I've spent my life
Lookin' for you
Findin' my way
Wasn't easy to do
But I knew there was you
All the while 
And it's been worth  Every mile

Love me and hide me
And kiss all the hurtin'
Of this world away
Hold me so close 
That I feel your heart beat
And don't ever wander away

 Mornings and evenings 
All were the same
 There was no music 
Till I heard your name
I knew when I saw you smile 
And now I can rest for a while 


And hold me so close 
That I feel your heart beat
And don't ever wander away

Love me and hide me

Till I feel your heart beat
