(nickolas ashford/valerie simpson)

Every star has a twinkle
Every palm has a wrinkle
Every leaf comes from a tree
I would agree

So if everything is made up of two
And the sky really needs the blue
For my other half
I'll settle for you

Every future has a past
Every first has a last
Every night has a day
Come what may

So if everything is made up of two
Whether it be old or new
For my other half
I'll settle for you

Who wants to be like a sea without a shore
The love just drifting forever more
Every smile has a frown
All you gotta do is turn it upside down
Every house has a door
Of that I'm sure

So if everything is made up of two
I think it would be best if you know
For my other half
I'll settle for you
Don't you know, I'll settle for you
I'll settle for you
If I had to settle, baby
I'll settle for you
Don't you know, I'll settle for you
