I know the way that I feel about you
I'm never gonna run away, I'm never gonna run away
Never knew the way when I lived without you
I'm never gonna run away, I'm never gonna run away

I came to you when no one could hear me
I'm sick and weary of being alone
Empty streets and hungry faces
The world's no place when you're on your own
A heart needs a home

Some people say that I should forget you
But I'm never gonna be a fool, I'm never gonna be a fool
Better life, they say if I'd never met you
But I'm never gonna be a fool, no, I'm never gonna be a fool

Tongues talk fire and eyes cry rivers
Indian givers, hearts of stone
Paper ships and painted faces
The world's no place when you're on your own
A heart needs a home
