  • As around the sun the earth knows she's revolving
    And the rosebuds know to bloom in early May
    Just as hate knows love's the cure
    You can rest your mind assure
    That I'll be loving you Always

    As now can't reveal the mistery of tomorrow
    But in passing will grow older every day
    Just as all is born is new
    Do you know what I say is true
    That I'll be loving you Always

    Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky
    Always
    Until the ocean covers every mountain high
    Always
    Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea
    Always
    Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream

    Did you know that true love asks for nothing
    Her acceptance is the way we pay
    Did you know that life has given love a guarantee
    To last through forever and another day

    Just as time knew to move on since the beginning
    And the seasons know exactly when to change
    Just as kindness knows no shame
    Know through all your joy and pain
    That I'll be loving you Always

    As today I know I'm living but tomorrow
    Could make me the past but that I mustn't fear
    For I'll know deep in my mind
    The love of me I've left behind
    Cause I'll be loving you Always

    Until the day is night and night becomes the day
    Always
    Until the trees and sea just up and fly away
    Always
    Until the day that 8x8x8 is 4
    Always
    Until the day that is the day that are no more
    Did you know you're loved by somebody?
    Until the day the earth starts turning right to left
    Always
    Until the earth just for the sun denies itself
    I'll loving you forever
    Until dear Mother Nature says her work is through
    Always
    Until the day that you are me and I am you
    Always
    Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky
    Always
    Until the ocean covers every mountain high
    Always

    We all know sometimes life's hates and troubles
    Can make you wish you were born in another time and space
    But you can bet your life times that and twice its double
    That God knew exactly where he wanted you to be placed
    So make sure when you say you're in it but not of it
    You're not helping to make this earth a place sometimes called Hell
    Change your words into truths and then change that truth into love
    And maybe our children's grandchildren
    And their great-great grandchildren will tell

    I'll be loving you
    Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky
    Loving you
    Until the ocean covers every mountain high
    Loving you
    Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea
    Loving you
    Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream
    Be loving you
    Until the day is night and night becomes the day
    Loving you
    Until the trees and seas up, up and fly away
    Loving you
    Until the day that 8x8x8x8 is 4
    Loving you
    Until the day that is the day that are no more
    Loving you
    Until the day the earth starts turning right to left
    Be loving you
    Until the earth just for the sun denies itself
    Loving you
    Until dear Mother Nature says her work is through
    Loving you
    Until the day that you are me and I am you
    Now ain't that loving you
    Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky
    Ain't that loving you
    Until the ocean covers every mountain high
    And I've got to say Always
    Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea
    Always
    Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream
    Always
    Until the day is night and night becomes the day
    Always
    Until the trees and sea just up and fly away
    Always
    Until the day that 8x8x8 is 4
    Always
    Until the day that is the day that are no more
    Always
    Until the day the earth starts turning right to left
    Always
    Until the earth just for the sun denies itself

    Always
    Until dear Mother Nature says her work is through
    Always
    Until the day that you are me and I am you

    Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky
    Until the ocean covers every mountain high
    Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea
    Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream
    Until the day is night and night becomes the day
    Until the trees and sea just up and fly away
    Until the day that 8x8x8 is 4
    Until the day that is the day that are no more
    Until the day the earth starts turning right to left
    Until the earth just for the sun denies itself
    Until dear Mother Nature says her work is through
    Until the day that you are me and I am you
