Lyrics

Thunder crashed as I hurried down the street
With my hands in my pockets, the wind blew hard
Still, I knew deep in my heart
My feelings for you, I could not hide or cheat

I cuddled in my coat as the moon above me shone
And I stood in solemn resolution
Beyond me had stood a revolution
But I’d tossed my love to the wind, like you throw a stone

And no matter what I said
Oh, I could not hide
From all the feelings
I felt deep inside
So I tried in the night
And I searched the whole world
And I ended up right back to where I’d begun

My mind was made up and fate was set
I tried to stand, but I found myself falling into your love
Closer and closer to my soul’s freedom
And love’s first look, I could never regret

I came in from the storm, wet, wet and cold
Away from the wind and the pelting hail
The wind had led me to you like it leads a sail
Back to your arms’ comforting hold

And no matter what I said
Oh, I could not hide
From all the feelings
I felt deep inside
So I tried in the night
And I searched the whole world
And I ended up right back to where I’d begun

So I tried in the night
And I searched the whole world
And I ended up right back
To where I belonged
Your loving arms
