I was travellin on a lonely road
goin someplace I dunno
The way ahead was bleak and getting dark
Was it something in the sky above
or something in the broken scrub
that made me suddenly think of you

The memory of your face so sweet
and that awful day I had to leave
I can't help the tears that fill my eyes
This weight inside my heart tells how
we've been split apart
And God knows it gets heavier every day, every day
There's only one way home for me from here
And I'm looking at you
straight down through these years
I can see your happy smiling face
and somethin tells me that it's not too late
And I'll be holdin, holding you in my arms.

I never wanted to give you up
but what's done is done
let the past be gone
I can't change what happened
or bring back the time we missed,
You may think I left you behind
but each day I carried you in my mind
And all the time I drifted around
I was just getting nearer to you, getting nearer to you

When I'll be holdin holdin holdin you in my arms
I'll be holdin you and nothing will keep us apart
I can see your happy smiling face
and something tells me everything's in place
And I'll be holdin, holding you in my arms.

All the years I waited tryin to get in touch with you
Wondering if you'd still remember,
wondering if you knew
But always one thing certain
I never gave up hope for us
That one day we'd be together
and the day is coming up

When I'll be holdin holdin you in my arms
I'll be holdin holdin holdin
you in my arms
I'm a comin on down
to the old front gate
and I can see you there
with your smiling face
And I'm back here
holding you in my arms.

Yes I'm holdin, holdin, holdin you in my arms
(little darling)
Yes I'm holdin you and nothing can keep us apart
I can see us crying tears of joy and all I can say is
boy oh boy
I'm so happy to be
holdin you in my arms, in my arms, in my arms,
with you at last in my arms,
I'm so happy to be holdin you in my arms
