Song Pattern:
-------------
*Part A*
  There is not a river wide
*Part B*
  Not a mountain high
*PART A* (play 4 times)
  And neither sin nor evil
  Could change how I feel inside
  Could change how I feel inside
  Not all the strength of the ocean
*PART B*
  Not all the heat from the sun, from the sun
*PART C*
  No others have tried, I just can't deny
*PART A* (play twice)
  For me you are the one
  For me you are the one
*PART D* (play twice)
  But true love is priceless
  For true love we pay a price
*PART E*
  But there's nothing can keep me from loving you
  not fire, no not ice
  not fire, no not ice
*PART A*
  Like a hero or the champion
*PART B*
  You are the best, you're the best
*PART A* (play four times)
  Like religion or superstition
  With you I am blessed
  With you I am blessed
  Now the river may grow wider
*PART B*
  The mountains may reach past the sky
*PART C*
  And whether or not you feel same
*PART A* (play twice)
  My love shall never die
  My love shall never die
*PART D* (play twice)
  But true love is give and take
  True love is sacrifice
*PART E*
But there's nothing can keep me from loving you
Not fire no not ice
Not fire no not ice
