lyrics

Today it's so different when you find someone to love
You find yourself wondering if they love you quite enough
But I want to tell you that it's real
They just can't imagine how we carry on this way
That you're at home working
While I'm living far away
But somehow we know it that it's real

It's real like the summer, it's real like the fall
It's real like the sun shining down on us all
It's real like tomorrow, it's real like today
It's real like these words that I have taken so long to say

I've been wanting to write this song since that day in '68
But darlin' the words wouldn't come, now I hope it's not too late
We've been through almost everything that a soul should have to face
There's something special here that time can not erase

I don't want to tell ya that we haven't made mistakes
But when love is the question you must give as well as take
And I want to tell you that it's real

It's real like the summer, it's real like the fall
It's real like the sun shining down on us all
It's real like tomorrow, it's real like today
It's real like these words that I have taken so long to say
