Weekend In New England

Album: This One's For You (1976)
Charted: 10
  • Last night I waved goodbye,
    Now it seems years
    I'm back in the city
    Where nothing is clear
    But thoughts of me holding you,
    Bringing us near

    And tell me, when will our eyes meet?
    When can I touch you?
    When will this strong yearning end?
    And when will I hold you again

    Time in New England
    Took me away
    To long rocky beaches
    And you by the bay
    We started a story
    Whose end must now wait

    And tell me, when will our eyes meet?
    When can I touch you?
    When will this strong yearning end?
    And when will I hold you again

    I feel the change comin'
    I feel the wind blow
    I feel brave and daring
    I feel my blood flow
    With you I could bring out
    All the love that I have
    With you there's a heaven,
    So earth ain't so bad

    And tell me, when will our eyes meet?
    When can I touch you?
    When will this strong yearning end?
    And when will I hold you
    Again
