Feat. Sheena Easton

Orion's arms are wide enough 2 hold us both 2gether
Although we're worlds apart, I'd cross the stars 4 U

In the heart of a sleepless moon, I'll be with U 4ever
This is my destiny till my life is through

CHORUS:
The Arms of Orion, that's where I wanna be
Since U've been gone
I've been searching 4 a lover in the Sea of Tranquility
Drowning without U here, my dear

When I am lost or feeling lonely, I just look 2 heaven
I find my comfort there
God only knows where U are 2night

God only knows where U are 2night
Maybe time will tell me
Till then I close my eyes, say a prayer 4 U
(Say a prayer 4 U 2)

CHORUS

Orion's heart is bright enough 2 shine on both of us
The constellations never fail 2 light the way 4 love

Orion's arms are wide enough 2 hold us both 2gether
Although we're worlds apart (I'd cross the stars 4 U)
I'd cross the stars 4 U

CHORUS
(Oh)

The Arms of Orion, that's where I wanna be
Since U've been gone I've been drowning (Lost)
In the Sea of Tranquility (Lonely)
Drowning without U here (Baby)
My dear (Drowning without U, oh)

Arms of Orion
That's where I wanna be (Where I?­)
That's where I wanna be (The Arms of Orion) {x2}
Since U've been gone, babe
Since U've been gone, I've been drowning (Drowning)
Drowning, drowning without your love
The Arms of Orion (Arms of Orion)

    This song means alot to me and now even more. I heard the song alot in 1989. But in 1991 I gave birth to my son. And gave him the middle name o'rian. Yes spelled different but I always loved this song and could never figure out the name. Well he lives in texas now and I live in a different state. I have been thinking about this song alot the last couple days so I looked up the lyrics and finally got the name, and who sang it. I called my son and explained about the song and thinking about it alot. He told me he has been homesick and wanting missing me alot these last couple days. Just kind of our connection I guess.
