Baby, when our hearts awoke
Think of all the rules we broke
In the name of love, we hoped
Little did we know

Darling, all the time we spent
Ooh, ignoring all the consequences
And hiding from big evidence
Hoping things would change

But the yearning grew
Like the loneliness of a castaway
To be near to you was the only thing
In my mind each day
Keeping me alive
'Til your rescue came
Honey, you mean everything to me

[Chorus]
You ought to know by now
Love is everything to me
You ought to know by now
Only love can bring happiness

Wishful thinking spent in vain
What to lose and what to gain
All the guilt and all the pain
Seemed to come away

But baby when our hearts awoke
Oh, think of all the rules
We broke
In the name of love, we spoke
Little did we know

But the hope was there
Like a ray of sun on a cloudy day
Any change from impossibility
To the only way
Love can conquer all
And it's here to stay
Honey, you mean everything to me

[Chorus]

(You ought to know by now)
(You ought to know by now)
(You ought to know by now)
