Lyrics

"The Truth"

Written By: James Logan Cole

Oh Girl, I'm always reachin' for your love
Cuz I don't ever want to see you lonely
We could sail away, across the seas
and I promise to be your one and only
And I don't wanna lay awake
I fall asleep just to dream
Oh Love, I'll dream a dream of you
Oh thats the truth..

Oh sweet Lady, You love me so Close (So, So Close)
in the morning moving soft and slowly
And On my mind (On my mind)
The taste of your skin,
Perfect blend of sweet and salty
And I don't wanna lay awake
I fall asleep just to dream
Oh Love, Ill dream a dream of you
Oh thats the truth,
My love, I'll dream a dream of you.
Oh thats the truth.

Come on over babe
I've got somethin to say
Just come on over babe

Cuz it takes, More love from you
So much more, than your skin so smooth
So let me hear the words, Speak the truth about me and you
And I'll give all my love, To you.

(Dream a Dream, Ooooohhh)(Repeat 12x)
Ill dream a dream of you
Oh thats the truth,
My love, I'll dream a dream of you.
Oh thats the truth.
My Love, I'll Dream a dream of you

Oh Tell me, Tell me what you want
Oh Tell me, Tell me what you needed
Tell me its love...
Tell me its love...

Headed For Love
