(coverdale)

I would do anything I could to be near you,
Walk all night in the pouring rain
To be at your side
My heart is aching for love,
My body's shaking with desire
Believe me, baby, when I say
I will drink you dry

I would do anything to be near you,
You're everything any man could claim
I see your face in the night,
I hear you calling my name

But, it's a long long way from home,
I'm just trying to get a message to you,
It's a long long way from home,
An' I don't know what I'm gonna do

I'd been looking for love for so long when I found you,
Too many years I walked alone
When I touch you inside I feel you burning me with fire,
Believe me baby when I say
I will feed the flame

I would do anything to be near you,
Walk all night in the pouring rain
I see your face in the night,
I hear you calling my name

But, it's a long long way from home,
I'm just trying to get a message to you,
It's a long long way from home,
An' I don't know what I'm gonna do

I would do anything to be near you,
You're everything any man could claim
I see your face in the night,
I hear you calling my name

But, it's a long long way from home,
I'm just trying to get a message to you,
It's a long long way from home,
An' I don't know what I'm gonna do

I would do anything I could to be near you,
Check in on any night time flight, I don't mind
My heart is aching for love,
My body's shaking with desire
Believe me baby when I say
I will drink you dry

I would do anything to be near you,
Walk all night in the pouring rain
I see your face in the night,
I hear you calling my name

But, it's a long long way from home,
I'm just trying to get a message to you,
It's a long long way from home,
An' I don't know what I'm gonna do

It's a long long way from home,
I'm just trying to get a message to you,
It's a long long way from home,
An' I don't know what I'm gonna do,
It's a long long way from home
