With all of my heart, I know I could love you
But with all of my soul, I'm driftin' away
With all of my mind, I know you could save me from myself and anything else
With all of my strength, I wanna reach out for you
With every breath, I call out your name
With every step, I just wanna turn around and say
Baby, make it okay

But I'm so afraid
That you've forgiven me one too many times
And I'm so afraid
To give my heart again just to have a change of mind
And I'm not quite sure that you can trust me
And I would hate to have you find me again
Baby, like the wind, driftin' away

It blows and nobody knows where it's going to
(I'm driftin' away)
It blows and nobody know what it's gonna do

With all of my heart, I know I disappointed you
And although I'm real sorry
I don't know how to save this time
But if I would lose you
I know I would go completely out of my mind
I'm running out of time

And I'm so afraid that you've forgiven me one too many times
And I'm so afraid to give my heart again just to have a change of mind
And I'm not quite sure that you can trust me
And I would hate to have you find me again
Baby, like the wind, driftin' away

It blows and nobody knows where it's going to
(Driftin' away)
It blows and nobody knows what it's gonna do
(You see my heart at night)
At night you can hear it cry as the tear drops fall from Heaven's eyes
(Fallin' down)
And somehow you know it's true these tears that fall are fallin' for you
(Fallin' for you)

It blows and nobody knows where's it going to
(Fallin' down)
It blows and nobody knows what it's gonna do
At night you can hear it cry as the tear drops fall from Heaven's eyes
And somehow you know it's true these tears that fall are for you
