If I was the sun, way up there
I'd go with my love everywhere

I'll be the moon when the sun go down
To let you know I'm still around

That's how strong my love is, baby
That's how strong my love is

I'll be the weeping willow drowning in my tears
You can go swimming when you're here
I'll be the rainbow when the sun is gone
Wrap you in my colors and keep you warm

I'll be the ocean, so deep and wide
I'll dry the tears when you cry
I'll be the breeze when the storm is gone
To dry your eyes and keep you warm

Yes, that's how strong my love is, so deep and so wide
My love is
Yes it so strong, you can't get over it
It's so wide, you can't get around it

That's how strong my love is
Yeah it's so strong, it's so strong, it's so strong... yeah yeah yeah
That's how strong my love is - it's so strong, I want to tell you I can't say it how strong it is
