Lyrics SOMETIMES
I SWEAR I LIVE WITH AN ANGEL
SENT FROM ABOVE
TO WATCH OVER ME.
HE WEARS HIS LOVE
JUST LIKE A HALO,
IF HE'S NOT AN ANGEL,
WHAT ELSE COULD HE BE?
HE WOULDN'T SAY
HE'S ANYTHING SPECIAL,
BETCHA THAT'S HOW
ALL THOSE ANGELS ARE.
BUT WHEN HE COMES AROUND
MIRACLES HAPPEN,
I FELT THE FIRST ONE
WHEN HE TOUCHED MY HEART.

THOUGH I'VE NEVER SEEN HIM FLY
ON THE WINGS OF LOVE HE CARRIES ME.
HEAVEN BOUND
I'M MYSTIFIED
HOW WITH JUST ONE KISS
HE MADE ME BELIEVE IN ANGELS
THOUGH I'VE NEVER SEEN HIM FLY.

THIS MORNIN' HE WALKED UP,
SMILED,
AND I KISSED HIM,
I NEVER LET ON
THAT HE'S NOT FOOLIN' ME.
BUT I THINK IT'S SO CUTE
HOW HE SAYS HE'S FROM HOUSTON,
I SWEAR
THERE'S WINGS TUCKED UP HIS SLEEVES.

Lyrics TIME,
IT GOES SO FAST,
LIKE A RIVER RUNNING PAST.
AND YOU'RE LUCKY
IF YOU CAN FIND AT LAST
JUST ONE FAITHFUL HEART.
SO I WATCH HER
AS SHE SLEEPS
ALL CURLED UP IN HER DREAMS.
SOMEWHERE
BENEATH THE QUILT AND SHEETS
GENTLY BEATS ONE FAITHFUL HEART.

AS CONSTANT AS THE NORTHERN STAR,
AND AS SURE AS GRAVITY,
HER LOVE MAKES ME COMPLETE,
MAKES MY LIFE SO SWEET.

THIS NIGHT WILL SLIP ON BY,
SOON SHE'LL OPEN UP HER EYES,
AND I WILL SEE THE LIGHT THAT SHINES
FROM JUST ONE FAITHFUL HEART.

I LIVE TO SEE THE LIGHT THAT SHINES
FROM JUST ONE FAITHFUL HEART.

Lyrics MIDNIGHT,
PHONE RINGS,
SOMEHOW I JUST KNEW.
YOUR VOICE SO SURE,
SAYING, BABY, HOW ARE YOU?
YOU CAN'T FOOL ME,
YOU ONLY CALL
WHEN YOUR HEART HITS THE WALL.

I GUESS YOU KNOW BY NOW,
I'M A SAFE PLACE TO FALL.
WHENEVER SHE LETS YOU DOWN
YOU KNOW WHO TO CALL.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO EXPLAIN,
BABY, JUST BRING YOUR PAIN,
I'M A SAFE PLACE TO FALL.

YOU COME,
YOU GO.
THAT'S HOW IT'S ALWAYS BEEN:
WE TALK ABOUT HER,
YOU'RE SO GLAD THAT I'M YOUR FRIEND.
I GIVE YOU MY SHOULDER,
YOU LAY DOWN YOUR HEAD TO REST,
FOR A WHILE YOU FORGET.

I GUESS YOU KNOW BY NOW,
I'M A SAFE PLACE TO FALL.
WHENEVER SHE LETS YOU DOWN
YOU KNOW WHO TO CALL.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO EXPLAIN,
BABY, JUST BRING YOUR PAIN,
I'M A SAFE PLACE TO FALL.

MAYBE SOMEDAY
YOU'LL SAY
YOU WILL STAY.

I GUESS YOU KNOW BY NOW,
I'M A SAFE PLACE TO FALL.
WHENEVER SHE LETS YOU DOWN
YOU KNOW WHO TO CALL.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO EXPLAIN,
BABY, JUST BRING YOUR PAIN,
I'M A SAFE PLACE TO FALL.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO EXPLAIN,
BABY, JUST BRING YOUR PAIN,
I'M YOUR SAFE PLACE TO FALL.

Lyrics YOU'VE RUN THROUGH YOUR REASONS
WHY YOU CAN'T STAY,
I KNOW WE'RE BOTH WISHIN'
THERE WAS SOME OTHER WAY.
BUT YOUR FUTURE IS OUT THERE
'NEATH THE NORTHERN STAR
JUST KEEP THIS IN MIND,
BABE,
WHERE EVER YOU ARE:

YOU CAN FOLLOW THIS RIVER
OF CONCRETE AND STONE,
AND IT'S CURRENT CAN'T LEAD YOU
A LONG WAY FROM HOME.
BUT IF YOU EVER GROW LONELY
ONE OF THESE DAYS,
REMEMBER
THIS RIVER RUNS BOTH WAYS.

YOU'RE BRAVER THAN I AM
LEAVIN' THIS TOWN,
AND I MAY WISH I WAS WITH YOU
WHEN THE DUST SETTLES DOWN.
BUT THIS IS WHERE I BELONG, BOY,
OH, THIS I BELIEVE:
MY ROOTS RUN DEEP HERE
AND THOUGH I'LL NEVER LEAVE...

YOU CAN FOLLOW THIS RIVER
OF CONCRETE AND STONE,
AND IT'S CURRENT CAN'T LEAD YOU
A LONG WAY FROM HOME.
BUT IF YOU EVER GROW LONELY
ONE OF THESE DAYS,
REMEMBER
THIS RIVER RUNS BOTH WAYS.

Lyrics PEOPLE WORRY ABOUT YOU
FALLIN' IN LOVE WITH ME,
THEY'RE GETTIN' INSIDE YOUR HEAD,
EVERYBODY KNOWS
WHAT EVERYBODY ELSE NEEDS.
THEY SAY I'LL LEAVE YOU LONELY,
BABY THAT'S JUST NOT SO,
I'LL BE HOLDIN' ON TO YOU,
TILL YOU LET GO.
GONNA TELL YOU I LOVE YOU,
IT'S WHAT'S IN THIS HEART OF MINE,
LET'S DISPENSE
WITH THE MOON AND STARS
AND ALL THOSE OTHER CLICHE LINES.
I NEVER COULD DEFINE FOREVER,
BUT BABY NOW I KNOW,
I'LL BE HOLDIN' ON TO YOU,
TILL YOU LET GO.

WHOA, WHOA,
I HOPE
THAT YOU'RE NEVER GONNA TURN ME LOOSE,
'CAUSE I'M HANGIN' UP MY WALKIN' SHOES
STAYING HERE WITH YOU.

AS SURE AS THE SUN WILL RISE,
JUST LIKE THE RIVER FLOWS,
I'LL BE HOLDIN' ON TO YOU,
HOLDIN' ON TO,
HOLDIN' ON TO YOU,
TILL YOU LET GO.
BABY NOW I KNOW,
I'LL BE HOLDIN' ON
YEAH, YEAH,
I'LL BE HOLDIN' ON TO YOU,
'CAUSE I'M HANGIN' UP MY WALKIN' SHOES.
