Chris de Burgh - I’m counting on you
Tekst en muziek: Chris de Burgh
(1982)






The night is so wild and downstairs the child
Is sleeping, her spirit is free
For more than an hour I have walked in the rain
I have been wondering what she will be
But where are the heroes, where are the dreams
That I had, when I was young
Am I hoping in vain, just to think
She could change anything
Well, I’m counting on you



I’m counting on you to bring that sweet gentleness
To your world and all that you do
My generation is losing its way
We don’t know what we’re leaving for you
So, may there be millions who feel like you do
Oh, my love



There is so much to know
There is so far to go
But you are not alone
When this is your world
And I’m counting on you



Come to me, turn to me, give me your eyes
When you see the mysteries of time
Here there are those who just live in the past
They will never let history lie
And this sad, little island is breaking my heart
With its dark shades of green
And as hard as I try, I just cannot see
Why this should be
Ohohohoho, ohohohoh
I’m counting on you



There is so much to know
There is so far to go
But you are not alone
When this is your world
And I’m counting on you
I’m counting on you
I’m counting on you
Ohoho ohoh, ohoh ohohoho
