I can see you, be you

How can I ever misplace you

How I want you

Oh I love you

You know that I need you

Oh I love you
