    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
