So many times I made you cry
But, still you stay there, standing by
I don't know why you care for me
But, still I love you, Valerie

What makes you cling so close each day
What makes you always want to stay
And yet, I pray that you'll forgive me
You know I love you, Valerie

This song I dedicate to you
The words are old, but still so true
Forever, too, yes, they will be
For I love you, Valerie
