lyrics

Lady I want. Lady I could have, I could hold you close. I could cherish you till my last breath says goodbye and takes me home. Oh, how I wish that she might hear me sing, “Baby, you inspire me, leave me dreaming of a lifetime with a love that knows the stream, and guides my eyes always to the mouth of the river so I can pour out all of me.”

But darkness comes with twilight; the beauty of a sunset marred by fear of what it brings. I find the night might find me restless and steal away my dreams.

Lady I want. Lady I could have, I could hold you close. I could cherish you till my last breath says goodbye and takes me home. Do I want her to be happy? Do I want her to be free? God, how I wish I could give her to you and still have her for me. I don’t know what I want. I don’t know what I want. No, I know exactly what it is I want. It’s you there in my dreams.

But darkness comes with twilight; the beauty of a sunset marred by fear of what it brings. I find the night might find me restless and steal away my dreams.

Lady I want, I just wish that you would dream of me.
