lyrics

I Will Always Love You (When I'm Alone)
©2016 Alice Bierhorst

There’s no honor in deception
But the heart can not be bound
For every rule there’s an exception
And a reason to be found

I can never say the words
You can read them in my eyes
For fear of being overheard
I can only whisper lies

I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU WHEN I’M ALONE
I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU THIS WORLD IS NOT OUR HOME
I CAN NEVER LOVE YOU IN COMPANY
BUT I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU WHEN I’M ALONE

Now the leaves are slowly turning
As the summer slips away
But the heart will keep on yearning
For the will to find a way

CHORUS

The night may be long
And the storm may be strong
I won’t steer us wrong
We’ll sail clear to the end
