Lyrics

Driving Round

Written By: Roy Pritchard

Do you remember when
Tears were falling down like rain
They rolled on frozen ground
Hearts were turning into stone
Losing what we found

Our eyes were blinded in this storm
tearing at our lives
but storms they come and stay then leave
But look we've still survived

But through the tears, seasons began to change
Maybe this year, this light could lead us home

Chorus

I need your love to come driving round (Repeat)

So why dont you give yourself before you go
without pretence or show
Lets enter in another year
the taste of fears might go
the only love we have is now
the only love we'll know
so say the words and touch this heart
that's aching just to know

That through the tears
seasons could really change
maybe this year
this light could lead us home

Chorus

I need your love to come driving round
I need your love to come calling round (Repeat)
