  • Come into these arms again
    And lay your body down
    The rhythm of this trembling heart
    Is beating like a drum

    It beats for you, it bleeds for you
    It know not how it sound
    For it is the drum of drums
    It is the song of songs

    Once I had rarest rose
    That ever deigned to bloom
    Cruel winter chilled the bud
    And stole my flower too soon

    Oh loneliness, oh hopelessness
    To search the ends of time
    For there is in all the world
    No greater love than mine

    Love, oh love, oh love
    Still falls the rain (still falls the rain)
    Love, oh love, oh, love
    Still falls the night
    Love, oh love, oh love
    Be mine forever (be mine forever)
    Love, oh love, oh love

    Let me be the only one
    To keep you from the cold
    Now the floor of heaven's lain
    With stars of brightest gold

    They shine for you, they shine for you
    They burn for all to see
    Come into these arms again
    And set this spirit free Writer/s: ANNIE LENNOX
