Lyrics

(Source: Faith and Courage)

I wanna go walking with you,
If you'd agree.
I wanna do some talking with you
Where no one can see.
I wanna go dancing, darling,
If you agree.
I think I'll feel a safe step, darling,
If you were with me.
And when you wrap your arms around me,
When you take me close and say
That you're so happy and so glad you found me,
You take my rainy days, and make them go away.
Long time I've been thinking of you.
Do you think of me, too?
Long time I've been dreaming of you.
Make this dream come true.
Long time I've been wondering about this;
Can this really exist?
I swear I feel a peaceful feeling
In the warmth of your kiss.
And when you wrap your arms around me,
And when you take me close and say
That you're so happy and so glad you found me,
You take my rainy days, and make them go away.
On this journey, may the good Lord guide us,
And may the goddess dance beside us.
When you wrap your arms around me,
When you take me close and say
That you're so happy and so glad you found me,
You take my rainy days, and make them go away.

Notes

The piano fill between breaks in the verses is borrowed from Paul McCartney & Wings' song "No Words," from their 1973 album Band on the Run.

you wrap your arms around me:

Sinéead also uses this phrase in and as the title of a demo included on the She Who Dwells... compilation (c.f.).

A snippet of this song was in the Adam Sandler movie Little Nicky, but it isn't included on the official movie soundtrack CD.

Produced by Wyclef Jean and Jerry "Wonder" Duplessis Andy Grassi
