Don't go trying some new fashion
Don't change the color of your hair

I never want to work that hard
I just want someone that I can talk to
I want you just the way you are.

What will it take 'till you believe in me

I said I love you, and that's forever
And this I promise from the heart
I couldn?t love you any better
