I was lost 'til you were found
But I never knew how far down
I was fallin' before I reached the bottom
I was cold and you were fire
And I never knew how the pyre could be burning on the edge
Of the ice field
A:
And the now chilly California wind
Is blowing down our bodies again
And we're sinking deeper and deeper into the
Chilly California sand
Oh I know you belong inside my aching heart
And can't you see my faded Levis bursting apart
And don't you hear me crying oh babe don't go
And don't you hear me screamin' how was I to know
I'm in the middle of nowhere
Near the end of the line
But there's a border to somewhere waiting
And there's a tankful of time
Oh give me just another moment
To see the light of the day
And take me to another land where I won't have to stay
And I'm gonna need somebody to make me feel like you do
And I will receive somebody with open arms open eyes
Open up the sky and let the planet that I love shine through
For crying out loud you know I love you (3X)
I was damned and you were saved
And I never knew how enslaved I was kneeling
In the chains of my master
I could laugh ah but you could cry
And I never knew just how high I was flying
With you right above me
:|| A
For taking in the rain when I'm feelin' so dry
For giving me the answers when I'm asking you why
My oh my for that I thank you
For takin' in the sun when I'm feelin' so cold
For givin' me a child when my body is old
Don't you know for that I need you
For comin' to my room when you know I'm alone
For findin' me a highway and drivin' me home
You gotta know for that I serve you
For pullin' me away when I'm startin' to fall
For revvin' me up when I'm startin' to stall
And all in all for that I want you
For taking and for giving and for playing the game
For praying for my future in the days that remain
Oh lord for that I hold you
Ah but most of all
For cryin' out loud
For that I love you
(repeat 3X)
When you're crying out loud
You know I love you
