  • You want to get close to me
    The feeling so clear
    But I need some time to see
    Vision through my tear
    You want to get next to me
    I need your intrusion
    I don't need to be
    Blinded by confusion

    Here is my heart
    Waiting for you
    Here is my soul
    I eat at chez nous

    Love will find a way
    If you want it to
    Love will find a way
    Love will find a way for me and you

    Love will find a way
    Love will find a way
    Love will find a way
    Love will find a way

    So you want to get over me
    And that's how you feel
    Everything you want to be
    Seems so unreal
    I want to be all of you
    And that's the confusion
    It's so hard for me
    To draw a conclusion

    Here is my heart
    Waiting for you
    Here is my soul
    I eat at chez nous

    Love will find a way
    If you want it to
    Love will find a way
    Love will find a way

    Love will find a way
    If you want it to
    Love will find a way
    Love will find a way

    Love will find a way
    I believe that there's a way
    If you want it to
    Will love find a way
    Love will find a way
    Will love find a way
    Love will find a way Writer/s: TREVOR RABIN

  • Bill from UsaAgree with the comments in favor of the "chez nous" lyric. Foreign languages have always crept into written art (poems, novels, etc) and there is no reason it can't come into lyrics. The sentiment is fitting and it is a clever way to make the rhyme with "...waiting for you." Even if the restaurant is what put it in his mind. It is far better than a tired, cliched "what else can I do" or an inane "the toilet's where you poo." Those would be clumsy and silly. I think "I need your intrusion" is the more awkward line to me. Perhaps we need to come to the artist, rather than expecting the art to come to us? I especially like the outro chorus where they change the placement and pacing with the echo of "Love Find A Way", as well as the interplay between Jon Anderson's voice and Trevor Rabin's. Sublime. The funny fretboard exercise lick that is the main hook for the tune is catchy and superb. All that said, Pablo Cruise had a hit with the words "Love Will Find A Way" many years before this, and I can't imagine Trevor wasn't aware of that recording, so I'm surprised at the "wonder" with those particular words. I guess wherever inspiration strikes...
  • Count Monster Rod Von Hugenstein from Intercourse, PennsylvaniaAj. . . the line "I eat at Chez Nous" mean the guy eats at home. . . he wants a relationship with the girl and will not stray. So the line if very fitting for the song.
  • Joseph from Grand Junction, Colorado I completely disagree with the previous comment. IMO this is one of Yes best songs
    they ever put out. Outside of Roundabout there old stuff grew tired and redundant. This song to me brought a welcome change
  • Aj from Orange County, CaWhile Trevor Rabin may be justified in thinking "Love will find a way" was "a great lyric", this song also includes quite possibly one of the clumsiest, silliest most pretentious yet dumbest lyric in any Top 40 song, at least in the humble opinion of this Songfacts participant: "I eat at Chez Nous." It translates literally to "the house of we" or "our house" or "where we live." There was a "Chez Nous" restaurant in LA's Toluca Lake area, and Rabin reportedly ate there. Nevertheless, the inclusion of the lyric is like an embarrassing third appendage, like an arm growing out of your back or a leg coming out of your chest. It doesn't belong, and it is puzzling why it was allowed to remain when the song was recorded.
