My love
Don't throw away my love

You are to me my greatest fantasy
Night after night
I wanted you to hold me tight
I want to be with you
You can make my dream come true
Only you can make my heart and soul brand new

My love
Don't throw away my love

We can have an ever lasting love

I want to be all that you want me to be
Why can't you see just how much you mean to me?
I want to be with you
You can make my dream come true
Only you can make my heart and soul brand new

My love
Don't throw away my love
My love
