Lyrics
Hey baby
I'm looking for you
Drifting on a memory
Ain't no place I'd rather be
Than with you, loving you
Day will make a way for night
All we'll need is candlelight
And a song soft and long, well

Glad to be here alone
With a lover unlike no other
Safe to see a new horizon
Slowly coming into view

[Chorus]
I want to be living for the love of you
All that I'm giving is for the love of you

Lovely as a ray of sun
That touches me when the morning comes
Feels good to me, my love and me
Smoother than a gentle breeze
Flowing through my mind with ease
Soft as can be well when you're loving me

Love to be
Riding the waves of your love
Enchanted with your touch
It seems to me
We can sail together in and out of mystery

[Chorus]

Paradise I have within
Can't feel insecure again
You're the key and this I see
Now and then I lose my way
Using words to try and say
What I feel yeah love is real ooh
I might as well
Sign my name on a card
Which could say it better
Time will tell
Cause it seems that I've done
Just about all that I can do do do

[Chorus]
