Ev'rything went wrong, and the whole day long,
And feel so blue.
For the longest while, I'd forgot to smile,
Then I met you.
Now that my blue days have passed,
Now that I've found you at last.
I'll be loving you always, with a love that's true always.
When the things you planned need a helping hand,
I will understand always, always.
Days may not be fair always;
That's when I'll be there always.
Not for just an hour, not for just a day,
Not for just a year, but always.
Dreams will all come true growing old with you,
And time will fly.
Caring each day more than the day before,
The spring rolls by.
Then when the springtime has gone,
Then will my love linger on.
