You were always there, By my side. Night and day, Through it all. Baby, come what may. Swept away on a wave of emotion, Oh, we're caught in the eye of the storm. And whenever you smile, I can hardly believe that you're mine, Believe that you're mine. This love is unbreakable. It's unmistakable. And each time I look in your eyes, I know why.This love is untouchable. A feeling my heart just can't deny. Each time I look in your eyes, Oh, baby, I know why This love is unbreakable. Shared the laughter, Shared the tears. We both know We'll go on from here. 'Cause together we are strong. In my arms: That's where you belong. I've been touched by the hands of an angel. I've been blessed by the power of love. And whenever you smile, I can hardly believe that you're mine. This love is unbreakable. Through fire and flame. When all this is over, Our love still remains. This love is unbreakable. (Lyrics by Westlife) Washegari Sunday, Diyam tayi baccin safenta sosai sannan ta tashi. Tana mikewa ta jawo wayarta ta tura masa message cewa tana gayyatarsa breakfast.
