The Lyrics…

I think about you

When I don’t want to

Dream about your smiling face

I keep trying not to love you

But I love you anyway

We should be together, together

Should be walking side by side

We should be together, together

Keeping each other satisfied

I have thought to come to know you

I’ve come to need your company

What will I do if I can’t have you

If I can’t have you

What will I do

We should be together, together

Should be walking side by side

We should be together, together

Keeping each other satisfied
