lyrics

provided for research and private study only (see above for copyright details):

Find my love

cats are crying, gates are slamming
the wind is howling ’round the house tonight
I’m as lonely as a boat out on the sea
when the night is black and the tide is high

oh, on nights like these
feel like falling to my knees
feel like calling “heaven please…

find my love
find my love
find my love
find my love”

well, I turn the dial on my radio
trying to find an all night station
want to hear a song I know
song about my situation

oh, on nights like these
feel like falling to my knees
feel like calling “heaven please…

find my love
find my love
find my love
find my love”

somewhere out there must be
a boy for this girl
could be anywhere, could be next door
or other side of the world

call up the radio give them my number
tell them to put it out on the air
there must be someone, there must be someone like me
sitting lonely as a boat out there

oh, on nights like these
feel like falling to my knees
feel like calling “heaven please…

find my love
find my love
find my love
find my love”


oh, find my love
find my love, find my love
[repeat]

– mandolin solo
