From the recording Dreams & Ghosts: A Family Album

Lyrics

Lovers come and lovers go, I watch them ebb and flow
With the tides of the night
Rare are those who bear their minds, who never tire of this life
Who dance with the tides of the night
I met you beneath the stars and that is when I knew
I wonder just who you are, I wonder what it is to know you
In the tides of your life
 
I want to know you, my dear, to know you
Your dreams, your doubts, your sorrows, your pouts
And everything inside and out
Because to know you, my dear, to know you
Would be like sitting by the fire just to watch the flames that inspire you
 
I don’t know how long I will want to sing this song
I don’t know if you will want to sing along
But just for tonight, won’t you stay? Oh babe, we can’t go wrong
I couldn’t live another day without taking this chance to say:
 
I want to know you, my dear, to know you
Your hands, your feet, your messy, your neat
And everything makes you complete
Because to know you, my dear, to know you
Would be like sitting ‘neath the sky just to watch the stars that shine for you
 
I don’t know how long I will want to sing this song
I don’t know if you will want to sing along
But just for tonight, won’t you stay? Oh babe, we can’t go wrong
I couldn’t live another day without taking this chance to say:
 
I want to know you, my dear, to know you
Your dreams, your doubts, your sorrows, your pouts
And everything inside and out
Because to know you, my dear, to know you
Would be like sitting by the sea just to watch the waves bring you to me
