Hold Me – Ivor Steven

unnamed 2

Take me to my home
Home is where my heart is
Home’s on that windy hill
Above a hidden valley
Hovering, a heavenly cloud
Take me to my home
I’m waiting here alone
Almost packed ready to go
Vacating this old place
Leaving this world behind
Take me to my home
The beyond will be greener
I know you’ll be there
You’ve been waiting so long
I know you’ll hold me again
Hold me in our home
