You're not a ship to carry my life
You are nailed to my love in many lonely nights
I've strayed from the cottages and found myself here
Oh I need your love, your love protects my fears

And I wonder sometimes and I know I'm unkind
But I need you to turn to when I act so blind
Oh I need you to turn to when I lose control
You're my guardian angel, who keeps out the cold

Did you paint your smile on? Well I said I knew
That my reason for living was for loving you
We're related in feeling but you're high above
You're pure and you're gentle with the grace of a dove

And I wonder sometimes and I know I'm unkind
But I need you to turn to when I act so blind
Oh I need you to turn to when I lose control
You're my guardian angel, who keeps out the cold
