  • Oh, you can't say nothing to the pouring rain
    And you can't say nothing till there's hope again
    Say, oh my baby, you must never change
    For we're only the ones we love

    And I've stood stolen by the pauper's heart
    Yes, I've stood stolen where the aching starts
    But the way you watched it's a life apart

    For we're only the ones we love
    Only, only, you're the only one who could say
    I could love this way, I could love this way

    Oh, you can't get even with this kind of pain
    But to see you steady brings the calm, again
    Say, oh my baby, let them stay the same
    For we're only the ones we love

    And they've seen something which I'll never see
    But I dreamed something when you fell for me
    Yeah, I dreamed something which soars above

    For we're only the ones we love, only the ones we love
    Yes, love, love, this love, love

    Oh, I get tired and I get old
    But to see you steady brings a flood of gold
    Say, oh, my baby, I've been taught and told

    We're only the ones we love, only the ones we love
    Love, love, this love
