Just Be My Man

 

Wherever I go, whatever I see                       

You’re a shadow watching over me     

You take my hand, you guide the way

You’re my first thought of each new day                      

How this happened or where you’ve been

Doesn’t matter…just please don’t let it end

All my life’s been wrong but this much is true

All I’ve ever wanted is man like you…

 

In your arms is where I feel safe

Wrap me up, don’t let me escape

I want to hear your voice, see your eyes

Whisper your name in the soft moonlight

So stay with me, hold my hand

(don’t ever go, just be my man)

 

Until you, this life of mine was unreal

I never knew how good it could feel

You banished all my doubts and fears

Healed my soul with unspoken tears

You’re in my dreams, you’re in my heart

You’ve always been there…right from the start

You’re hope and joy, fresh as the morning dew

Oh, what did I ever do to deserve a man like you?

 

In your arms is where I feel safe

Wrap me up, don’t let me escape

I want to hear your voice, see your eyes

Whisper your name in the soft moonlight

So stay with me, hold my hand

(don’t ever go, just be my man)

 

The look in your eyes, the smile on your face

Those are the things that make my day

Thoughts of you, the touch of your hand

A heart with an arrow etched in the sand

My life’s complete, its right on course

Bless the day you walked through my door

Nowhere is too far with you at my side

So stay with me, let’s take the long ride

 

In your arms is where I feel safe

Wrap me up, don’t let me escape

I want to hear your voice, see your eyes

Whisper your name in the soft moonlight

So stay with me, hold my hand

(don’t ever go, just be my man)

If love can inspire such passion... it is indeed something worth cherishing

This is a fantastic piece! From what I've read so far you have a great ear for the musicality of language while being able to evoke powerful emotion. Very well done!
