Lyrics

The Real Thing (Album Version) - Kenny Loggins

Amanda I know what you're thinking

 

You and I have much to say

 

And you've been making you crazy

 

Trying to understand

 

But it's impossible at your age

 

I know I said I'll always try

 

But you're going to bed alone again tonight

 

And you lie there in the dark and wonder why

 

I did it for you and the boys

 

Because love should teach you joy

And not the imitation

 

That your mama and daddy tried to show you

 

I did it for you and for me

And because I still believe

 

There's only one thing

You can never give up

Or ever compromise on

And that's the Real Thing you need in love

 

You're so afraid your life is over

 

And nothing I can say can change your mind

 

How can anybody be so selfish

 

And treat you all so cruel

 

Go on and scream at me and cry

 

I'll always hold you in my soul

 

And I'm never going to leave you all alone

 

But your daddy doesn't live here anymore

I did it for you and the boys

Because love should teach you joy

 

And not the imitation

 

That your mama and daddy tried to show you

 

I did it for you and for me

 

And because I still believe

 

There's only one thing

 

That you can never give up

Never compromise on

And that's the real thing you need in love

 

Everybody's got a boat upon the ocean

 

Not everybody's sailing out to sea

 

And is there someone there for me

 

I'm ready to believe

 

I did it for you and the boys

 

Because love should teach you joy

 

And not the imitation

 

That your mama and daddy tried to show you

 

I did it for you and for me

 

And because I still believe

There's only one thing

 

That you can never give up

Never compromise on

 

And that's the real thing you need in love
