i know you by heart lyrics – eva cassidy

i am spinnin’ around inside
through the window you say “climb in for a ride”
all i want is what you are
but if you drive me to my door it’ll go too far

i know you by heart
like the road back home
i know if we touched, i’d have to have you alone
i know you by heart
you’re my very best friend
i know if i let you back, it would all start again

’cause you run wild, wind in your hair
you love for the moment, live for the journey to who knows where
and all i fear you can’t control
it’s just your nature
you can’t find what you need in one soul, and

i know you by heart
like the road back home
i know if we touched, i’d have to have you alone
i know you by heart
like my own flesh and blood
what i feel for you, babe, goes deeper than love

in your arms i feel the strength of all that’s true
and when you say you love me, i know i was meant for you
but i don’t know the part, no i don’t know that part
no, i don’t know what makes you go away

but i am tired, worn down and all
i haven’t the patience, the courage to take another fall
all i need is simple and sweet
to wake in the morning with the one who wants me for keeps, and

i know you by heart
like the road back home
i know if we touched i’d have to have you alone
i know you by heart
every inch of your skin
i know if i let it start, i’d never want it to end
i know you by heart, the heart of your soul
i know you like the only home that i’ll ever know
