the ties that bind lyrics – brook benton

– suffolk marketing-smi 2
– peak billboard position # 37 in 1960
– words and music by vincent a. corso and clyde otis
knowing you stand by me through good and bad
makes all the difference in my life
and day by day, sweetheart, i find
these are the ties that bind
the little things you do that please me so
aww, the way you always understand
when simple joys bring peace of mind
these are the ties that bind
you’re all i need to see me through
can i say more than this, my love?
i live just for your kiss, my love
i live just for your kiss, my love
forever and a day, my love will live
mmm, the flame of love will never die
so heart and soul please say you’re mine
held by the ties that bind
(these are the ties that bind)
