That this longing for you follows wherever I go
In the roaring traffic's boom 
In the silence of my lonely room 
I think of you, night and day,

Night and day, night and day
Under the hide of me
There's an oh such a hungry yearning burning inside of me
And it's torment won't be through 
Until you let me spend my life making love to you

Day and night, night and day
