  • I got a heart and I got a soul
    Believe me I will use them both
    We made a start
    Be it a false one, I know
    Baby, I don't want to feel alone

    So kiss me where I lay down
    My hands press to your cheeks
    A long way from the playground

    I have loved you since we were 18
    Long before we both thought the same thing
    To be loved, to be in love
    All I can do is say that these arms were made for holding you
    I wanna love like you made me feel
    When we were 18

    We took a chance
    God knows we tried
    Yet all along, I knew we'd be fine

    So pour me a drink oh love,
    Let's split the night wide open and we'll see everything
    We can live in love in slow motion, motion, motion

    So kiss me where I lay down
    My hands press to your cheeks
    A long way from the playground

    I have loved you since we were 18
    Long before we both thought the same thing
    To be loved and to be in love
    And all I can do is say that these arms are made for holding you, ooh
    And I wanna love like you made me feel
    When we were 18

    When we were 18
    Oh lord, when we were 18

    Kiss me where I lay down
    My hands press to your cheeks
    A long way from the playground

    I have loved you since we were 18
    Long before we both thought the same thing

    To be loved and to be in love
    And all I can do is say that these arms were made for holding you
    And I want a love like you made me feel
    When we were 18
    I want a love like you made me feel
    When we were 18
    I want a love like you made me feel
