The Real Thing

In the style of

Kenny Loggins

Lyrics

amanda i know
what you're thinking
you and i
have much to say
and you've been
making you crazy
trying to understand

but it's impossible
at your age
i know i said
i'll always try
but you're
going to bed
alone again tonight

and you lie there
in the dark
and wonder why
ah ah aye ah ah aye
ah ah aye ah ah aye
ah ah aye

i did it for you
and the boys
because love
should teach you joy
and not the imitation
that your
mama and daddy
tried to show you

i did it for you
and for me
and because
i still believe
there's only
one thing

that you
can never give up
never
compromise on
and that's
the real thing
you need in love

you're so afraid
your life is over
and nothing
i could say
can change your mind

how could anybody
be so selfish
and treat you
all so cruel
go on and scream
at me and cry

i'll always hold
you in my soul
and i'm never
gonna leave you
all alone

but your daddy
doesn't live here
anymore
oh oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh

i did it for you
and the boys
because love
should teach you joy
and not the imitation
that your
mama and daddy
tried to show you

i did it for you
and for me
and because
i still believe
there's only one thing

that you
can never give up
never
compromise on
and that's
the real thing
you need in love

everybody's
got a boat upon
the ocean
not everybody's
sailing out to sea
and is there someone
there for me
i'm ready to believe

oh
oh oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh

i did it for you
and the boys
because love should
teach you joy
and not the imitation
that your
mama and daddy
tried to show you

i did it for you
and for me
and because
i still believe
there's only one thing

that you
can never give up
never
compromise on
and that's
the real thing
you need in love

huh huh huh
huh huh huh
huh
