Lyrics

I can't believe the things I see
They haven't much to do with me
But I'm content to know that we're together

I wouldn't say it if it wasn't true
Take my hand 'cause I am just like you

Nobody knows what is to be
No crystal ball through which to see
But I'm content to know that we're together
Yes, I'm content to know that we're together

I wouldn't say it if it wasn't true
Take my hand 'cause I am just like you

I wouldn't say it if it wasn't true
Take my hand 'cause I am just like
I wouldn't say it if it wasn't true
Take my hand 'cause I am just like you
