Quicksand
(The Dream Belongs To Me)

Your sweet love is like a quicksand
Pullin' me under
And I wonder
How deep does it go

The sky is closin' up above me
Everytime you touch me
I'm like a tiger
Prowlin' in the moonlight

Sometimes love takes a funny turnaround
Can't make a paradise out of flat champagne
But once the party's started
Tell me who can complain

Love will find you
Find you walkin' on the shore
Inside the wind
It calls out to you
A longing melody
To end your lonely eyes
To stay in love with love
To live in love with love with you

I'm tellin' you love is like quicksand
Pullin' me under
And I wonder
How deep does it go
Quicksand
Quicksand pullin' me under

The sky is closin' up above me
Everytime you touch me
I'm like a tiger
Prowlin' in the moonlight

Strangers in the street
Would be lovers if they met alone
But that's not the way
This old world is made of bone

My only only prayer is someday
To see it burn with love

It will find you
Find you walkin' on the shore
Inside the wind it calls out to you
A longing melody to end your lonely eyes
To stay in love with love,
To live in love with love with you

Quicksand
Quicksand pullin' me under
