September 1980 this song was released. The same month Lou came to visit me here (Honolulu), 5 months before we got married. At the time, after being apart for a while while I was doing Uncle Sam’s bidding and we were waiting for the right time to get married, I got to Hawaii and started thinking hmmm maybe staying single might work better while I check out what Hawaii has to offer.
Well, no sooner had I hinted at that with her did she show up in town. We spent a few awesome weeks together, and my idea of living the single life was no more. And this song was on the airwaves, and forever etched itself onto my mind’s memory of this time. The lyrics all ring, and still ring, true and accurate.
I sing this to her everyday in my heart and soul, and have done so since that time.
I’m your knight in shining armor and I love you
You have made me what I am, and
I am yours
There’s so many ways I want to say I love you
Let me hold you in my arms forever more
You have gone and made me such a fool
And I’m so lost in your love
And oh, we belong together
Won’t you believe in my song?
For so many years
I thought I’d never find you
You have come into my life and
Made me whole
Let me wake to see you each and every morning
Let me hear you whisper softly
In my ear
And in my eyes (In my eyes)
I see no one else but you (I see no one else but you)
There’s no other love like our love
And, oh, girl I’ll always want you near me
I’ve waited for you for so long
Your love’s the only love I need
Oh, and beside me is where
I want you to be (I want you to be)
‘Cause, my love
There’s somethin’ I want you to know
You’re the love of my life
You’re my lady
