Welcome to my thinking out loud…



Posted on 9 December 2020 by Iain under Thinking Out Loud


When I need a hand to hold
When I’m feeling less than bold
When I feel my heart is cold

You’ll be there

When I think I’m going to cry
When I’ve lost the will to try
When into a rage I fly

You’ll be there

When my willpower seems to wane
When I’ve nothing left to gain
When my soul is full of pain

You’ll be there

When with the world I want to fight
When the ties that bind cut tight
When every sentence seems so trite

You’ll be there

When I find I’m hurting so
When my spirit sinks so low
When in search of warmth I go

You’ll be there

When I bask in love’s rich glow
When pure happiness I truly know
When the warmth of our love, could melt the snow

We’ll be there
