  • I gaze in your eyes now
    But you're not in sight
    Just a picture of someone
    I lie with each night
    Long may love live here
    You fill up my home
    And though you're not with me now
    I won't be alone

    Now wisdom is fine
    But the heart leads the way
    And nothing can change my memory
    Like a wise man I patiently wait

    No matter how long
    Human nature is cruel
    But all hope is gone
    If you don't act on
    The words of a fool

    Now times may be tough
    But we must survive
    And I'd rather be dead with you
    Than go on alive

    That's my one obsession
    My Christian belief
    For he who has loved and lost
    Then loved he shall be

    Now wisdom is fine
    But the heart leads the way
    And nothing can change my memories
    Like a wise man I patiently wait

    No matter how long
    Human nature is cruel
    But all hope is gone
    If you don't act on
    The words of a fool

    But all hope is gone
    If you don't act on
    The words of a fool Writer/s: Barry Alan Gibb
