  • Take my hand
    Tell me what you are feeling
    This is just the beginning

    Although I have to go
    It makes me feel like crying
    I don't know when I'll see you again

    Darling leave a light on for me
    I'll be there before you close the door
    To give you all the love that you need
    Darling leave a light on for me
    'Cause when the world takes me away
    You are still the air that I breathe

    I can't explain I just don't know
    Just how far I have to go
    But darling I'll keep the key
    Just leave a light on for me

    Yes I know
    What I'm asking is crazy
    You could go
    Just get tired of waiting
    But if I lose your love
    Torn out by my desire
    That would be the one regret of my life

    Just like a spark lights up the dark
    Baby that's your heart Writer/s: RICK NOWELS, ELLEN SHIPLEY

  • Paul from Geelong, Australiahelp - i've listened to this brill song and the full cd many imes and i can't tell which songs include bryan adams on vocals ?
  • Jack from New York, NyMany thnx to Ed Pearce. As a Harrison idiot, I had NO idea why he would ever work with her. Some of his best guitar work are on this tune and "Ocean" as well. There are few guitarists who had such a signature as George did (Hendrix/Edge/Santana,etc.) and this really spotlights it.
  • Mike from Santa Barbara, CaThis song has been performed for the soldiers in Iraq who have wives and children they left behind.
  • Bill from Downers Grove, IlBy far my favorite Belinda song. I didn't know George Harrison worked on it. Thanks for the info !
