  • Everybody needs inspiration
    Everybody needs a song
    A beautiful melody
    When the night's so long

    'Cause there is no guarantee
    That this life is easy

    Yeah, when my world is falling apart
    When there's no light to break up the dark
    That's when I, I
    I look at you

    When the waves
    Are flooding the shore and I can't
    Find my way home anymore
    That's when I, I
    I look at you

    When I look at you, I see forgiveness
    I see the truth
    You love me for who I am
    Like the stars hold the moon
    Right there where they belong
    And I know I'm not alone

    Yeah, when my world is falling apart
    When there's no light to break up the dark
    That's when I, I
    I look at you

    When the waves
    Are flooding the shore and I can't
    Find my way home anymore
    That's when I, I
    I look at you

    You appear just like a dream to me
    Just like Kaleidoscope colors that
    Cover me, all I need
    Every breath that I breathe
    Don't you know you're beautiful?

    Yeah, yeah, yeah

    When the waves
    Are flooding the shore and I can't
    Find my way home anymore
    That's when I, I
    I look at you
    I look at you

    You appear just like a dream
