No one knows the side of you that I know
To hear you when they call
Because I know what to do

I just close my eyes and I'm with you
Is only a heartbeat away
I hold out my hand and I touch love
Keeping me warm night and day
Miles and miles of empty space in between us
But I won't be traveling forever
And do like I do
When I need you
And all that I so want to give you

But honey that's the heavy load that we bear
It's cold out, but hold out
When I need you
But I won't be traveling a lifetime
And do like I do
When I need you
And all that I so want to give you

I hold out my hand and I touch love
Keeping me warm night and day

Holding my hand out to you
