Lyrics verse:
YOU LOOK AT ME
AND WONDER,
YOU LOOK AT ME
AND DOUBT,
DARLING,
YOUR EYES ARE ASKING,
WILL THE FLAME BURN OUT?
NO ONE
IS SURE OF SUNSHINE,
NO ONE
IS SURE OF DAWN
BUT I AM SURE
MY LOVE
WILL LIVE ON AND ON!

Chorus:
I'LL BE TIRED OF YOU
WHEN STARS ARE TIRED
OF GLEAMING,
WHEN I AM TIRED
OF DREAMING
THEN I'LL BE TIRED OF YOU!
THIS I KNOW IS TRUE:
WHEN WINDS ARE TIRED
OF BLOWING,
WHEN GRASS IS TIRED
OF GROWING
THEN I'LL BE TIRED OF YOU.

BEYOND THE YEARS
TILL DAY IS NIGHT,
TILL WRONG IS RIGHT,
TILL BIRDS REFUSE TO SING,
BEYOND THE YEARS
THE ECHO OF MY ONLY LOVE
WILL STILL BE WHISPERING,
WHISPERING!

IF MY THROBBING HEART
SHOULD EVER START REPEATING
THAT IT IS TIRED OF BEATING,
THEN I'LL BE TIRED OF YOU!
