Lyrics

No one else will ever see how much faith you have in me,
Only fools would disagree that it's so,
Some people never know.

Like a fool I'm far away,
Ev'ry night I hope and pray
I'll be coming home to stay and it's so
Some people never know.

Some people can sleep at night time,
Believing that love is a lie.
I'm only a person like you, love,
And who in the world can be right
All the right time,
I know I was wrong,
Make me right, right.

Only love can stand the test,
Only you outshine the rest,
Only fools take second best, and it's so,
Some people never know.
