I Need You Now

A storm draws near, hear the wind howl,
The moon denies me its light,
On nights like this, I need you here,
Oh love, I need you tonight

The thunder is loud, the lightning is fierce,
I should pray, but I don't know how,
On nights like this, I need you near,
Oh love, I need you now

The wind is bending and snapping the trees,
I don't want to face this alone,
Bring me the shelter of your arms,
Oh, how wicked this storm has grown

On this moonless night, so dark and cold,
I'll welcome your gentle light,
Draw me close and sing me to sleep,
Don't let me out of your sight

Absorbed by passion's thirst, I know
Wanting you so much must be wrong,
But on nights like this, I need you here,
Just come.... I'll be yours for a song

    An ardent desire is expressed here for the love to be along.. The intensity was expressed so nicely....

    Draw me close and sing me to sleep,

    I'm singin' in the rain
    Just singin' in the rain
    What a glorious feelin'
    I'm happy again.
    I'm laughing at clouds.
    So dark up above
    The sun's in my heart
    And i'm ready for love.

    Let the stromy clouds chase.
    Everyone from the place
    Come on with the rain
    I've a smile on my face
    I walk down the lane
    With a happy refrain
    just singin'
    singin' in the rain (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
