ALWAYS
Everything went wrong
And the whole day long
I’d feel so blue.
For the longest while
I’d forget to smile.
Then I met you.
Now that my blue days have passed- 
Now that I’ve found you at last-
 
I’ll be loving you Always
With a love that’s true Always
When the things you’ve planned
Need a helping hand
I will understand Always, Always.
 
Days may not be fair Always
That’s when I’ll be there Always
Not for just an hour Not for just a day
Not for just a year, but Always.
 
Dreams will all come true growing old with you and time will fly.
Caring each day more than the day before till spring rolls by
Then when the Springtime has gone, Then will my love linger on.
 
I’ll be loving you, Always
With a love that’s true, Always
When the things you’ve planned, need a helping hand
I will understand Always, Always.
 
Days may not be fait Always,
That’s when I’ll be there, Always.
Not for just an hour,
Not for just a day.
Not for just a year.
But Always!
