  • She's got your eyes, she's got my nose
    And I get high just watching her grow
    We always dreamed we'd live in a castle
    Oh, but we're in the same old shack
    Sometimes we get into a hassle
    But we always take each other back
    This old world seems to be in a hurry
    But darlin' we'll just keep on takin' our time

    'Cause we're livin' such a sweet life
    Oh what a neat life
    Sharin' my love with you
    We're livin' such a sweet life
    Oh what a neat life
    Makin' our dreams come true
    We're makin' our dreams come true

    You are my love, you are my life
    And I get high just holding you tight
    We always dreamed we'd make a lot of money
    I don't mind being poor
    'Cause when you make love to me, honey
    I couldn't ask for any more
    All our friends seem to be in a hurry
    But darlin' we'll just keep on takin' our time

    'Cause we're livin' such a sweet life
    Oh what a neat life
    Sharin' my love with you
    We're livin' such a sweet life
    Oh what a neat life
    Makin' our dreams come true
    We're makin' our dreams come true Writer/s: PAUL DAVIS, SUSAN COLLINS
