If I spent the day writing down the ways your love has stamped its shiny on my heart
I'd run out of time searching for a rhyme
cuz words can only go so far
there's so much more to who you are
so much more to what you mean to me
our love is just the perfect melody.
Ba da da dum…

I could never sing of every little thing
that makes me leave these chocolates at your door
They're overplayed cliches
faulty serenades, 'cause words are only black and white
I never get my thoughts quite right
but i could sing of you in every key...
our love is just the perfect melody

Could it really be? (oh you are everything I need)
and life is beautiful with you beside me (oh I'm done with all of these silly games)
Each and every day in perfect harmony
a simple song for you and me

Darling never change
sing to me every day
cuz words can only go so far
there's so much more to who you are
and I could sing of you in every key
This music sung in harmony
is sweeter than a symphony
our love is just the perfect melody.

Ba da da dum…
