Lady in My Life

(Rod Temperton)

1st Verse
There’ll be no darkness tonight
Lady our love will shine
Just put your trust in my heart
And meet me in paradise
You’re every wonder in this world to me
A treasure time won’t steal away

Chorus
So let me keep you warm
Through the shadows of the night
Let me touch you with my love
I can make you feel so right
just come into my arms
While the world goes spinnin’ by
And in the glow of candlelight
I will show you you’re the lady in my life

2nd Verse
Don’t need no fortune or fame
I just want you close to me
No time for castles in space
Or livin’ in make believe
I’d trade it all for just a rainy day
As long as I know you’ll be there

Chorus
So listen to my heart
Lay your body next to mine
Let me fill you with my dreams
I can make you feel so right
And baby through the years
Gonna love you more each day
So I promise you tonight
That you’ll always be the lady in my life

Bridge
Lay back in my tenderness
Let’s make this a night we won’t forget
Girl, I need your sweet caress
Reach out to a fantasy
Two hearts in the beat of ecstasy
Come to me

Chorus
And I will keep you warm
Through the shadows of the night
Let me touch you with my love
I can make you feel so right
And baby through the years
Even when we’re old and gray
I will love you more each day
‘Cause you will always be the lady in my life
