my soul pleads for you lyrics – simon webbe

oh yeh yeh, oh oh, hey

there’s a place i’ve never been
a place i long to be
will i reach? i just don’t know
still i hope one day i’ll go, hey

my wish just never seems to come, yeah
i know for certain you’re the one, yeah
so close i get, still no cigar
carrying my wounded heart, yeah

i can’t stop the river from running, i can’t, i can’t
i can’t stop the rain from falling down on me, oh no no
i know i’m not what you want
i’m hoping in time you’ll see how
my soul pleads for you

not every time you meet someone and
you both just click in a minute
baby it’s the eye contact, smile like that
click click and you’re rolling
can’t stop calling you, i don’t know what to do
baby you’re making me break down all of my rules, yeah

i can’t stop the river from running, (i can’t stop the river from running)
i can’t stop the rain from falling down on me, oh no no
i know i’m not what you want
i’m hoping in time you’ll see how
my soul pleads for you, (yeah, yeah, yeah)

now i can believe you’ve put a spell on me
oh it’s the way it seems, i can’t keep you out my dreams
oh i get chills baby, when i can’t talk to you
i’m in pain and i hope you feel the way i do

i can’t stop the river from running, (i can’t stop the river from running)
i can’t stop the rain from falling down on me, oh no no
i know i’m not what you want
i’m hoping in time you’ll see how
my soul pleads for you, (yeah, yeah, yeah)

i know for certain you’re the one baby
so close, and no cigar
i carry this, my wounded heart
so close but yet so far

[chorus until fade]
