Lyrics for "TOGETHER" by Emam:
In your eyes I see all the light you're beaming.
In your heart I feel all the love you're giving.
It's so lovely we're together, I will cherish this forever.
I'm so happy we're together, you can count on me forever.
In your eyes I see all your lovely faces.
In your heart I feel vast and open spaces.
It's so lovely we're together, I will cherish this forever.
I'm so happy we're together, you can count on me forever.
In your eyes I see the sunshine, in your heart I feel the moon.
I will cherish this forever, I will love you to the moon.
I will love you to the moon. I will love you to the moon!
