1, 2, 3

I want love to stretch it's fingers wide
And touch on all our wandering parts.
Come sit by my Californian side
With your Carolina heart.

If you let me be your anchor
I will hold you down.
If you let me be your anchor
I will hold you down.

If I see the thin trace of his hands
Let the winter pay all my dues
Let me forgive every single man
That before me came to you.

If you let me be your anchor
I will hold you down.
If you let me be your anchor
I will hold you down.

So find me when you welcome back your roots
And I will be where all of your ends meet.
I want the feeling waking next to you
I want to find my children at your feet.

If you let me be your anchor
I will hold you down.
If you let me be your anchor
I will hold you down.

oooohhhhhh
oooh oh oh oh oh oh
oooohhhhhh

    Song MeaningI think this is a very sweet song. Not sure if it's just a guy longing for a girl in general, or if he knows her and hopes that she will come around to be with him. I think that he might know her already because he says "So find me when you welcome back your roots - And I will be where all of your ends meet." I guess I think of roots as coming back home...maybe they know each other from somewhere.

    In general, it's just very sweet - "I want the feeling waking next to you / I want to find my children at your feet." :)
