Written by Alx Kawakami (SESAC) Eric Berdon (SESAC)

I traveled all the distance,
In search for something more.

Waking up in different places,
Another number on the door.

You never know what you'll encounter,
When a new world brings you in.
Another bag, a different weekend,
Like a feather in the wind.

But I want you...

When the road is overblown.

I want you.

Cuz there's only one way home

We could live alone on a mountain

Or on the surface of the moon,

Stranded on an desert isle.

I wouldn't care if I'm with you

And when the sun one day forgets to shine,
And the worlds an endless winter night,

It's fine, cuz when I'm holding you.

I'm home.

When I find myself away alone,
It's hard to sleep at night,

And I try to dream away the cold,
Till there's morning mist outside
I may go amazing places
That others die to see.

The only thing I'm living for
Is to have you here with me.

So I need you...

When my rose is overblown.

Yes I need you...

When theres only one way home..
