Greatest Love Affair (Cash Johnny)

I dreamed I woke up and you were gone I reached out but no one was there I called your name and nobody answered And I wondered if I cry would you care I had said I love you so many times But they're just words that you hear people say And I never knew just how much I loved you Until suddenly you'd gone away Now who'd stand by me the way you did When I was weak it was you that made me strong And you had a way of touching my heart Like the words in a beautiful song Aw we had good times and we shared the bad So I'll take whatever comes Cause you were the best years of my life And we shared the cake and we shared the crumbs Then just before the hurt had built up in my heart To a mountain that I knew I could never climb I woke up I woke up to a beautiful world and you were there You were there all the time I love you America I love you America And if I sail a stormy sea Please be there to shelter me I love you America I love you America So just keep holdin' me close and I will care And we'll show the world that what we share Is still the greatest love affair And I love you America I love you
