Jim Steinman – For Crying Out Loud lyrics

I was lost till you were found
But I never knew how far down
I was falling
Before I reached the bottom

I was cold and you were fire
And I never knew how the pyre
Could be burning
On the edge of the icefield

And now the chilly California wind
Is blowing down our bodies again
And weґre sinking deeper and deeper in the chilly California sand
Oh I know you belong inside my aching heart
And canґt you see my faded Leviґs
Bursting apart
And donґt you hear me crying:
"Oh Babe, donґt go"
And donґt you hear me screaming:
"How was I to know?"

Iґm in the middle of nowhere
Near the end of the line
But thereґs a border to somewhere waiting
And thereґs a tank full of time
Oh give me just another moment to see the light of the day
And take me to another land where I donґt have to stay
And Iґm gonna need somebody to make me feel like you do
And I will receive somebody with open arms, open eyes,
Open up the sky and let the planet that I love shine through

For crying out loud
You know I love you
For crying out loud
You know I love you
For crying out loud
You know I love you

I was damned and you were saved
And I never knew how enslaved
I was kneeling
In the chains of my master

I could laugh oh but you could cry
And I never knew just how high
I was flying
Oh, with you right above me

And now the chilly California wind
Oh is blowing down our bodies again
And weґre sinking deeper and deeper in the chilly California sand
Oh I know you belong inside my aching heart
And canґt you see my faded Leviґs
Bursting apart
And donґt you hear me crying:
"Oh Babe, donґt go"
And donґt you hear me screaming:
"Oh how was I to know?"

Iґm in the middle of nowhere
Near the end of the line
But thereґs a border to somewhere waiting
And thereґs a tank full of time
Oh give me just another moment to see the light of the day
And take me to another land where I donґt have to stay
And Iґm gonna need somebody to make me feel like you do
And I will receive somebody with open arms, open eyes,
Open up the sky and let the planet that I love shine through

For crying out loud
You know I love you
Oh or crying out loud
You know I love you
Oh for crying out loud
You know I love you
Ohhh for crying out loud
You know I love you

For taking in the rain when Iґm feeling so dry
For giving me the answers when Iґm asking you why
And my oh my
For that I thank you

For taking in the sun when Iґm feeling so cold
For giving me a child when my body is old
And donґt you know
For that I need you

For coming to my room when you know Iґm alone
For finding me a highway and for driving me home
And you gotta knowFor that I serve you

For pulling me away when Iґm starting to fall
For revving me up when Iґm starting to stall
And all in all
For that I want you

For taking and for giving and for playing the game
For prying for my future in the days that remain
Ohh LordFor that I hold you

Ah but most of all
For crying out loudFor that I love you
Ah but most of all
For crying out loudFor that I love you

When youґre crying out loud
You know I love you
