Song Lyrics - Through The Years

I can't remember when you weren't there,
When I didn't care, for anyone but you.
I swear, we've been through everything there is,
Can't imagine anything we've missed
Can't imagine anything, the two of us can't do.

Through the years, you've never let me down,
You've turned my life around.
The sweetest days I've found, I've found with you.
Through the years I've never been afraid,
I've loved the life we've made
And I'm so glad I've stayed, 
Right here with you, through the years.

I can't remember what I used to do,
Who I trusted who, I listened to before.
I swear, you've taught me everything I know
I can't imagine needing someone so.
But through the years it seems to me
I need you more and more

Through the years, 
Through all the good and bad,
I knew how much we had, 
I've always been so glad to be with you.
Through the years, 
It's better everyday,
You've kissed my tears away,
As long as it's okay, 
I'll stay with you, through the years.

Through the years when everything went wrong,
Together we were strong,
I know that I belong right here with you
Through the years. I never had a doubt
We'd always work things out.
I've learned what love's about
By loving you, through the years.

Through the years, 
You've never let me down
You turned my life around
The sweetest days I've found, I've found with you.
Through the years, it's better every day,
You've kissed my tears away,
As long as it's okay
I'll stay with you, through the years.
