In Love I Abide

well you started a commotion when you walked in the place
I was flooded with emotion when I first saw your face
So I had to find out if there was a chance we could be
But I couldn’t understand how you could only want me

and as time went by my love grew stronger than before
but I never dreamt I’d get what I was wishing for

so don’t be afraid
to let your feelings show
because our love has stayed
and I won’t let you go

in love I abide
for to love I am bound
and I’ll stay by your side
with this love that I’ve found

well you parted all the people when you walked in the room
when i saw your ice blue eyes i knew you would be mine soon
but i couldn’t understand how i fell for you so fast
and i only hoped our feelings for each other would last

well do you believe that fate could make us feel this way
because i know that a love like this is gonna stay

so don’t be afraid
to let your feelings show
because our love has stayed
and I won’t let you go

in love I abide
for to love I am bound
and I’ll stay by your side
with this love that I’ve found

###

and as time went by my love grew stronger than before
but I never dreamt I’d get what I was wishing for

so don’t be afraid
to let your feelings show
because our love has stayed
and I won’t let you go

in love I abide
for to love I am bound
and I’ll stay by your side
with this love that I’ve found

in love I abide
for to love I am bound
and I’ll stay by your side
with this love that I’ve found
