lyrics

I traveled all around the world, sailed the seven seas,
always searching for that missing part of me.

I took myself to foreign lands, walked on crowded streets,
to learn the colors of the human tapestry.

And somewhere on the mountaintop that scraped the evening sky
I heard the lonely howling wind echoing my soul with its cry,
singin’ why, why, why, oh why..

(‘cause) All I want is a hand to hold, a place to come in from the cold night air,
someone to welcome me home.
Maybe what I need is you.

I took the quickest ship I found, over the clouds we flew,
and the days and nights were only sides of you.

We landed on the runway and the rain it seemed like dew,
for in the crowd yours was the only face I knew.

And like a dear familiar place, seen for the first time,
I drank deep of your water and it tasted to me like wine,
oh sweet, sweet love of mine..

(‘cause) All I want is a hand to hold, a place to come in from the cold night air,
someone to welcome me home.
Maybe what I need is you.

I know we will have trouble, yes it’s true – me and you
but we’ll always be together, no matter what we go through.
I am yours, you are mine – eternity will right the wrongs of time... but for now..

All I want is a hand to hold, a place to come in from the cold night air,
someone to welcome me home.
Maybe what I need is you.
