Where you are, that's where I wanna be
And through your eyes
All the things I wanna see
And in the night
You are my dream
You're everything to me

You're the love of my life
And the breath in my prayers
Take my hand, lead me there
What I need is you there

I can't forget the taste of your mouth
From your lips
The heavens pour out
I can't forget when we are one
With you alone, I am free

Every day, every night, you alone
You're the love of my life
Every day, every night
You're the love of my life

We go dancing in the moonlight
With the starlight in your eyes
We go dancing till the sunrise
You and me we're gonna dance, dance, dance

(featuring Santana on guitar)

    General CommentThis song is absolutely beautiful. Dave's sexy voice blends wonderfully with Santana's talent on the strings. It's a great combination to make a great song.

    General Commenti love this song. The first time i had even heard about it was when my boyfriend sent me the lyrics in an email while i was on vacation. Then he sung it to me over the phone. When i got home i downloaded it and listened to it about a hundred times. It really is a great song. i love it.

    General CommentI don't know what pyramusthis is talking about- it is not a Sting cover. Dave wrote this song with Santana. It is a song expressing his love for his wife. It's beautiful! Too bad Dave hasn't written more songs like this one.

    General CommentGah, this song is so sensual it makes me want to run to my ex-boyfriends house and revisit the afternoon that will forever be associated with this song.

    General Commenti can't believe only 5 people have posted here so far. this song is gorgeous. two musical geniouses, santana and dave, are paired together to create this beautiful song. the meaning is self explanitory, and the lyrics aren't very complex. it's a classic love song, and the real purpose of the song is for the listener to absorb dave's hynotizing voice complimenting santana's strings. this song makes me want to fall in love again. it is so powerful.

    General Commentif i not wrong, the main part of the guitar riff was taken from a classical composition for orchestra.
    this song is a real deal, there's a sensual and pure feeling with the lyrics and the music. this is the song that make me turn my head to dave matthews and his band
