I close my eyes at night Wondering where would I be without you in my life Everything I did was just a bore Everywhere I went it seems I'd been there before But you brightened up for me all of my days With a love so sweet in so many ways I want to stop and thank you baby I. want to stop and thank you baby. How sweet it is to be loved by you How sweet it is to be loved by you. You were better to me than I've been to myself For me, there's you and there ain't nobody else
