(Richard Carpenter & John Bettis)

I have always been a dreamer, 
followed vision of my own.
I was born to belong to the lines of a song 
and make them my home.

I believe in happy endings, 
though I've only known a few.
For as rare as they are like a bright falling star, 
I found one in you.

Sometimes all the world can seem so friendless, 
and the road ahead so endless, 
and the dream so far away.  

Sometimes when I'm almost to surrender, 
and I stop and I remember
I have you to save my day.

Often my imagination has me reaching out too far.
When I fell, you were there 
with your hand in the air, 
you knew from the start.

Sometimes after all you've done to save me, 
through the love you freely gave me, 
ev'ry step along the way.   

Sometimes people ask what keeps me goin', 
and in truth it come from knowin'
I have you to save my day.

Sometimes feeling helpless when I held you, 
wishing words would come to tell you 
I have you to save my day.
