  • There's nothing 'round here I believe in
    'Cept you, yeah you
    And there's nothing to me that's sacred
    'Cept you, yeah you

    You're the one that reaches me
    You're the one that I admire
    Every time we meet together
    My soul feels like it's on fire
    Nothing matters to me
    And there's nothing I desire
    'Cept you, yeah you

    Nothing 'round here I care to try for
    'Cept you, yeah you
    Got nothing left to live or die for
    'Cept you, yeah you

    There's a hymn I used to hear
    In the churches all the time
    Make me feel so good inside
    So peaceful, so sublime
    And there's nothing to remind me of that
    Old familiar chime
    'Cept you, yeah you

    I used to play in the cemetery
    Dance and sing and run when I was a child
    Never seemed strange
    But now I just pass mournfully by
    That place where the bones of life are piled
    I know somethin' has changed

    I'm a stranger here and no one sees me
    'Cept you, yeah you
    Nothing matters much or even pleases me
    'Cept you, yeah you

    Nothing hypnotizes me
    Or casts me in a spell
    Everything runs through me
    Just like water from a well
    Everybody wants my attention
    Everybody's got something to sell
    'Cept you, yeah you Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
