Lyrics

(Source: as heard)

I have a love that lives in me.
He makes me see in perfect peace.
He loves me strong and gently.
He doesn't try to change me.
No, he'd never, ever treat me bad.
Nor he'd never call me names.
He erases every memory of pain.
You put your arms around me.
Oh, since the day you found me,
I've been, I've been free.
I love the life you've given me.
We are each other's family.
And I never, ever treat you bad,
And I never call you names.
I will erase every memory of shame.
You wrap yourself around me.
Oh, since the day you found me,
I've been, I've been me, ee-ee-ee,
Oh-oh-oh-oh.
You put your arms around me.
Oh, since the day you found me,
I've been, I've been free, ee-ee-ee.
You wrapped yourself around me.
Oh, since the day you found me,
I've been, I've been me, ee-ee-ee.
Oh-ah-oh.
Oh-ah-oh.

Notes

Rick Nowels, who co-wrote this song, also co-wrote and produced Conjure One's "Tears From the Moon," on which Sinéead provides the vocals. Thus this song was most likely recorded in 2002, perhaps at the same sessions that produced "Tears From the Moon."

Produced by Sinéad O'Connor and Rick Nowels
