  • Evil ways of practice may surround you
    Callin' on your inner core of life
    But your father was just a complex man of business
    And your mother merely portioned out your fright
    Gonna run the risk of a sudden loss
    You got no mama to bear your cross beside you
    Uh huh, huh, huh
    The midnight angels shine their wings
    And time begins just to build a wall all around you
    Oh

    Nobody, nobody gonna take my love away from me
    Nobody, nobody gonna take my love away from me

    Settin' out on a voyage down to Jenner
    I've given all I've got to help the cause
    Need a place just to settle out my pressures
    A place where you and I can sit and pause
    So I can see the sky at night
    Without a fear of a hidden light to blind me
    Mm, mm
    And so you see a path is here
    The changes will be swayed around me

    Nobody, nobody gonna take my love away from me
    Nobody, nobody gonna take my love away from me

    Ooh
    Ooh
    Nobody, nobody gonna take my love away from me, yeah
    Nobody, nobody gonna take my love away from me Writer/s: Tom Johnston
