I DONT GET MANY THINGS RIGHT THE FIRST TIME
IN FACT I AM TOLD THAT A LOT
NOW I KNOW ALL THE WRONG TURNS
THE STUMBLES AND FALLS BROUGHT ME HERE

AND WHERE WAS I BEFORE THE DAY
THAT I FIRST SAW YOUR LOVELY FACE
NOW I SEE IT EVERYDAY
AND I KNOW

THAT I AM, I AM, I AM
THE LUCKIEST

WHAT IF I'D BEEN BORN
FIFTY YEARS BEFORE YOU
IN A HOUSE ON THE STREET WHERE YOU LIVED
MAYBE I'D BE OUTSIDE AS YOU PASSED ON YOUR BIKE
WOULD I KNOW

AND IN A WIDE SEA OF EYES
I'D SEE ONE PAIR THAT I RECOGNIZE
AND I KNOW

CHORUS

I LOVE YOU MORE THAN I HAVE
EVER FOUND A WAY TO SAY TO YOU

NEXT DOOR THERES AN OLD MAN
WHO LIVED TO HIS NINETIES
AND ONE DAY PASSED AWAY IN HIS SLEEP
AND HIS WIFE SHE STAYED FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS
AND PASSED AWAY

I'M SORRY I KNOW THATS A STRANGE WAY TO TELL YOU
THAT I KNOW WE BELONG
THAT I KNOW
THAT I AM ETC
