When I'm Next To You

Every morning I love waking up

When I’m next to you.

This beautiful life I’m making up

When I’m next to you.

My heart beats so fast

When I’m next to you.

I’m better than my past

When I’m next to you.


Playing with your hair and sighing

When I’m next to you.

Heart so full I can’t stop crying

When I’m next to you.

I can forget all my fears

When I’m next to you.

My hurts all disappear

When I’m next to you.


Dancing side by side, swaying

When I’m next to you.

Watching our kids outside, playing

When I’m next to you.

I can’t believe this life I get to live

When I’m next to you.

I give all my heart I have to give

When I’m next to you.


No one else can compare

When I’m next to you.

I look and sometimes stare

When I’m next to you.

Knowing I’m the luckiest man alive

When I’m next to you.

My love will never die…
