Jack was reveling in the freedom of being able to dance with Daniel out in the open, with no one thinking the slightest thing of it. Daniel put their foreheads together. "Turnabout's fair play," he murmured. "I requested a song."
Jack could hear the opening strains, but couldn't place it. "Will you sing for me?" he asked, knowing Daniel could sing.
"Just softly," Daniel whispered. He put his lips near Jack's ear as they swayed together. I can't remember when you weren't there, he sang in tones so soft only Jack could hear him, when I didn't care, for anyone but you. I swear, he pulled back and smiled, we've been through everything there is, can't imagine anything we've missed, can't imagine anything, the two of us can't do. He leaned back in.
Through the years, you've never let me down, you've turned my life around. The sweetest days I've found, I've found with you. Through the years I've never been afraid; I've loved the life we've made, and I'm so glad I've stayed, right here with you, through the years. Jack felt a kiss near his ear, and then Daniel pulled back again and looked him in the eye, shaking his head slightly in wonder.
I can't remember what I used to do, who I trusted, who I listened to before. I swear, you've taught me everything I know, can't imagine needing someone so. But through the years it seems to me, I need you more and more. Daniel smiled. Through the years, through all the good and bad, I knew how much we had; I've always been so glad to be with you. Through the years, it's better everyday, you've kissed my tears away. As long as it's okay, I'll stay with you, through the years.
Daniel snuck a kiss on Jack's lips, and then pressed their cheeks together again. Jack swallowed hard. Daniel's breath tickled at his ear. Through the years when everything went wrong, together we were strong, I know that I belong right here with you. Through the years, I never had a doubt, we'd always work things out. I've learned what love's about by loving you, through the years.
Jack couldn't wait any longer; he pulled back and captured Daniel's lips, and Kenny Rogers had to sing the rest of the song by himself.

Author's Chapter Notes:
I myself hate songfic, so why write it? I have no idea. I don't know, it's a reception. I tried to work it in well, and add humor, but maybe you'll hate it anyway.
