There was a time I didn’t know you
the funny way you showed you cared
You made it hard for me to love you
a fragile heart can find that hard to bear

Your will is made of steel and mine of iron
I had to fight to show you just how strong
You toughened me to help me, but I grew so hard
What love I found kept turning out all wrong

I know it’s hard for you to show the way you feel
and just as hard for you to say
I had to grow so fast to find a way to see
I dug so deep inside for love you seemed to hide
It took some years to see it’s just your way

Your life of work was what you had to offer
You thought that only hard-earned dreams came true
You built yourself a castle by the water
And I watched you find a peace you never knew

I know it’s hard for you to show the way you feel
and just as hard for you to say
Though we’ve had some battles that have torn me half apart
I never would give in until we both could win
Fighting off your heart was just your way

I know it’s hard for you to show the way you feel
and just as hard for you to say
The times that you were there for me as no one else could be
When I took too deep a fall, it was you I went to call
To be there when you’re needed was your way, it’s just… your way
