Who'd a thought I'd wait so long to learn how to dance?
Who'd a thought I'd get as old as I am and still have another chance?
Who'd a thought I'd find a true love after livin' a life of hurt?
Then it all turned around thanks to you.

Who'd believe middle age would hit and so happy I could be?
Who'd a thought anyone so sweet would ever believe in me?
I would never have dreamed my self-esteem would come on so strong,
Then my life came alive thanks to you.

chorus
You're every great love song that I've ever heard.
We are every great pair of lovebirds.
Now the bad times ain't so bad, and the good times are all great,
Thanks to you, thanks to you,
You've made lovin' fun, thanks to you.

Your pure smile's worth more than silver,
And to hold you's worth more than gold.
Now the gray has turned to black and white,
And so clear my story's told.
Through the ages, throughout history, the mystery of love seldom found,
That elusive love is here thanks to you.

Words have yet to be created to express just how I feel.
There are no colors quite so vivid to show how this is real,
But the heart inside me beats away and makes me cherish every day,
And look forward to each next one thanks to you.
