You gave me back my soul again by showin' me
The laughter and the wonder in your eyes
Saved me from the shuttered man I used to be
Opened up the windows of my life

And the happiness you've given me for lovin' you
Is sweeter love and deeper every day
I can't stop the changes that you're growin' through
Or someone new from stealin' you away

Chorus:
So darlin' when it's time you can spread your wings
And I'll set you free - to fly away - and it's ok
Cause darlin' time changes everything
But it won't change me
I love you - oh... I love you

Inside of me you'll always be my valentine
I pray your freedom makes your dreams come through
As long as there's a heartbeat in this soul of mine
You'll know there's someone so in love with you

Chorus:
So darlin' when it's time you can spread your wings
And I'll set you free - to fly away - and it's ok
Cause darlin' time changes everything
But it won't change me
I love you - oh... I love you
