A setting sun that paints a tie-dyed sky
A feather bed, an ancient lullaby
A kiss good night from one whose love is true
That's the kind of day I wish for you

A field of flowers dancing in the spring
A little creek, a tree, an old rope swing
Cotton candy clouds against the blue
That's the kind of day I wish for you

First love with all its storm
Raging like fire within
Tossing your heart to chance
You swear the dance will never end

But then it does and someone says goodbye
And after all those empty nights you cried
The morning that you wake up good as new
That's the kind of day I wish for you

The faith of knowing deep inside your heart
That heaven holds more than just some stars
Someone's up there watching over you
That's the kind of day I wish for you
I want you (4:06)

The eagle wants a canyon
And a place where he can rest his wings a while
The drifter wants a freight train
That will carry him another hundred miles
The lion's only lookin' for something he can sink his teeth into
Oh and I want you

The devil wants a fella
With a weakness he can wrap his arms around
The champion wants a challenger
Who just might have the strength to take him down
The river wants an ocean to run towards
And pour its heart into
Oh and I want you

Oh, every time that I'm around you
Oh, I'm on fire when we touch
Oh, when I hold you boy you know
I can't get close enough
Yes I want you

I could cry and say I need you
Tell you that I die when you're not here
I could lie and say I love you
Pour a little poison in your ear
But all I'm gonna give you is
Nothing but the bare and naked truth
Baby I want you
Baby I want you
