All My Life


Let me take you down to the river side
To the water's constant flow
Something in the air, feel it everywhere
Hold me as my fears begin to grow
Take a look around, see the turning tide
We are walking where the cold winds blow
I'd be so lost here without you
You alone can make my troubles go

But when you're near me
All my troubles fade
When you're here with me
All my worries fade away


The winds are changing, turning cold
Blowing strong and before long
Hopes are fading, life is growing cold
And what was right seems suddenly so wrong
But when I hold your hand and look into your eyes
See the sparkle of a million stars above
You give me a word, you give me a smile
Let me find a haven in the land of love

But when you're near me
All my troubles fade
When you're here with me
All my worries fade away


A fear like mad, a tear so sad
Hold me when the night is calling
Hold me when the rain is falling
Hold me, hold me, tonight


Feel your body here beside me
Out of the dark, into the light
Feel so safe inside, got a place to hide
Hold me in your arms tonight
Girl, I love you all my life
Taking comfort in the loving words you say
You will guide my way, you will light my day
You can make the dark times fade away


And when you're near me
All my troubles fade
When you're here with me
All my worries fade away

It ain't easy
But with you beside
We can make it right
Hold me tonight
