Once upon a time I met you

I fell head over heels and I knew

We needed to be together

Come both fair or stormy weather

We’ve had more than our share of ups and downs

An excessive frequency of frowns

 

A life together is a long journey

At times temptation could have turned me

But we always seem to get through

With a degree of deja vu

At times we’ve made soap opera look tame

But we still stand together all the same

 

CHORUS:

You try to drive me away

And then you beg me to stay

Well anyway

I still need you

Despite the things that we say

You know that come what may

It’s no clich√©

I still need you

 

Real life ain’t like moving pictures

Relationships aren’t perfect mixtures

A marriage is no fairytale

They take hard work and some will fail

Life is like a rollercoaster ride

But we ride together with a sense of pride

 

(CHORUS)

 

After so many years and all that we’ve been through

It reassures to know you still need me

And I still need you

 

Life is like a rollercoaster ride

But we ride together with a sense of pride

 

(CHORUS)

 

I still need you

I still need you

I still need you
