In all the years that we have been together
With chocolates and sweets I tried to woo
The necklaces and rings would number dozens
The roses that I bought would fill a room.
But gold and silver tarnish as time passes
And chocolate melts in an afternoon.
The roses' perfume easily disperses
And they don't help to demonstrate
The permanence of what I feel for you.
There's so much that is transient around us
Relationships can flicker and can die.
The children come, but soon to leave they're eager
But all along you have been at my side.
So I looked around for something that is solid
To show you how my love cannot be moved.
But nothing in a shop could ever help me
For thoughts no shape or colour have
My feelings no material can prove.
And then at last I came to the conclusion
The places I was looking were all wrong.
The proper gift has no material substance
So I looked into my heart, and found this song.
For every song, once written, is immortal
And in a song I find it hard to lie.
So even if I'm called to higher portals
You'll know that from this moment on
Just like my love, this song will never die.
