For one love

Written By: Chris Roberts

And when I'm far away
you are always by my side.
You're there in every chord I play,
every thought that's in my mind

Our love will grow when we're apart.
The grain of sand becomes a pearl
You are the compass of my heart
that made me search the whole wide world

for one love...

And when I close my eyes
the dark veil of night descends.
I know that when the sun will rise
I will see your face again.

So when you're all alone
I hope you think of me and smile
and know that I'll be heading home
though it were ten thousand miles

for one love...

Cross the deepest, widest ocean.
Ride the storms of your emotions.
Nothing shakes my deep devotion.
For your love I'd die.

For one love...
